UPDATE: 1 Injured in Oklahoma Pipeline Explosion, Company Shuts Down Line

Update Jun 19: 

(Reuters) - DCP Midstream temporarily shut a natural gas pipeline it owns and operates in Grady County, Oklahoma, after an explosion on Tuesday was caused by work by another company, said a DCP spokeswoman.

"The fire is out. There is no material impact on operations from this incident," Sarah Sandberg said in an email. The pipeline is a low pressure natural gas gathering line, she said.

One employee of a third party contractor involved in the work was injured in the explosion, Sandberg said.

Bale Thompson, Director of Grady County Emergency Management, said in the initial report on Jun 18 that the explosion was caused after an excavator digging for a new pipeline hit an active natural gas line.
