vudukungfu: Jim_Callahan: vudukungfu: A Petrogovernment Spokesperson declared it an "isolated incident" and a "Safe source of clean energy"Um... pipeline failure, released products all incinerated, no property damage apart from the line itself because buildings nearby were kept at appropriate distance, no injuries, and the line was shut off pretty much immediately and the fire easily limited by just letting the remainder past the valve flare off. I say "limited" because it was at no point not contained, because this kind of leak is naturally self-containing in the first place.Basically, this is a pretty good indication that current procedures and standards make natgas pipelines entirely safe when followed properly.//Overland lines through areas with road access are about the safest way to transport petro precursors, pretty much exactly because this is how easy they are to contain, the fire department didn't even have to do anything but wait for the flare to die down.//The worst is water transport, since water spills are damn near impossible to contain.Shill.
