Excerpt
Excerpt: On Saturday, August 24, 1996, about 3:26 p.m., an 8-inch-diameter steel LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) pipeline transporting liquid butane, operated by Koch Pipeline Company, LP (Koch), ruptured near Lively, Texas, sending a butane vapor cloud into a surrounding residential area. The butane vapor ignited as two area residents in a pickup truck drove into the vapor cloud. The two people died at the accident site from thermal injuries. About 25 families were evacuated from the affected area. Koch estimated its direct pipeline losses, including the loss of product from the line, to be about $217,000. Other property losses included damage to the roadway under which the rupture occurred and damage to a pickup truck, a mobile home, several outbuildings, and adjacent woodlands. The National Transportation Safety Board determined that the probable cause of this accident was the failure of Koch to adequately protect its pipeline from corrosion.
