US fuel pipeline resumes after 6-day shutdown

Washington: Operator of a major US fuel pipeline, who was forced to shut down for six days due to a cyber security attack, said it has resumed operations.
As reported by the news agency Xinhua, the Colonial Pipeline Company said that the first step in the restart process began around 5 pm Wednesday.
“After this restart, it will take several days for the product distribution supply chain to return to normal.
“Some markets served by Colonial Pipeline may experience intermittent service during the start-up period,” the company said.
“Colonial gasoline, diesel and jet fuel will move as safely as possible and will continue to do so until markets return to normal,” continued.
The colonial pipeline company temporarily halted all pipeline operations following a May 7 ransomware-linked cyber attack attack.
The Colonial Pipeline is America’s largest refined-product pipeline, transporting more than 100 million gallons of fuel per day on the East Coast.
