Pemex Brings Damaged Pipeline Back Online

Mexico's state oil company Pemex has restarted operations at the 36-inch Guanajuato-Guadalajara natural gas pipeline, which suffered two explosions late last week, the company said in a statement.

Pemex installed a bypass in order to connect the undamaged portions of the pipeline and reestablish flow.

Specifically, the Celaya-Salamanca section of the pipeline restarted operations Sunday and the Guadalajara-Aguascalientes section of the same infrastructure was due to restart operations Monday morning.

Meanwhile, the eight-inch Anil-Cuernavaca gasoline pipeline in Mexico City's Iztapalapa district is back online after rains caused the infrastructure to rupture last week, Pemex said in a separate statement.
