Spectra says NJ gas compressors still out

November 13, 2012

NEW YORK — Spectra Energy on Monday said two New Jersey natural gas compressor stations remain shut after Hurricane Sandy hit the state one week ago, but with no impact to customer deliveries, according to Reuters.

A company spokeswoman said in an email to Reuters that initial assessment of their natural gas facilities in the Northeast showed "minimal damage."

"Everything is capable of operating when requested, including the Linden compressor station, either from commercial power or generator back up support," the company said.

The Houston-based natural gas infrastructure company said all of its employees were safe and accounted for. The company halted construction work on its New Jersey-New York gas pipeline project due to the storm.
