Leak repaired at oil-pump station
ANCHORAGE | Oil began flowing again Monday through the trans-Alaska pipeline after workers installed a pipe to bypass a leak at a pump house station on the North Slope.
Alyeska Service Pipeline Co. said it hoped to increase the amount of oil in the 800-mile pipeline to 500,000 barrels during the next 24 hours.
The pipeline was carrying about 630,000 barrels a day before the leak was discovered on Jan. 8 in an underground pipe encased in concrete.
The pipeline delivers about 13 percent of the nation’s daily domestic oil production to tankers for West Coast delivery.
The oil began flowing again after crews completed a 157-foot bypass.
Lawyer: Insurance axed on Chinese drywall
MIAMI | Florida’s public insurance company has again reversed course on its coverage for homes with tainted Chinese drywall, telling some owners it will suspend such policies, an attorney for the victims said Monday.
Lawyer David Durkee, who represents about 300 people with homes containing the defective materials, said Citizens Property Insurance Corp., a state-backed insurer of last resort, has begun issuing notices to alert policyholders that their coverage will be dropped.
Citizens did not respond to a phone message and e-mail Monday. If the insurer is issuing such notices en masse, it would mark a return to its earlier attempt not to cover homes with Chinese drywall.
