A Houston company failed to adequately mark the path of a buried 36-inch natural gas pipeline in Johnson County that was struck and exploded in June, killing one person, according to the Texas Railroad Commission.
Enterprise Products Operating Llc. violated several state regulations, the commission said in a report. Fines could be $10,000 per day per violation.
The explosion, which could be seen for miles, occurred June 7 when the carbon-steel pipeline was struck by an auger drilling a 48-inch-diameter hole to install high-wire electrical poles. The operator of the auger truck was killed. McClatchy Newspapers, Houston Chronicle 09/01/2010
