HOUSTON CHANNEL TEMPORARILY CLOSED FROM LYONDELL D DOCK TO THE VALERO FACILITY

COTP Houston/Galveston has temporarily closed the Houston Ship Channel to all vessel traffic from the Lyondell D Dock to the Valero facility due to an incident involving a vessel dragging a submerged pipeline across the Houston Ship Channel.

The location of the dredge pipeline is unknown at this time. The channel will be re-opened to all traffic when the dredge pipeline is located and refloated. There are submerged dredge pipelines crossing at LT 152, LT 160, Pasadena and across the Lyondell Turning Basin. Source: Moran-Gulf Shipping Agency, Houston.
