Canadian, Texas Gas Plant Explosion: No Injuries Reported

Posted: Updated:

CANADIAN, Texas (AP) — An energy company is working to reroute natural gas for processing after a fiery explosion closed one of its nine Texas Panhandle units.

Todd Johnson with Houston-based Eagle Rock Energy Partners L.P. had no estimate Tuesday on when the Phoenix-Arrington Ranch plant near Canadian would reopen.

Johnson says the cause of Monday's accident has not been determined. The damage is to the main receipt point for raw natural gas. The unit processes about 80 million cubic feet of natural gas daily.

Johnson says the effect on the U.S. supply would not be significant.

About a dozen workers were at the facility during the accident. Nobody was hurt and the fire burned itself out by Tuesday.
