TransCanada Corp’s Columbia Gas Transmission (TCO) unit estimates that the damaged section of the Leach XPress Pipeline will resume operations early in July, according to Reuters.

In order to mend the pipeline, which was damaged in a blast on June 7 in Marshall County, West Virginia, the company continues to work with federal pipeline safety regulators on a repair plan. In the meantime, TransCanada will reduce capacity to zero on parts of the Leach line in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio, impacting scheduled volumes at the Stagecoach-Leach Xpress meter in Monroe County near the Ohio-West Virginia border.

That meter, which connects Leach to EQT Midstream Partners LP’s Strike Force South gathering fields in Monroe and Belmont counties in Ohio, returned to service late last week.
