Renda Continues To Pump Fuel In Nome

The Renda has been pumping fuel for about 24 hours now.  Sitnasuak Board Chair Jason Evans estimates that about a half million gallons have flowed into the tanks as of this afternoon.   Crews stopped the flow of gas last night around 2 a.m. after finishing a compartment of gas on the Renda.  There were no serious issues, but they wanted to replace one 400-foot section of hose.  They conducted more pressure testing this afternoon before starting back up on gas operations.  Diesel has been flowing non-stop since that hose came online.

Evans says 24 watch of the lines continues.
