*OPERATOR OF RUPTURED GAS PIPELINE FINED IN 2011: The operator of the Texas Eastern natural gas pipeline, which ruptured rather spectacularly beneath the Arkansas River near the Little Rock airport at the beginning of the month, was fined by federal regulators a few years ago for violations of maintenance protocols. The AP reports that in 2011, "Spectra Energy was cited during the 2011 inspection for three violations, including failure to inspect sections of pipe for corrosion, and was required to pay a civil penalty of $134,500, according to reports by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration."
