Buckeye Partners LP initiated start-up procedures August 26 at BORCO, its marine terminal in the Bahamas. Buckeye had suspended operations at the terminal the night of August 24 as part of its preparations to secure the facility for Hurricane Irene. The storm passed the Bahamas with effectively no adverse impact on the facility.
Clark C Smith, Buckeye’s president and chief operating officer, said, “We also will be resuming work on our expansion project at BORCO now that the storm has passed. Safety is a top priority at Buckeye. We have well-established plans that we activate during storm conditions to secure our facilities, and we will continue to make every effort to ensure safe operations.”
Buckeye also prepared its facilities along the East Coast for storm conditions related to Hurricane Irene.
