    LAS VEGAS (AP) — A leak in a fuel pipeline facility in California forced a shutdown of deliveries of gasoline and diesel from the Los Angeles area
    east to areas including Las Vegas and Phoenix, but officials said Friday
    they believed supplies would not immediately be affected.

    Pipeline operator Kinder Morgan told The Associated Press the leak was discovered Thursday afternoon at a company station near Los Angeles and
    that its CALNEV and SFPP West pipelines were shut down while the Houston-
    based pipeline operator worked to resolve the issue.

    “There are no injuries or fire reported as a result of this incident,”
    said a company statement, provided by Katherine Hill, communications
    manager for the publicly traded company. It did not say how much fuel
    leaked or when service would be restored.

    Hill did not immediately respond to email and telephone messages seeking
    more information.

    “The appropriate regulatory agencies have been notified, and an
    investigation into the cause and quantity of the release will be
    conducted,” the statement said. “We are working closely with our customers
    on potential impacts.”

    In Las Vegas, officials were “monitoring the situation, believe we have adequate supply, and do not anticipate an immediate impact on gas availability,” according to a statement from Clark County spokesperson
    Erik Pappa.

    The county said the pipeline provides fuel storage facilities in Southern Nevada with unleaded and diesel fuel. Another pipeline operated by UNEV Pipeline LLC serves the Las Vegas area from northern Utah.

    The Kinder Morgan website says its 566-mile (911-kilometer) CALNEV
    pipeline transports gasoline, diesel and jet fuel from Los Angeles
    refineries and marine terminals through parallel 14-inch (35.5-centimeter)
    and 8-inch (20-centimeter) diameter pipelines to Barstow, California, and
    the Las Vegas area.

    Hill said later that only the larger, 14-inch (35.5-centimeter) pipeline
    to Las Vegas had been shut down.

    Airports it serves include Nellis Air Force Base and Harry Reid
    International in Las Vegas and Edwards Air Force Base in California's
    Mojave Desert, the company said.

    Kinder Morgan's SFPP West pipeline runs approximately 515 miles (829 kilometers) to transport petroleum products from the Los Angeles area to
    Colton and Imperial, California, and east to Phoenix.
