U.S. govt approves Colonial gasoline line restart after leak - federal official

NEW YORK, Sept 20 The U.S. government has given verbal approval to Colonial Pipeline Co to restart pumping fuel on its main gasoline line after a leak shut it down on Sept. 9, according to a federal official.

The shutdown has caused a shortage of gasoline in the southeastern United States. Colonial has built a section of pipeline to bypass the leak and had previously said it planned to restart the line on Wednesday.

The U.S. Department of Transportation Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) is expected to issue a written approval later on Tuesday or early on Wednesday, the official said. Once Colonial receives the letter, it can begin pumping, he added. (Reporting by Jarrett Renshaw; Writing by Devika Krishna Kumar in New York; Editing by Simon Webb)
