Biodiesel back online at Buckeye Hartford after meter repairs

By Ron Kotrba | August 02, 2013

After going down for repairs late last week, the meter at Buckeye Terminal’s Hartford, Ill., biodiesel terminal has been repaired and proven accurate, and it is back in service allowing biodiesel deliveries to restart Aug. 1, said Jess Hewitt, president of Gulf Hydrocarbon, the terminal’s biodiesel supplier.  

“We applaud the Buckeye Pipeline terminal employees for obtaining the part so quickly and managing the repairs and proving of the meter,” Hewitt said. “Buckeye predicted the meter would be back in service by close of business on July 31 and they delivered us a proven meter fully functioning for high-speed deliveries.”

Gulf Hydrocarbon has informed its customers and suppliers that the terminal is back online to splash blend biodiesel 24/7 for Illinois and Missouri markets. Hewitt said the downtime could cost Gulf Hydrocarbon the loss of up to nearly 30,000 gallons of biodiesel sales a day.
