FLORESVILLE -- Officials say a pressure build-up in a natural gas pipeline Jan. 13 in Yoakum caused a discharge at an Enterprise Products Partners LP site on F.M. 536 between C.R. 105 and F.M. 2505 northwest of here.

Wilson County Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr. said reports of a possible explosion came in at approximately 4:45 a.m. Deputies arrived and determined that no explosion had occurred.

Enterprise spokesman Rick Rainey said a line feeding into a processing facility in Yoakum experienced a surge in pressure at 4:13 a.m. An automated system that monitors the line opened a relief valve at the site on F.M. 536, which allowed the gas to be discharged before operating pressure was exceeded. The system, he said, worked exactly the way it was designed and there were no reports of injury or fire.
