Construction crew members punctured Royal Dutch Shell’s Houston-to-Houma (Ho-Ho) pipeline near Port Neches, Texas, Thursday, releasing 364 barrels of crude oil.

The company said it shut the pipeline after the leak and emergency crews and first responders deployed to the scene and are using absorbent booms to contain the oil, Shell officials said.

The Ho-Ho system includes a 360,000-barrel-per-day (bpd) pipeline from Port Neches, Texas, to Houma, Louisiana, and a 500,000-bpd line from Houma to the Louisiana Offshore Oil Port’s (LOOP) hub in Clovelly, Louisiana.

Another 300,000-bpd segment carries crude from the Houma terminal to St. James, Louisiana.
