Well repairs off Texas coast halted due to approaching storm

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — Repairs to a leaking gas well just off the Texas coast have been halted because of Tropical Storm Beta, according to the city of Corpus Christi. The city said in a news release late Friday that repairs to the well owned by Houston-based Magellan E&P are temporarily “on hold” because of the approaching weather and will resume when winds and waves subside. The unmanned well owned began spewing a plume of natural gas, condensate and water on Sept. 1. There were no injuries and the city said air monitors have detected not contamination.
