Spectra did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The pipeline is the second crude system delivering into the Wood River Refinery to shut as a result of flooding following severe weather throughout parts of the Midwest. Phillips 66 operates the 306,000 barrel-per-day refinery, which is located in Roxana.
On Tuesday, Enbridge confirmed its 200,000 barrel-per-day Ozark pipeline, which runs from Cushing, Okla., to Wood River, shut due to the flooding.
