TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- An Oklahoma pipeline company that halted transport of gasoline and other fuel after Harvey devastated parts of the Texas Gulf Coast hopes to resume deliveries this weekend.

Dolin Argo, vice president of operations and business development for Tulsa-based Explorer Pipeline, said Friday that the company closed its two main pipelines days ago. Argo says deliveries should resume this weekend if refined fuel products are available from Texas refineries.

Several refineries in the Houston area shut down as Harvey flooded area cities.

Argo says Explorer personnel were examining above-ground facilities for possible damage.

Explorer is owned by Phillips66, Marathon, Sunoco Logistics and Shell.
