An explosion has ripped through the Escravos-Lagos Pipeline in the Warri region in Nigeria’s Delta state, according to a statement from Nigerian National Petroleum Corp.

This is the same pipeline that was forced offline last week after a fire.

The cause of the explosion and the status of the pipeline’s gas supplies remain unknown, according to Reuters.
