That’s weird, those things usually don’t just explode or catch on fire.

I saw a pipeline burst once ... it was already leaking. What you get is “slimed” even if you are at some distance ... oil, more like fluid tar, all I got was a “dotted shirt” .... But no fire, no explosion. This sounds like someone had a match in their pocket.

It started to begin around the 30th of October. That is when gas prices started to go up around Dacula, GA.

You are right. The war has between Iran and Saudi Arabia has officially begun?

Perhaps they were doing some welding on the P/L. and sprung a leak.

Didn’t Bahrain already blame this explosion on Iran?

Oil? Looks like HP natural gas (NG).

When a HP NG line fails (corrosion) it does look like that. There are material issues around the gulf states because of salty sands. If the line is not properly maintained (corrosion protection), they will fail.
