Colonial Pipeline pays hackers $4M-$5M to get pipeline back online: report
Colonial Pipeline supplies almost half of the East Coast's gasoline

Colonial Pipeline Co. likely paid more than $4 million to hackers in order to get its pipeline back up and running.

"The payments have been made to the terrorists," billionaire John Catsimatidis, told FOX Business' Maria Bartiromo on Thursday morning. "I understand from my sources that $4 million was paid."

A restarting of the pipeline will in the next few days help restore the flow of gasoline across the Eastern part of the U.S where fuel shortages are abundant. The 5,500-mile Colonial Pipeline, which transports more than 100 million gallons of fuel per day, or almost half of the East Coast's supply, was taken offline on Friday by a Russian hacking group called DarkSide that demanded $100 million ransom.

About 68% of gas stations in North Carolina reported fuel outages, according to Gas Buddy. Roughly half of the gas stations in Georgia, South Carolina, Washington, D.C., and Virginia also reported outages.

Catsimatidis added that the pipeline "will be flowing by Monday at the latest."


Bloomberg News reported later Thursday, citing two people familiar with the transaction, that Colonial paid the hackers nearly $5 million.

Once the payment was made, in untraceable cryptocurrency, the hackers gave the pipeline operator a decrypting tool to restore the network, according to the Bloomberg report.

Colonial Pipeline declined to comment when contacted by FOX Business. A Department of Energy spokesperson referred FOX Business to Colonial Pipeline.
