The highest known members of the sequence are 46186474937633 46186474937957 46186474938281, differing by 324. However no repeating gap of 318 is know below 5e13 according to Johnson and Resta.

I might have a look at 5e13 to 6e13

A minor correction to your original comment: Repeated gaps are all 0mod6 except for the triplet 3, 5, 7.

Also, I believe the name for this is "balanced primes." You can read more about that here.
