exterior brick opening with water pipe extension - best way to seal openingl?

have this unsealed opening in exterior brick work which has a water pipe extending from it that goes to the outside fawcett.

the area is noted in pic and is below a deck area so it stays dry

the open allows cold air to vent directly into basement.

what sealing material is best to seal this area?

thanks

I would probably first put a piece of foam pipe wrap around the pipe. Then cut yourself a board to cover the bottom half of the hole... cut out for the pipe, and temporarily screw it to the wall. Fill the hole with a redi-mix concrete mix that you have mixed to a stiff consistency. once you've filled the bottom half and packed it, add a 1x4 across the opening (temp screwed to the sides), then fill and pack that. That will leave you a couple inches over the top of the 1x4 to fill and pack, which you should be able to do without fastening another board on top. Just float the surface until its smooth.

isnt there some expanding foam insulative material that can be injected to seal up this area?

I've sealed a number of pipe and conduit penetrations using foam. So far, no problems. And you can't beat the price and ease of installation.
