Cleanup is currently under way in Indianapolis after about 500 bbl of
diesel fuel leaked there from a Marathon Petroleum pipeline
last week, a company spokeswoman said.
The "vast majority" of product has been recovered, and the
affected section of pipe has been cut out and sent for testing
to determine what caused the breach, Marathon Petroleum
spokeswoman Sid Barth said.
The leak in the eight-inch pipeline, which runs from the
company's Robinson III. refinery to a terminal in Lima,
Ohio, was reported to the company. The line wasn't active at
the time, Ms. Barth said.
Ms. Barth also said a crude oil pipeline, which runs from
Wood River to Patoka III., leaked about two gallons of crude
and about 2,500 bbl of water while it was being tested during
routine maintenance over the weekend.
