Magellan says less diesel spilled in Iowa than estimated

(Reuters) -- Magellan Midstream Partners on Tuesday said about 1,100 barrels of diesel had spilled from one of its refined products pipelines in Worth County, Iowa last week, lower than its earlier estimates.

"In the process of refilling the pipeline, we were able to determine the precise amount of product that had been released which was 1,115 barrels," a Magellan spokesman said in an email on Tuesday.

The volume has been reported to the appropriate regulatory agencies, he added.

The 12-inch pipeline was earlier estimated to have leaked about 3,300 barrels of diesel.

The pipeline segment between Rosemount, Minnesota and Mason City, Iowa was restarted on Jan. 28 after being taken off service following the release.
