About 42,000 gallons of crude oil spilled in Billings, Oklahoma, Thursday night, said officials at Magellan Midstream Partners.
The oil company said the oil spilled from a pipeline that runs from Enid to Ponca City. The company said there were no injuries or evacuations because of the incident.
Authorities were able to shut down the pipeline and said the spilled oil ended up contained to a small area. Crews said the majority of the crude oil ended up recaptured.
Crews spent the evening cleaning up the oil and said the soil the oil had an impact on would also end up cleaned.
The cause of the incident is under investigation.
