` Oil leaked from ` BP’s Whiting Oil Refinery ‘ into Lake Michigan ‘

#AceEnvironmentNews – INDIANA – March 25 – Oil leaked from BP’s Whiting oil refinery in Indiana into Lake Michigan after a mechanical glitch on Monday afternoon, Reuters reported.

The spill has been contained, according to Indiana environmental officials.

Sources say a relatively small amount of oil was released, but the exact amount was unknown. BP said Tuesday that the largest crude distillation unit at the 405,000-barrel-per-day refinery was back to normal operations following an overnight malfunction that led to the leak.
