#AceWorldNews – YEMEN – Nov.26 – Saboteurs blew up Yemen’s main oil export pipeline on Wednesday, halting crude flows, Reuters said, citing the country’s Defence Ministry and an industry source.

Wednesday’s attack occurred in the area of Habab in Marib province, halting flows to export facilities on the Red Sea.

Before the spate of attacks began three years ago, the 435km pipeline carried around 110,000 barrels per day to Ras Isa, the export terminal on the Red Sea.

` 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.
