Cleanup Underway After Centurion Pipeline Oil Spill in Oklahoma

Cleanup is underway in Yukon, Oklahoma after a pipeline burst on Sunday, spilling an estimated 1,000 barrels of crude oil into a private pond.

The spill occurred from a pipe owned by Centurion Pipeline, a subsidiary of Occidental Petroleum Corp. The company said the release has been contained.

The EPA told local reporters that hundreds of dead fish are being removed from the private pond as cleanup continues.

Centurion sent local reporters an updated statement Monday saying the company has made significant improvements in removing oil from the pond and that it will conduct an investigation to determine the cause of the incident.
