Tesoro Reports State's Largest Oil Spill

Posted: Updated:

An oil pipeline spill that happened near Tioga last fall could take about two years to clean up.

Work has continued at the Tioga site where a pipeline, owned by Tesoro Corp, began leaking crude on September 29. Approximately 20,600 barrels spilled, one of the largest spills in state history.

Health inspector David Glatt, says the oil has seeped at least 30 feet into the ground.

Glatt also says the oil will need to be thermally treated by heating and burning off the crude.
So far Tesoro has recovered approximately 6,000 barrels of oil.
