ExxonMobil Corp. (XOM) shut down an oil pipeline system at the Port of Long Beach, Calif. Monday after discovering a crude leak in the area, a company spokesman confirmed.
The THUMS oil pipeline system, which connects to the company's refinery in Torrance, Calif., was taken offline "in an abundance of caution" after an oil leak was discovered in the vicinity of the system, according to ExxonMobil spokesman Aaron Stryck. The oil has been contained, Mr. Stryck said, without quantifying how much oil was released. ExxonMobil has not yet confirmed the leak's source and as of Monday night was working to determine how much oil had been spilled.
The THUMS pipeline delivers crude oil produced in Long Beach Harbor to ExxonMobil's refinery in Torrance, Calif., which can process up to 155,000 barrels per day of crude.
The leak did not have an impact on any waterways, according to a filing with the California Emergency Management Agency.
