Oil Spill in California: Broken Pipeline Leaks 30,000 Gallons of Crude in Ventura County

A leak in an oil pipeline in Ventura County, California, was detected Thursday morning around 5:30 a.m. By 8:45 a.m., the spilled crude oil flowed from Hall Canyon a half-mile down Prince Barranca Valley, about one mile inland from San Buenaventura State Beach. Early estimates put the spill at around 5,000 barrels, which was later adjusted down to 700.

One barrel of oil contains 42 gallons, so nearly 30,000 gallons of crude may have been spilled.  Read more.
