NEW YORK, Jan 20 (Reuters) - Sunoco (SUN.N) shut a pipeline crude oil pipeline in Oklahoma on Wednesday after finding a leak, the company told government regulators.

The company said there were no injuries and the 1,250-barrel spill in Garvin County, south of Oklahoma City, was contained and clean up was underway. The 10-inch (25-cm) line runs about 20 miles (32 km) from Eola to Maysville, Oklahoma.

Spokesman Thomas Golembeski said Sunoco did not think any refineries were directly supplied by this line.

Two refineries, Gary William’s 70,000 barrel per day refinery in Wynnewood and Holly’s HOC.N two Tulsa 70,300 bpd and 85,000 bpd facilities, are located near line which runs between Maysville and Eola. [ID:nN20143421]

Holly’s refinery was still receiving crude on Thursday afternoon, a company spokesman said.

“The cause of the release is being investigated,” Golembeski said, adding that customer impact is minimal.

Valero Energy Corp (VLO.N), which operates a 87,400 barrel-per-day refinery in Ardmore, Oklahoma, said there was no disruption to supply, according to spokesman Bill Day.
