NEW YORK, Aug 11 (Reuters) - Marathon Oil Corp.’s (MRO.N) 222,000 barrel per day Catlettsburg, Kentucky, refinery is at reduced rates following a leak that shut down one of the company’s crude oil pipelines, traders and local media said on Monday.
Marathon’s pipeline that carries crude oil from a major tank farm near Patoka, Illinois, to Owensboro, Kentucky, ruptured Sunday morning, spilling as much as 4,000 barrels of oil, the Evansville Courier Press reported on Sunday.
A company spokesman was quoted by the Courier Press as saying that the pipeline was shut down.
A company spokesman was not immediately available to comment. (Reporting by Rebekah Kebede)
