Santa Barbara County firefighters responded to a small oil spill in the Santa Maria Valley Monday morning.

At 11:30 a.m., firefighters arrived at 5080 Black Road at the Greka oil facility. They found a leak in a six-inch line that led to 400 barrels of produced water and 1 barrel of crude oil.

The contents leaked into a secondary containment area and none of the contaminants leaked outside of this area.

Two vacuum trucks were on scene as oil and gas representatives responded.

How can Greka stay in business? They bought all the old-outdated equipment / fields from Unocal years ago- That stuff was junk then and Greka still uses it...!
