The Santa Barbara County Fire Department reports between 8-10 barrels of crude oil were spilled in the Santa Maria Valley late Wednesday morning.
At 11:15 p.m., an inspector arrived at the Greka oil facility on 5080 Black Road and found oil had leaked from a 1/2 inch line. The line was shut down and the oil was contained in secondary confinement.
No waterways were affected and all appropriate notifications have been made on state and federal levels as mitigation is underway said Captain Dave Bertucelli.
The cause is under investigation.
