SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sinopec Maoming Petrochemical has contained a leak found at its Maoming-Zhanjiang crude oil pipeline in south China, while an investigation on the cause is ongoing, according to a statement from the local government on Monday.

The Maoming-Zhanjiang crude oil pipeline leaked around 10 tonnes of crude oil into the Nanxi River in the afternoon of 13 January, the Zhanjiang municipal government said in the statement.

However, the local source of drinking water was not affected, as the pipeline was shut as soon as the leak was found, the statement added.
