HOUSTON (ICIS)--ExxonMobil's Pegasus pipeline leaked about 1 bbl of oil in Missouri, following the massive spill at the same line in Arkansas in March, the company said on Wednesday.

The leak happened in the southeastern part of the state, and clean up is nearly complete, according to the US-based energy and chemicals major.

The pipeline was out of service when the Missouri spill occurred, the company said. ExxonMobil learned of the leak on Tuesday, when a resident notified the company about staining near the pipeline.

The Arkansas spill happened at 29 March in Mayflower, and about 5,000 bbl of oil was released.
