LINE 63 PUT BACK INTO SERVICE BY FOUR CORNERS PIPE LINE CO.

 LOS ANGELES, April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Service was resumed early this morning on Four Corners Pipe Line Co.'s Line 63, following installation of a new section of pipeline near the Kern County, Calif., community of Lebec.
 It is estimated that about 3,500 barrels of crude oil spilled from the line Tuesday morning (April 6). Following excavation of the line, it was determined that a crack had occurred in a radial weld in the 16-inch diameter pipe.
 At the time of the leak, the line had been carrying about 70,000 barrels per day of crude oil from California's San Joaquin Valley into the Los Angeles basin.
 Approximately 2,200 barrels of spilled oil have been recovered. Clean-up activities are proceeding under the supervision of the California State Department of Fish and Game.
