Chevron cited for oil spill in Salt Lake City

Federal regulators say it was 10 hours before Chevron Corp. discovered that crude oil was spilling from a pipeline into a Salt Lake City creek.

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration fined Chevron $423,600 on Monday and ordered it to do a better job monitoring the pipeline.

Chevron spokesman Dan Johnson says the company has 30 days to respond to the citation.

The pipeline administration says that Chevron apparently doesn't have a good way to monitor pipeline leaks. The company had to be notified by firefighters about the spill, which fouled Red Butte Creek with an estimated 33,000 gallons of crude oil in June.

The pipeline delivers crude oil 182 miles from Rangely, Colo., to Chevron's Salt Lake City refinery.
