Enbridge estimates 6,100 barrels of crude oil spilled near Chicago, Illinois

Enbridge Energy Partners, L.P., says it has completed the "drain up" of remaining oil in the pipeline segment on Line 6A in the United States that leaked crude oil earlier in the week.  Enbridge estimates that 6,100 barrels of oil escaped in the leak that has required the line to be shut down. 

The U.S. House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure scheduled a hearing for today in Washington to look into the other recent Enbridge spill that sent an estimated 1 million gallons into the Kalamazoo River area.
