The state-run oil refiner CPC Corp, Taiwan yesterday said that it was finishing the cleanup from a ruptured pipe carrying boiler fuel oil, but the cause of the incident was still under investigation by the Industrial Technology Research Institute.

CPC vice president Chang Ray-chung (張瑞宗) said that most of the sections of Tsaolan (草濫溪) and Neikou (內溝溪) creeks in New Taipei City that were contaminated by the spill have been cleaned up.

More than 630,000 liters of oil were spilled in Shijhih District (汐止) on Monday last week.
