NEW YORK — Canadian Pacific Railway (CP Railway) has completed the cleanup of an oil spill in Minnesota following the derailment of 14 rail cars carrying crude oil to Chicago from Alberta.

"Any remaining surface material was loaded into sealed trucks and then moved to an appropriate landfill site," a spokesman for the Calgary, Alberta-based company told AMM via e-mail, adding that the cleanup was completed March 30.

Three of the 14 derailed cars were punctured in the March 27 incident.

Sources have said that the spill, which was estimated to have released less than 15,000 gallons of oil, could raise concerns about the growing transport of crude oil via rail (, March 29).
