Although the cause of the leak is still being investigated, officials say the company followed all emergency reporting procedures and were able to secure the site without any injuries.

The Commission is expecting an incident report from the company, after which officials say the Commission will provide an official response.

The leak began around 9:30 p.m. on Dec. 28. Originally, Apache officials had reported that the leak would be capped within 12 to 24 hours, however, it was later indicated that workers were encountering problems, delaying its capping.

The company had put up road blocks and trail heads to ensure members of the public stayed out of the area.
