Company responsible for South Coast oil spill has history of pipeline problems

Posted: Updated:

Tuesday's oil spill off the coast of Santa Barbara isn't the first time the company responsible, Plains All-American Pipeline, has had a problem with its pipelines and with spills. 

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says just a few years ago, Plains had to spend more than $41 million to upgrade more than 10,000 miles of crude oil pipelines the company had violations already for 10 crude oil spills in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Kansas. 

Just last year they had an above ground 10,000-gallon oil spill in Los Angeles.
