WILLARD BAY, Utah – The pipeline that leaked thousands of gallons of fuel into the wetlands near Willard Bay has been sold.

Tesoro Logistics L.P. will pay $355 million to buy the pipeline from Chevron.

Tesoro plans to invest at least $15 million to $25 million during the next two years in order to place an inspection program designed to boost the integrity of the pipeline system, according to a press release from Tesoro.

However, Chevron will still be responsible for the cleanup at the spill site.
