  1. Oil and Gas: No spill reported from derailed tanker cars with natural gas

      EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say four train cars carrying liquefied petroleum gas have derailed in a Los Angeles suburb but there's no spill and nobody has been hurt. El Segundo fire Capt. Evan Siefke (SIF'-kee) says the tanker cars derailed Thursday afternoon as they were coming from the nearby Chevron oil refinery . Three cars overturned and one remained upright. Siefke says it's unclear whether the rainy weather in the region played any role in the accident. He says there are no active leaks and train crews were en route with heavy equipment to right the cars but it could take several hours. The train belongs to BNSF Railway . Federal Railroad Administration inspectors were sent to the scene.
