NEW YORK, April 15 (Reuters) - Wolverine Pipeline Co said on Friday it shut its Spartan products pipeline, which carries up to 30,000 barrels-per-day of refined products from its Stockbridge terminal to Lansing, Michigan and Bay City, Michigan as it investigates a leak near the terminal.

“We haven’t determined the source of the leak and the pipeline is shut as a precaution,” company spokesman Jerry Johnson said.

A farmer called Wolverine Wednesday evening and reported the smell of gasoline. [ID:nN14193500]

Wolverine transports gasoline from Chicago-area refineries to terminals in Michigan and Northwest Indiana.
