LONDON — An estimated 1,300 barrels of oil have spilled into the U.K. North Sea from a leaking pipeline at a Royal Dutch Shell PLC platform since last Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal reported.

If Shell’s estimate is correct, the oil spill is the largest to affect the country since 2000.

Shell has been working to contain a leak from a ruptured undersea pipe at the Gannet Alpha platform since last Wednesday, the article stated.

Shell said the leak is “under control” and that the well that feeds the pipeline remains closed.
