HOUSTON, June 24 (Reuters) - Martin Midstream Partners said on Monday it had recovered around 1,250 barrels of crude oil following a pipeline spill that occurred earlier this month.

The company became aware of the spill on June 15 and is working with the Environmental Protection Agency and several state agencies to respond to the spill, Martin said in a statement.

The spill, which totaled some 2,000 barrels of oil, originated from a transfer pipeline that connects Martin Midstream's Sandyland Terminal to the 7,500 barrels per day naphthenic lube refinery in Smackover, Arkansas.

The spill traveled around two miles from the pipeline, according to the EPA, and clean-up efforts involve removing oil from two creeks to prevent the sheen from leaking into Ouachita River. (Reporting by Georgina McCartney in Houston; Editing by Leslie Adler and Matthew Lewis)
