(WHITING) - BP officials notified state environmental officials more than 500 pounds of sulfur dioxide were released into the air following Wednesday night's explosion at a process unit at the Whiting Refinery.

Indiana Department of Environmental Management spokesman Dan Goldblatt says the agency is still preparing a report but the initial indication is that the release didn't cause any air quality problems.

BP spokesman Scott Dean says there's no indication the explosion had any environmental impact.
