BUENOS AIRES, April 6 (Reuters) - Argentina's state-controlled energy company, YPF, said on Sunday it had contained a small oil spill that occurred following the rupture of a pipeline the night before because of heavy rains in the southern Neuquen province.

The region's water sources have not been affected by the filtering out of roughly 20 cubic meters of oil and 380 cubic meters of produced water, YPF added. (Reporting by Maximiliano Rizzi; Writing by Alexandra Ulmer; Editing by Steve Orlofsky)
