Jan 31 (Reuters) - Suncor Energy (SU.TO) on Tuesday said a small leak that was detected in refining process equipment has been contained at its 103,000 barrel-per-day Commerce City refinery in Colorado.

"All workers have been accounted for, and there have been no reported injuries," the company said in a notice.

In late December, the entire refinery was shut down and put into safe mode to allow for the inspection of all units after equipment damage due to extreme weather.
