Exxon Cleanup Under Way in Yellowstone River

CNBC reports that Exxon Mobil’s (NYSE:XOM) oil pipeline that spewed crude oil into Montana’s Yellowstone River was temporarily shut down in May.

The market news is quoted as saying,

Exxon Mobil officials estimated that up to 1,000 barrels, or 42,000 gallons, spilled late Friday night before the flow from the damaged pipeline was stopped. The break near Laurel has fouled miles of riverbank and forced municipalities and irrigation districts to close intakes across eastern Montana.
