Exxon Mobil estimates Montana Oil Spill Will Cost $42M

Exxon Mobil Pipeline Co. has told federal regulators that its oil pipeline spill into Montana’s Yellowstone River will cost an estimated $42.6 million. That figure was included in documents obtained Monday by The Associated Press as a result of a public information request submitted to federal pipeline regulators. The July 1 pipeline break near Laurel spilled an estimated 42,000 gallons, or 1,000 barrels, of crude oil into the scenic waterway Exxon Mobil’s cost estimate includes $40 million for emergency response work and $2.5 million for damage to public and private property. The company valued the lost oil at $100,000. About 1,000 people are involved in mopping up the spill, which fouled dozens of miles of riverbank. Exxon Mobil said last week the cleanup may continue for several more months.
