ExxonMobil cleaning up small leak in SE Missouri


ST. LOUIS (AP) — ExxonMobil officials say cleanup is nearly complete after an oil leak from the Pegasus pipeline in southeast Missouri.

The leak was discovered Tuesday near Doniphan, Mo., a small town just north of the Arkansas border. About 42 gallons of crude oil — or roughly one barrel — spilled into the yard of a home.

The Pegasus pipeline already was out of service following another breach near Mayflower, Ark., on March 29. That breach resulted in a spill involving thousands of barrels of oil.

It was not immediately clear what caused the small Missouri leak while the line was shut down. ExxonMobil says in a statement that the company is working with regulators to investigate.
