LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - State and federal officials are asking Exxon Mobil to
pay more than $1.8 million in compensation for a 2013 oil spill in Arkansas.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports the funds would pay for wildlife
restoration efforts and compensate the government for damage caused when the
70-year-old Pegasus pipeline ruptured in Mayflower near Lake Conway.
The pipeline runs through Arkansas, Illinois, Missouri and Texas. It was closed
shortly after the spill, but a segment in Texas has since reopened.
