Oil stranded by pipeline break could be trucked out

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) - ExxonMobil is asking for a second time to use trucks to move more than 17 million gallons of crude oil stranded in storage tanks after a California pipeline break last year.
    
Officials in Santa Barbara County are expected to decide in about a week whether to grant the request.
    
A similar proposal was rejected last year.
    
If approved, the company would run up to 30 truck trips a day for as long as six months to move the remaining crude.
    
The oil was marooned after a pipe owned by Plains All American Pipeline ruptured in May.
    
The break created the largest coastal oil spill in California in 25 years, fouling beaches near Santa Barbara and spreading goo as far as 100 miles away.
    
The pipeline is shut indefinitely.
