Arkansas AG sets deadline for Exxon documents

Posted: Updated:

MAYFLOWER (AP) - Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has set an April 10 deadline for ExxonMobil to produce documents connected to the company's oil spill in Mayflower.

McDaniel issued a subpoena earlier this week for Exxon's investigative and inspection reports, videos and other data regarding the Pegasus pipeline that ruptured last week in central Arkansas.

Exxon has said it will comply with McDaniel's subpoena.

A corrective action order from federal pipeline safety officials say about 3,500 to 5,000 barrels of crude oil spilled after the pipeline ruptured. More than 20 homes in the area have been evacuated.

The attorney general toured the oil spill area Wednesday. McDaniel says residents deserve an explanation of what happened and what effect it had on private property and the environment.
