Ruptured Pipeline in Yellowstone River Oil Spill Regularly Carried Tar Sands Oil

The EPA now says there is no more danger of further oil spilling from the ruptured pipeline under the Yellowstone River , but several big questions remain--especially considering that ExxonMobil now says that tar sands oil routinely was carried by the Silvertip pipeline .

If the Silvertip pipeline carried tar sands oil, its corrosive properties could have been a factor in causing the Yellowstone spill.
