A report by federal investigators says Exxon Mobil (XOM) could have reduced the amount of oil spilled after a July 2011 Montana pipeline rupture if it had taken faster action. The report says the volume of the 1,500-barrel spill into the Yellowstone River would have been far less if upstream valves were immediately closed, according to the AP.
