Same Old Tune

We have no idea how this could have happened.

An Exxon Mobil pipeline that runs under the Yellowstone River in Montana ruptured Friday night and leaked for about a half-hour.

The New York Times reported that the town of Lauren, downstream from the rupture, had to be evacuated because officials feared a possible explosion.

Exxon said it had no information on the cause of the incident, which originated from a 12-inch pipeline that runs from Silver Tip to refineries in Billings.

Raw Story

It was mysterious, and no one could have foreseen that running an oil pipeline under water might have certain risks and possible negative consequences.

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
