Exxon Mobil shuts oil pipelines due to flood threat

HOUSTON, May 13 (Reuters) - Exxon Mobil (XOM.N) Pipeline Co has shut three crude oil pipeline segments near Baton Rouge, Louisiana, out of concern about Mississippi River flooding, a spokeswoman said Friday.

Two 12-inch (30.5-cm) crude line segments of the North Line system north of Baton Rouge and one 16-inch segment of the Southwest line across the river from Baton Rouge were shut and filled with water until flooding ends. (Reporting by Bruce Nichols)
