AUDIO: ExxonMobil executives address the media

Gary Pruessing, president of ExxonMobil Pipeline Company, addressed the media on the company’s response to the Yellowstone River oil spill Tuesday afternoon. I’ve posted the audio below in two parts.

I apologize for the break, but my recorder died during the conference call and I had to switch to a backup recorder. There’s about a 5-10 second break. I also apologize for the low volume on the first clip. You’ll want to turn up the volume on your computer for the first part, and then be sure to turn it down again for the second. I’ve also included download links here: Part 1, Part 2.
