Nice picture from Josh Berry of Channel 4 on Twitter of work to remove the split section of ExxonMobil's pipeline from the Mayflower neighborhood were a major rupture loosed thousands of barrels of Canadian tar sand crude. He reports that a "drip pan" was used to catch any oil remaining in the length of pipe removed. It is going to be studied as part of the investigation into the cause of the rupture.

Berry reports that a 52-foot section was removed.
