    Exxon's nod to seam risk in decree seen as notable

    Exxon Mobil's agreement to treat the northern segment of the Pegasus pipeline as susceptible to seam failure has renewed a debate that began more than two years ago in the months after the pipeline cracked open in a Mayflower subdivision, spilling thick, black crude through the neighborhood. That agreement is a key element of a proposed consent degree on which two Exxon Mobil subsidiaries officially concurred with the federal and state governments Wednesday, and it's an issue in other litigation and discussion resulting from the March 29, 2013, oil spill.
