The July 1 pipeline break near Laurel spilled about 42,000 gallons, or 1,000 barrels, of crude oil into the scenic waterway.
Exxon Mobil's cost estimate includes $40 million for emergency response work and $2.5 million for damage to public and private property. The company valued the lost oil at $100,000.
The company announced last week that the clean up might continue for several more months.
Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) has a potential upside of 30.6% based on a current price of $70.78 and an average consensus analyst price target of $92.46.
