An Exxon sign at a mini-mart in Dormont, Pa. Exxon Mobil Corp. is fighting against government investigators who believe the company covered up knowledge of how fossil fuels contribute to climate change in this April 29, 2014 file photo. Exxon went to state court in Texas on Wednesday, April 13, 2016, to seek to quash a subpoena issued last month by the attorney general of the U.S. Virgin Islands. The company says the investigation violates its constitutional rights to speak freely and to be protected from unreasonable searches and seizures.(AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar, File)

FILE - In this April 4, 1989 file photo, a sea otter swims in Valdez harbor in Prince William Sound, Alaska. Oil spilled from the Exxon Valdez extends farther into Alaska tidal waters than previously thought and likely is causing long-term harm to wildlife, according to a paper published Tuesday May 16, 2006. The study by National Marine Fisheries Service researchers conclude that oil remains in lower intertidal areas where predators such as sea otters and ducks may encounter it while disturbing sediment in search of prey. Nearly 25 years after the Exxon Valdez oil spill off the coast of Alaska, some damage heals, some effects linger in Prince William Sound. (AP Photo/Jack Smith, File)
