TOLBERT- Cleanup efforts have completed at an oil spill site in Pointe Coupee Parish and now ExxonMobil is shifting to reclamation and remediation work.

ExxonMobil says they've done everything they can to ensure a successful cleanup at the site where more than 80,000 gallons of oil reportedly spilled from a pipeline.

Officials say they're working with the EPA and DEQ and will be there as long as it takes to make sure everything gets back to normal.
