Exxon Mobil agrees to $2.4M in fines, improvements

 

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana's Department of Environmental Quality says Exxon Mobil Corp. has agreed to pay nearly $2.4 million in fines, improvements and other payments to settle violations at Baton Rouge-area plants.

Agency spokeswoman Jean Kelly says in a news release that $2.3 million will resolve violations from 2008 into this year at four plants, including the company's Baton Rouge refinery. She said in the statement Friday that another $62,000 is for a release of naphtha in June 2012 at the Baton Rouge Complex.

The settlement includes at least $1 million for beneficial environmental projects and another $1 million in improvements at the Baton Rouge Complex. The agency and Exxon Mobil also agreed to penalties for future pollution.

The settlement must be approved by the state attorney general's office before it becomes final.
