Exxon admits error over massive methane leak in the Permian Basin

New Mexico's oil, gas air pollution is visible from space, study says


Exxon Mobil Corp. made a big “my bad” admission this week, saying yes, it failed to report a Permian basin greenhouse gas methane leak discovered by a third-party satellite image.

The early February incident was a violation of state rules in New Mexico according to Bloomberg. Exxon explained it discovered and repaired the leak in early February but someone forgot to file a form with regulators.
