XTO operation in New Mexico faces challenge from enviros

Feds could block Eddy County oil and gas site amid worsening air pollution in New Mexico


Environmental group WildEarth Guardians went after XTO Energy and its Permian Basin operations in southeast New Mexico.

It filed a petition asking the federal government to object to a New Mexico state permit for emissions of potential air pollutants from  the XTO Energy’s Wildcat Compressor Station according to the Carlsbad Current-Argus. 

WildEarth Guardians argued the permit was inadequate to prevent dangerous air pollution at the facility about 17 miles east of Malaga in Eddy County.
