Kerr-McGee Corp.

Weld County, CO: (May-17-07) The Environmental Protection Agency filed charges against Kerr-McGee Corp., accusing it of harmful emissions that violated the federal Clean Air Act. The suit claimed that the oil and natural gas exploration and production company was accused of violating the Clean Air Act at several of its natural gas compressor stations, including those on the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation near Vernal, and in the Denver Julesburg Basin near Weld County, Colo. Volatile organic compounds, carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide can contribute to respiratory disorders such as asthma and reduced lung capacity. They can also damage ecosystems and reduce visibility. In a settlement reached, Kerr-McGee Corp. agreed to spend $18 million to reduce harmful emissions and conserve natural gas at plants across Utah and Colorado. The control measures are expected to reduce annual emissions of air pollutants by more than 2,500 tons in Utah and more than 3,000 tons in Colorado. Kerr-McGee further agreed to pay $250,000 in fines and spend an additional $250,000 on environmental projects. [FORBES: ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION]
