Re: “Critics rap Exxon’s oilfield practices at South Texas ranch” by Bloomberg News, April 25 Business section
The article sensationalizes views of a few individuals who are suing Exxon Mobil and is not a balanced report.
Around the world, we work cooperatively with thousands of landowners and local communities and quickly resolve any issues or concerns that may arise.
This is the approach that we were taking in South Texas. We have been working in good faith to address concerns raised by relatives of two landowners and have been attentive and responsive.
Our efforts to address their concerns have been hampered by their decision to take legal action and cut off direct communication. We prefer to resolve issues directly and believe there is little gained from years of protracted litigation.
We are removing unnecessary equipment, conducting environmental tests and remediating affected areas, where appropriate. We are working with the Texas Railroad Commission to ensure compliance with all regulations.
We are a responsible operator and refute any accusations that suggest otherwise.
