Regency Field Services LLC, which owns a natural gas plant in southeastern New Mexico, will pay the state nearly $70,000 to settle a case involving allegations of air quality violations.
The New Mexico Environment Department announced the settlement with Regency Field Services Friday. State officials said Regency reported the violations as required by law and has since taken action to prevent further violations.
The violations included failure to demonstrate compliance with certain emissions limits and failure to maintain certain records. The plant also failed to conduct certain tests and did not assure that monitoring equipment was working properly.
The department said it became aware of the violations through two reports submitted by Regency in 2013.
