ExxonMobil will pay more than $2.3 million as part of a settlement agreement that resolves citations for chemical releases and spills and other violations, Louisiana officials said.

The state Department of Environmental Quality said Friday the settlement addresses violations at four of the company’s facilities in Louisiana: A refinery, a resin finishing plant, a chemical plant in East Baton Rouge Parish and a tank farm facility in West Baton Rouge Parish.

The department said the company will pay a $300,000 civil penalty and fund more than $1 million in “beneficial environmental projects,” including one designed to reduce its groundwater usage.

ExxonMobil also agreed to spend at least $1 million on projects designed to prevent and control spills.
