SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Environment Department says it has reached a settlement with Frontier Field Services LLC over alleged emissions violations at the company’s gas plant in Eddy County.

The Empire Abo Gas Plant was accused of exceeding permit limits for carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide and other emissions on several occasions between July 2011 and December 2012.

It also was accused of flaring gas that should have been rerouted back into processing.

The settlement requires a civil penalty payment of more than $938,000.

The Environment Department says Frontier has taken corrective action to prevent future violations.
