Guam - The federal government has asked the District Court to approve and enter a consent decree in a federal complaint it filed under the Clean Air Act against Mobil Oil Guam and Mobil Oil Mariana Islands.  The two subsidiaries of Exxon Mobil Corporation agreed to pay $2.4 million for air pollution violations. 

The feds allege the two companies illegally discharged hundreds of tons of volatile organic compounds into the air each year from their bulk gasoline terminals on Cabras Island and in Saipan. A 30-day comment period for the proposed decree expired on May 21. 

U.S. Department of Justice Trial Attorney Robert Mullaney has asked the court to enter the consent decree as they believe it is fair, reasonable, consistent with the Clean Air Act, and serves the public interest.
