In the wake of a fire at an Exxon Mobil Corp. facility, a number of engines at the company’s Dallas facility have been leaking exhaust manifold oil.
The problem is being addressed, but a new leak in the plant could leave the company with a long-term problem.
The leak was discovered at a fuel line where the company was upgrading the fuel supply in late October.
Exxon Mobil is still awaiting the results of a water test at the plant.
The company is now looking into whether there was a water leak in a nearby field, according to Exxon Mobil.
“Exxon Mobil is taking the issue seriously and working closely with state regulators to determine the cause,” Exxon Mobil said in a statement.
The spill was discovered on October 16, 2016, according the Dallas Fire Department.
The cause of the leak is under investigation.
The Dallas fire department is investigating the incident.
