Exxon Mobil (XOM) Corporation is a global oil and natural gas company. Founded in 1870 and headquartered in Irving Texas, Exxon Mobil explores for and produces crude oil and natural gas, manufacture and markets commodity petrochemicals, and transports and sells crude oil, natural gas, and petroleum.
Reportedly, as per a team of American and Dutch scientists an Exxon Mobil Corp. natural gas well in Ohio discharged more methane into the atmosphere during a blowout in 2018 in comparison to what some countries do in a year.
“We deeply regret the event occurred and have instituted systematic well design and monitoring procedures to prevent it from happening again,” “We are eager to learn more, and our scientists are currently reviewing the study and its assumptions.“, Exxon responded.
The research discovered from satellite data confirmed that on Feb. 15, 2018, a well explosion in Belmont county released the greenhouse gas at a rate of about 80 tons/hour that lasted for roughly 20 days. Methane being 84 times more harmful than carbon dioxide, causes major environmental damage. Satellites are beginning to track large accidental emissions that have remained undetected till now.
The scientists stated in a study , “Our work demonstrates the strength and effectiveness of routine satellite measurements in detecting and quantifying greenhouse gas emission from unpredictable events. In this specific case, the magnitude of a relatively unknown yet extremely large accidental leakage was revealed.”
