ExxonMobil has deployed substantial resources and is making significant progress in cleaning up the petroleum contamination under a portion of Greenpoint.2022 Progress update
While surface oil spills can often be cleaned up quickly and efficiently using absorbent materials and vacuums, underground accumulations of petroleum product – such as the one in Greenpoint – are typically more difficult to reach and take much longer to recover.
ExxonMobil’s goal is to remediate the petroleum contamination stemming from our historical operations in Greenpoint as quickly and safely as possible. This includes recovery of product, treatment of water, and monitoring and addressing soil vapors.
