Texas regulators issue few fines for Eagle Ford pollution

Texas air regulators fined 11 oil and pipeline companies for pollution violations in the fast-growing Eagle Ford Shale field in the last three years. An additional 188 operators were allowed to fix their violations without paying a fine, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality said. TCEQ says that its system is designed to protect public health without stifling industry and that the oil industry in the Eagle Ford Shale doesn't "significantly impact air quality or pose a threat to human health."
