ConocoPhillips fined $10K for pollution goof

The ConocoPhillips Co., which operates a chemical manufacturing plant in Old Ocean, Texas, was fined $10,000 on Wednesday by state regulators for releasing many thousands of pounds of sulfur dioxide and other stuff in September.

The state cited "operator error" in the goof, according to the public record.

There is no record of an apology or a request for a "do over" in any of the documents.
