Wyoming's environmental regulator has hit a handful of oil and gas operators with citations for air pollution, including one company previously singled out by some for its gas flaring practices.

The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality citations, issued last week to four companies, mostly stem from December inspections that found uncontrolled emissions from wells and inaccurate records tracking pollutants, among other violations.

In one case, a gas production plant emitted hundreds of tons of pollutants into the air for nearly a year before its operator reported itself to the DEQ and applied for a state air quality permit.
