Exxon Mobil Corp will pay $25 million as part of a settlement to clean up a decades-old oil spill in New York City, the state’s attorney general said on Wednesday.

The settlement, filed in U.S. district court in Brooklyn, requires Exxon to conduct a comprehensive cleanup of its Greenpoint facility in Brooklyn, which includes oil floating on top of the water table and contaminated groundwater and soil.
