The U.S. government is close to resolving air pollution allegations against Exxon Mobil Corp. and may announce an agreement in coming days, according to people familiar with the situation.

Officials are also poised to settle a second case involving air pollution violations with Colorado-based PDC Energy Inc., after its storage tanks were found to be leaking smog-forming compounds.
