Shell Affiliates Pay $900,000 to Resolve Air Violations
Three Shell Oil Company affiliates have agreed to pay $900,000 as part of a settlement with the EPA to resolve Clean Air Act violations, including selling gasoline and diesel fuel that did not conform to federal standards.
Actions by three companies affiliated with Shell — Deer Park Refining Limited Partnership, Motiva Enterprises and Equilon Enterprises, which does business as Shell Oil Products US — are alleged to have resulted in violations of the provisions of the Clean Air Act that ensure the production, testing and sale of high-quality vehicle and engine fuels in the United States.
EPA enforcement actions in fiscal year 2014 required companies to invest more than $9.7 billion to curb pollution and clean up contaminated sites, according to the agency’s annual enforcement and compliance results.
