ExxonMobil Pipeline Co. to Pay $1.4 Million to Settle Alleged Clean Water Act Violation

By Anna Prior Exxon Mobil Corp.'s (XOM) pipeline company has agreed to pay a civil penalty of about $1.4 million to settle an alleged violation of the Clean Water Act, the Department of Justice and Environmental Protection Agency said Tuesday. The alleged violation stems from a 2012 crude oil spill from the company's "North Line" pipeline near Torbert, La., the agencies said. A representative for Exxon Mobil didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. The U.S.'s complaint alleges that ExxonMobil Pipeline Co. discharged at least 2,800 barrels of crude oil, which spilled into the surrounding area and flowed into an unnamed tributary connected to Bayou Cholpe. The $1.4 million penalty is in addition to the costs incurred by ExxonMobil to respond to the oil spill and to replace the segment of ruptured pipelines, the Justice Department and EPA said, adding that the company is completing cleanup actions. "Oil spills into our nation's waters endanger public health and the environment and warrant concerted enforcement efforts," said Sam Hirsch, acting assistant attorney general for the Justice Department's Environment and Natural Resources Division. "Today's settlement achieves a just result and furthers our enforcement mission." Write to Anna Prior at anna.prior@wsj.com Subscribe to WSJ: http://online.wsj.com?mod=djnwires
