Phillips 66 Agrees To Pay Almost $100K For Air Quality Violations

May 16, 2018 14:00 pm · 13 comments

Phillips 66 has agreed to pay nearly $100,000 to settle air quality violations at its refinery in the unincorporated Contra Costa County community of Rodeo, officials with the Bay Area Air Quality Management District said this week.

The air district settled a group of 13 notices for violations that occurred in 2015. The amount of the settlement was $99,400.

The notices addressed brief violations of emissions limits, venting of odorous gases that did not result in a public nuisance, a failed accuracy test of a monitoring system and violations of a leak detection and repair program or minor administrative violations.

All the violations have been corrected, the district said.

(Not this company)
Do not be surprised when an OLD oil company quits the Bay Area.

A drop in the barrel.

I just looked up Phillips 66 net worth $39.9 Billion. That $100K fine is like a drop in a bucket or maybe a drop in a barrel to them.

Someday all these jerks with their ‘zero pollution’ cars will be dead as the planet continues to suffer from the batteries they left behind in the name of saving the planet.

Nice Tesla Jack.

Just love reading comments from the ignorant about matters far beyond their comprehension!

You’re confusing “zero emission” with “zero pollution.” Good thing that scientists are working to find ways to recycle the batteries.

$100K? So about .0001 on the penny to them when you look at net worth. No wonder these companies continue to violate.

Good to see all violations we’re corrected. That’s what counts. The 100K can be now be used to help the poor…haha

Where does the fine money go, what is it then spent on?

The fines are levied by BAAQMD. “All settlement funds will be used to fund Air District activities such as the inspection and enforcement activities that led to this settlement.”
