U.S. Department of Justice Key Developments

CONSOL Energy Inc. to Pay $3 Million Penalty for Water Act Violations

Consol Energy Inc. agreed to pay a $3 million penalty for violations of the Clean Water Act five years ago as part of a settlement with federal and state agencies. The company has also agreed to manage and monitor mining wastewater from its Bailey Mine Complex in southwestern Pennsylvania to prevent it from running into the Ohio River and its tributaries. The settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection caps a process that began in April 2011 when federal regulators starting looking at the company's water discharges in Pennsylvania. The government's complaint said Consol chronically exceeded osmotic pressure and other limits in its Clean Water Act discharge permits which protect aquatic life from total dissolved solids.

Enbridge Energy Partners to Pay $61 Million Penalty for 2010 Michigan Oil Spill

Enbridge Energy Partners announced to pay a $61 million penalty for the costliest inland oil spill in U.S. history under an agreement with federal officials. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Justice announced the settlement on July 20, 2016 over a 2010 pipeline rupture near Marshall, Michigan, that released an estimated 843,000 gallons of crude oil. A nearly 40-mile stretch of the Kalamazoo River was polluted as shoreline residents fled their homes. The deal requires measures to prevent future spills, detect leaks and prepare for emergencies across Enbridge's Lakehead network, a web of 14 pipelines extending more than 2,000 miles across seven states.

Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics Reaches Settlement with US Department of Justice

Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL, owned 50% by WWASA) and EUKOR Car Carriers (owned 40% by WWASA), have been two of several shipping companies under investigation by the Department of Justice (DOJ) for alleged anti-competitive behaviour in the car carrying industry. The investigation revealed instances of conduct contrary to company policy and in breach of US competition laws. Accordingly, WWL has decided to reach a settlement with the DOJ, covering activities from February 2000 to September 2012. By this agreement, the company agrees to pay USD 98.9 million in fines (USD 49.5 million accounts for WWASA's share) and to provide continued support to the DOJ investigation. The settlement also closes the DOJ investigation into EUKOR Car Carriers. EUKOR Car Carriers will not receive a fine.
