Oil Company Pays $1.7 Million for Spill Containment Violations

A large Alaska oil company has paid more than $1.7 million for spill containment violations. An October 2007 inspection revealed the company was operating storage tanks and truck-loading facilities without large enough secondary spill containment to prevent oil from seeping into the ground. The company has corrected most of the deficiencies, with the remainder to be addressed according to a schedule negotiated with the state.
