Kansas refinery to pay air-quality penalty

Coffeyville Resources Refining & Marketing has agreed to pay a $300,000 civil penalty to settle alleged violations of federal air-quality requirements at its 115,000-b/d refinery at Coffeyville, Kan.

Under a consent decree lodged in the US District Court in Wichita, the company also will perform a series of audits and reviews of its procedures for managing risks of accidental release of harmful substances into the air.

The agreement settles allegations by the Environmental Protection Agency of deficiencies in a risk-management program required by the Clean Air Act.

It’s the company’s third environmental settlement since 2012, according EPA Region 7.

The new settlement is subject to a 30-day public comment period and approval by the federal court.
