Tesoro agrees to payment to settle air pollution charges

Tesoro Corp. and two subsidiaries agreed to pay $1.1 million to resolve claims that they violated the federal Clean Air Act, the US Environmental Protection Agency said on May 30.

It alleged in its complaint that Tesoro and subsidiaries Tesoro Refining & Marketing Co. LLC and Tesoro Alaska Co. did not meet record-keeping, reporting, sampling, and testing requirements at refineries in Salt Lake City, Utah; Mandan, ND; Anacortes, Wash.; and Kenai, Alas.

EPA said Tesoro will be required to implement an environmental compliance and auditing plan which is designed to prevent future violations and ensure compliance with EPA’s fuels regulations under the settlement.

The consent decree is subject to a 30-day public comment period and final court approval, it noted.
