Shell Oil Co., et al., Civil Action No. 4:13-cv-2009. In the Complaint, the United States alleges that Shell Oil Co. and two of its affiliated partnerships (‘‘Shell’’) violated, at their petroleum refinery and chemical plant in Deer Park, Texas, various provisions of the Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7401 et seq.; the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, 42 U.S.C. 9609(c) and 9613(b); and the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act, 42 U.S.C. 11045(b)(3). Under the consent decree, Shell will implement innovative pollution control technologies to reduce emissions of sulfur dioxide, volatile organic compounds (‘‘VOCs’’), and hazardous air pollutants from the twelve flares it operates at its Deer Park facility. Shell has agreed to limit the waste gas it sends to its flares by installing and/or operating systems that will recover and recycle waste gas back into plant processes (i.e., flare gas recovery) and Shell has agreed to an overall ‘‘cap’’ on the volume of waste gas it flares. For waste gas that is flared, Shell will operate numerous monitoring systems and comply with several operating parameters to ensure that the flares adequately combust the gases. In addition, at a cost of between $15 and $60 million, Shell will undertake numerous activities at its wastewater treatment plant, its tanks, and its benzene extraction unit to reduce VOC emissions and mitigate the effect of alleged past excess VOC emissions. Shell also will install a $1 million stateof-the-art monitor at its fenceline to record benzene emissions and make the PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 42547 results available to the public, as well as spend $200,000 to retrofit publiclyowned diesel vehicles in the vicinity of the plant to reduce emissions.
