Notice is hereby given that on June 27, 2008, a proposed Consent Decree in United States and State of Oklahoma v. Albert Investment, et al., Civil Action No. 5:08-cv-637, was lodged with the United States District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma.

In this action the United States, on behalf of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”), sought to recover from certain parties response costs that it incurred in response to releases and threatened releases of hazardous substances from the Double Eagle Refinery Superfund Site (the “Site”) located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The proposed Consent Decree resolves claims alleged by the United States, on behalf of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”), and the United States Department of the Interior (“DOI”), under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (“CERCLA”), 42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq. The proposed Consent Decree provides that the Settling Defendants, which sent waste oil containing hazardous substances to the Site for disposal, will pay the United States and the State of Oklahoma approximately $6.48 million in response costs and natural resource damages.
