Start Preamble

Notice is hereby given that on April 16, 2010, a proposed Consent Decree in United States v. Mobil Oil Guam, Inc., and Mobil Oil Mariana Islands, Inc., Civil Action No. 10-00006, was lodged with the United States District Court for the District of Guam.

The proposed Consent Decree in this enforcement action against Defendants Mobil Oil Guam, Inc., and Mobil Oil Mariana Islands, Inc., resolves allegations by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in a complaint filed together with the Consent Decree that Defendants violated the Clean Air Act and regulations promulgated thereunder at their bulk gasoline terminals located in Guam and Saipan. The complaint sought injunctive relief and the assessment of civil penalties for violations of the New Source Performance Standards (“NSPS”) for volatile organic liquid storage vessels and bulk gasoline terminals in 40 CFR part 60, subparts A, Kb, and X, and National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (“NESHSAP”) for gasoline distribution facilities in 40 CFR part 63, Subparts A and R. Pursuant to the proposed Consent Decree, Defendants will reduce volatile organic compound and hazardous air pollutant emissions by bringing storage tanks and loading racks at their bulk gasoline terminals into compliance with the NSPS and NESHAP requirements by no later than December 31, 2011. The Consent Decree also requires Defendants to pay a $2,400,000 civil penalty.
