In accordance with 28 CFR 50.7, notice is hereby given that on August 20, 2012, a proposed Sixth Amendment To Consent Decree in United States v. Sinclair Wyoming Refining Co., et al., Case No. 08-cv-020-WFD, was lodged with the United States District Court for the District of Wyoming.

The proposed Sixth Amendment To Consent Decree would resolve the United States' and State of Wyoming's claims that the Sinclair Wyoming Refining Company (“SWRC”) and the Sinclair Casper Refining Company (“SCRC”) violated certain provisions of the 2008 Consent Decree in United States v. Sinclair Wyoming Refining Co., et al., Case No. 08-cv-020-WFD. Under the terms of the Sixth Amendment To Consent Decree, SWRC and SCRC will both install additional pollution control equipment to enable compliance with requirements of the 2008 Consent Decree and take other action to offset emissions that resulted from the alleged violations.

The Department of Justice will receive comments relating to the proposed consent decree amendment for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of this publication. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General for the Environment and Natural Resources Division, and either emailed to pubcomment-ees.enrd@usdoj.gov or mailed to P.O.
