Schlumberger Lift Solutions Case Settlement
Schlumberger Lift Solutions Case Settles for $2,625
An investigation by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) showed that Schlumberger Lift Solutions (Schlumberger) was in violation of the In-Use Off-Road Diesel-Fueled Fleets Regulation (California Code of Regulations, title 13, section 2449). The violations were first discovered via a self-disclosed statement by Schlumberger and later confirmed during the investigation. CARB has documented that Schlumberger failed to report and label its off-road vehicles within 30 days of acquisition (California Code of Regulations, title 13, section 2449(f) and 2449(g)).
The total penalty assessed in this case was $2,625.00, with a per unit penalty of $125.00. The penalty was discounted based on the fact that this was a self-disclosed violation, and the violator made diligent efforts to comply and to cooperate with the investigation.
Schlumberger agreed to the conditions of the settlement including the total penalty payment going to the Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality, and submission of proof of compliance with the In-Use Off-Road Diesel-Fueled Fleets Regulation within 45 days of the execution of Settlement Agreement. Schlumberger and CARB will continue to execute a compliance plan in order to fully comply with the In-Use Off-Road Regulation.
