SEI Fuel Services, Inc. Settlement 2
SEI Fuel Services, Inc. Case Settles for $40,500
In September 2014, SEI Fuel Services, Inc. (SEI) agreed to penalties from violations of the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting Regulation. SEI, based in Texas, supplies transportation fuels subject to Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting Regulation, Cal. Code of Regulations, title 17, §95100 et seq. (MRR). SEI took over the fuel distribution from another company beginning in 2012, and had not received any outreach information from ARB during 2010 and 2011, and did not know that it needed to report fuel volumes/emissions. Significantly, SEI came forward to ARB, and upon learning of its reporting duty SEI reported promptly. SEI paid a penalty of $40,500, based on $500 per day x 81 days late. In addition to the penalty, SEI submitted a monitoring plan that includes additional procedures to avoid future late reporting.
