Chevron fined $284K for pollution law violations

Chevron admitted no liability or guilt as part of the settlement and disputed the EPA's assertion that it caused unexpected pollution. The consent decree was filed in U.S. District Court in Salt Lake City.

"The refinery did not exceed its permit limits" for nitrogen oxide emissions, Chevron spokesman Greg Hardy told The Salt Lake Tribune.

Utah's top air-quality official, Bryce Bird, said Chevron's lower emissions "certainly will help" Utah try to achieve federal air-quality standards in a plan due later this year.
