This report lists all of the enforcement cases in which Final Orders were issued in a given year, beginning in 2002. The yearly tables include the date the Final Order was issued, the name of the operator involved, the PHMSA Region initiating the enforcement action(s), the total civil penalty assessed, whether a Compliance Order was included, and the PHMSA case number. Final Orders are issued to communicate PHMSA's final determinations as they relate to the alleged violations contained in Notices of Probable Violation. Final Orders may contain assessed civil penalties, Compliance Orders which identify specific corrective actions the operator is to take, or both. Only after PHMSA verifies that all corrective actions specified in Compliance Orders have been satisfactorily completed and/or civil penalties paid is an enforcement case closed. Final Orders are described in 49 CFR 190.213. Compliance Orders are described in 49 CFR 190.213 and 190.217.
