Summary of Cases Involving Civil Penalties

Civil Penalty Cases Resolved by the U.S. Department of Justice

In some circumstances, PHMSA may refer a pipeline safety enforcement case to the Department of Justice for resolution. Because these cases are not settled through PHMSA‘s administrative enforcement process, they are not reflected in the data on the Civil Penalties Resolved Report on this web site.

Civil penalty cases resolved by the Department of Justice are listed below.
