Tidelands Oil Production Company Case Settles for $10,000.00

This page last reviewed June 4th, 2013.

In its greenhouse gas emissions data report for the year 2011, its first such report, Tidelands failed to make certain measurements to the required level of accuracy, in violation of the Regulation for the Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gas Emissions, California Code of Regulations, title 17, section 95100 et seq. The report received an adverse verification statement, and was ultimately determined to have over-reported emissions by a small margin. Tidelands cooperated with ARB, allowing the calculations to be corrected. To resolve the matter, Tidelands agreed to update its Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Plan, and to pay a penalty of $10,000.
