From the Associated Press:
Federal regulators have proposed fines following a natural gas liquids leak that was discovered in March near Parachute in southwest Colorado.
The Daily Sentinel reports the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is seeking fines of $10,200 against Badger Daylighting Corp. and $7,854 against the Williams subsidiary Bargath LLC. OSHA alleges the companies violated hazardous waste operation and emergency response safety standards.
The Williams Cos. Inc. has blamed a faulty pressure gauge for a leak of an estimated 10,000 gallons of hydrocarbons including benzene, with some contamination reaching Parachute Creek.
Williams says Bargath is accused of failing to have a fully developed written program for safety, site control, training and decontamination related to an emergency release of waste. Bargath is working to resolve the OSHA citations.
