Gas developer facing civil fineJun 13, 2014 The Associated Press
CHEYENNE -- The Interior Department office that oversees revenue collection from oil and gas leases announced Thursday it is seeking a $533,520 civil penalty against a gas developer the agency said failed to report production on federal leases in northeast Wyoming.
Interior's Office of Natural Resources Revenue sent a noncompliance notice to Highland, Utah-based CEP M Purchase, LLC, in April 2013. Penalties will accrue until required reports are submitted, according to the office.
In the meantime, the company has a right to request a hearing on the matter.
