EPA And DOI Raid Oil Company’s Offices After It Spilled Fewer Than 3 Barrels Of Oil

It is not just Trump that the government has raided with trumped-up charges

The EPA and DOI raid an oil company’s offices after its well spills fewer than three barrels of oil

The Daily Caller points out the case of QuarterNorth Energy where their offices were raided for a leak of less than three barrels of oil.

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Interior Department (DOI) agents searched the Louisiana office of QuarterNorth Energy, an oil company, for documents relating to an oil leak that spilled two and a half barrels of oil, Bloomberg reported Wednesday.

EPA and DOI agents searched the company’s office in Lafayette for documents detailing a January 2022 offshore oil leak that spilled 2.5 barrels or 107 gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, according to Bloomberg, who cited sources familiar with the situation. The incident occurred when equipment got stuck in a well on QuarterNorth’s production platform, which exacerbated a preexisting leak, according to a report produced by the DOI’s Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, which monitors offshore oil and gas producers.

“It’s harassment … they are sending a message to oil and gas producers,” Steve Milloy, a member of former President Donald Trump’s EPA transition team, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Spills are accidental and this one sounds really trivial… yet they want to treat it as a crime for political reasons.”

The well was leaking since Jan. 11, 2021, and was previously managed by QuarterNorth’s now-defunct predecessor, Fieldwood Energy, until late October, according to the bureau’s report.

“I can see them fining companies for them or making them clean them up, but raiding them is over the top,” Milloy stated.

Biden hasn’t made a point through this raid, they have just proven themselves a bully

I can almost guarantee you that the wells administered by the Ukrainian company that employed Hunter each spilled more effluent. The reason I say this is that Ukraine, Russia, and all of the countries of the immediate area do not have the standards in drilling that we do.

But Joe’s DOI and EPA jump on this company with both feet.
