Opal fire penalties went unpaid due to state clerical error

A company that operates a major natural gas hub in southwest Wyoming has yet to pay thousands of dollars in fines imposed for safety violations after a 2014 fire because state regulators failed to send the final bill.

Regulators are investigating why the bill was never sent, but they've determined the company was not at fault, said John Ysebaert, the Department of Workforce Services’ standards and compliance administrator.

“It is clerical and on our end, on my end," Ysebaert said Wednesday. “[The company] has not paid any of the fines, but to be fair they have not been given notice of ‘This is what you owe for all those citations.’ ”

Wyoming regulators do not expect an appeal from Williams Field Services Company, which operates at the Opal plant, because the company already agreed to the final fine amounts in 2014, Ysebaert said.
