Improper Receipt of Arizona Environmental Cleanup Funds

Chevron Corporation paid $14 million to settle claims that it improperly received monies from an Arizona state fund to clean up underground storage tank contamination. The state alleged that Chevron had insurance and in some instances obtained proceeds from both the state fund and the insurance companies for the same contamination. In other instances Chevron allegedly failed to pursue its own insurance claims and improperly relied solely on the state fund. Chevron admitted no liability but agreed to reimburse the state for a majority of the monies received from the state fund.
