The spill resulted in severe damage to the local environment and wildlife and eventually the company would be convicted of eight misdemeanors and a felony in California. In this settlement, Plains’s General Partner, PAA GP LLC, has agreed to substantial therapeutic relief to strengthen the Company’s safety culture and regulatory compliance, including the

(1) maintenance of a Health, Safety, Environmental and Sustainability (“HSES”) Committee in its Board of Directors for at least six years,

(2) establishing a mechanism for employees to submit anonymous messages to the HSES committee, and

(3) the HSES having authority to investigate such submissions as well as retain outside counsel and subject matter experts.
