DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE
Notice of Lodging of Proposed
Consent Decree Under the Clean Water
Act
On September 6, 2023, the
Department of Justice lodged a proposed
Consent Decree with the United States
District Court for the Southern District
of Texas in United States v. Transocean
Offshore Deepwater Drilling Inc., Civil
Case No. 4:23–cv–03317 (S.D. Tex.).
In this action, the United States, on
behalf of the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency, filed a complaint
alleging that Transocean Offshore
Deepwater Drilling Inc. (‘‘Defendant’’)
violated the Clean Water Act (‘‘CWA’’),
33 U.S.C. 1251, et seq. by discharging
without first obtaining coverage under
the National Pollutant Discharge
Elimination System General Permit for
New and Existing Sources and New
Dischargers in the Offshore Subcategory
of the Oil and Gas Extraction Point
Source Category for the Western and
Central Portion of the Outer Continental
Shelf of the Gulf of Mexico
(GMG290000) (the ‘‘General Permit’’),
violating terms and conditions of the
General Permit, and exceeding effluent
limitations prescribed by the General
Permit. The complaint seeks an Order
enjoining Defendant from further
violating the CWA and the General
Permit and requiring Defendant to pay
a civil penalty.
Under the proposed settlement,
Defendant agrees to pay a civil penalty
of $507,000 and to develop and
implement a compliance system to
ensure future compliance with the CWA
and the General Permit. The compliance
system will be subject to review by a
third-party verifier.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: State
Workforce Agencies (SWAs) are
required by Federal regulations at 20

(ES) regulations at § 653.501(a), (b), (c)
and (d) enumerate the contents of these

record retention for Form ETA–790 is

Federal Register on April 10, 2023 (88

of information, and the public is

valid OMB Control Number. In addition,
notwithstanding any other provisions of
law, no person shall generally be subject
to penalty for failing to comply with a
collection of information that does not
display a valid OMB Control Number.
