Kern Oil threatens EPA with lawsuit over failed response to hardship waiver request

February 27, 2019 |

In Washington, Reuters reports that Kern Oil sent a letter to the Acting Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency on February 7 threatening to sue the agency after it failed to respond to its small refinery hardship waiver request within the 90 days prescribed by law. The California refinery applied for the waiver in July 2018 in an effort to waive its 2017 compliance requirements under the Renewable Fuel Standard but has yet to receive a response. It said in the letter that it prefers to have the response than suing the acting administrator and the agency in US District Court.
