Inletkeeper Notice of Intent to Sue Hilcorp for Clean Water Act Violations in Cook Inlet

During Hilcorp’s relatively short tenure in Alaska, it has enjoyed considerable tax credits and reaped sizable profits at a time when Alaska is in fiscal crisis. Unfortunately, Hilcorp’s compliance record has been unsatisfactory, leading the Alaska Oil & Gas Conservation Commission to note “[t]he disregard for regulatory compliance is endemic to Hilcorp’s approach to its Alaska operations….” Hilcorp’s position on social responsibility states “[o]ur commitment to environmental and social responsibility is unwavering,“ and its core values include “Integrity–Do the Right Thing“ and “Urgency—Act Today, Not Tomorrow.” If Hilcorp imparts any meaning to these words, it will immediately stop the ongoing violations of the Clean Water Act cited above, and take definitive action to ensure similar problems do not develop regarding other Hilcorp assets in Cook Inlet in the future.
