EPA Issues Administrative Order to Oklahoma Oil Field Producer!
Contact: Dave Bary at 214-665-2200 or

In October this year, an EPA inspection of TEC (Thomas Exploration Company), of Tulsa discovered an unauthorized discharge of oil field brine into a tributary of the Deep Fork River.

Today TEC has been issued a cease and desist order for violating the federal Clean Water Act. They are now required to remove the contaminated areas of the Deep Fork River tributary. They have 30 days to do the clean up, and they must file a report showing they have complied with all aspects of the administrative order.
