Houston-based Amplify Energy Corp. and two of its subsidiaries will plead guilty to violations of the Clean Water Act and pay a criminal penalty of $7.1 million to resolve charges arising from the October, 2021 discharge of approximately 25,000 gallons of crude oil from the San Pedro Bay Pipeline in Long Beach, California.  Defendants overrode multiple lead detection alarms to continue transferring crude oil from offshore facilities for processing, resulting in the leak from a crack in the pipeline.  In addition to the criminal penalty, defendants have agreed to pay approximately $5.8 million to compensate government agencies for response expenses, and implement additional compliance measures.  USAO CD Cal
