North American Power Group Limited, along with its owner Michael Ruffatto, have agreed to pay $14.4 million as a result of allegations that they submitted false claims under an agreement with the DOE to carry out data collection and carbon sequestration projects at a Wyoming energy site.  Rather than seek reimbursement for work done, as they claimed, the defendants had submitted invoices reflecting personal expenses like travel, jewelry, and car payments.  Ruffatto was also sentenced to 18 months in prison for his role in the scheme.  DOJ; USAO WDPA
