EXCERPT
Chevron was fined $5.4 million due to an alleged "breach of its environmental license" as it did not have the necessary equipment and was slow to respond when the leak was detected, the agency announced on Saturday on its website.

Chevron said in an e-mailed statement it implemented its emergency plan in a "timely manner."

"The plan was deployed rapidly and standard procedures were quickly carried out in order to stem the source of the leak,'' the statement said.

MY TAKE

Rex Tillerson CEO Exxon Mobil created the MWCC for the answer to control blow outs after the BP giant spill. It was a con then but our Federal Government bought in. Since BIG OIL signed off on the MWCC plan Conoco Philips has been run out of China, Chevron is on the outs in Brazil and Shell is fighting a blow out in our Gulf of Mexico close to the BP disaster zone.

We must understand and be doubtful of believing anything that BIG OIL circulates as the TRUTH.
