WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - The Williams County Commission has agreed to reduce a $29.6 million crew camp fine against an oil services company to $1.9 million, but the company isn’t satisfied.

The commission levied the fine against Western Petroleum LLC and its parent company Pilot Logistics for alleged permit violations at a crew camp.

County Planning Director Ray Pacheco tells the Williston Herald (https://bit.ly/1nlqgRS ) that the reason for the reduced amount is that the county wanted to come up with a reasonable fine but still charge an appropriate amount.

Company officials say the new amount is still too high. They could take it to court, and County Commissioner David Montgomery says he expects the matter to end up there.
