Suncor Energy Inc. has settled air pollution violations at its Commerce City, Colo., refinery, according to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

Suncor will pay $1 million in cash administrative penalties to the state and $426,705 in stipulated and other cash penalties to the state and the Environmental Protection Agency, the department said. The total settlement value of $9 million includes environmental projects and implementing recommendations from a root cause investigation.

Suncor didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

The department said the settlement "resolves a host of emissions exceedances as well as violations of operating and monitoring requirements that occurred since July 2017," as well as an "operational upset" in December.
