Amplify Energy, the pipeline owner, has suggested that a ship’s anchor may have dragged the pipeline and damaged it
There were reports that the cargo ship Rotterdam Express could have been involved in the spill, but the ship’s owner said the Coast Guard has informed them that they are no longer under investigation.
Though the investigation is ongoing, authorities said that Amplify Energy and anyone else liable for the environmental catastrophe will pay for the cleanup and more.
“They are also liable for economic losses experienced by our citizens and by our small businesses,” Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris said.
