Sites contaminated by Tronox and its predecessors, which were not owned by Tronox during or before the bankruptcy, also received bankruptcy funds. In addition, a portion of the $270 million in preliminary cash responded to various government requests regarding past costs, damage to natural resources and penalties related to clean and non-possessed Tronox sites. The initial funding levels and Anadarko Litigation percentages for each site, which combine government-separate collections for a given site, are listed in the table below in alphabetical order by the state where the sites are located. As part of the bankruptcy comparison, the governments and trusts described below received: in this case, the trial was launched on April 11, 2018. The applicants claim that the claims were not filed until July 7, 2014 at the earliest (the date on which objections are filed against the bankruptcy court`s report recommending that the district court authorize the settlement of the claims fraudulent transfers), on the theory that damages are a critical element of such an action and on the basis of the assertion that the Avoca claimants were not able to assess the amount of the damage until after the expiry of the deadline for authorizing fraudulent transfers. The comparison has expired. Anadarko said in a statement that it would account for a net tax benefit of $550 million from the agreement. “This settlement agreement with the Litigation Trust and the U.S. government eliminates the uncertainty created by this dispute,” said Al Walker, Anadarko`s ceo. Tronox`s environmental commitments were resolved under the 2011 insolvency regime, in part through the creation of five environmental defence funds and a dispute settlement fund. The bankruptcy regime provided for the creation of five separate trusts to address the many sites owned by Tronox at the beginning of the bankruptcy proceedings, which are no longer operating facilities (with the exception of the Henderson plant in Nevada and part of the Savannah facility in Georgia, which have been described below).
The five ERTs are as follows: the directors chosen by Tronox for each ERT have been assigned by the Court to manage trusts and control the reclamation of the site under the control of a leading government authority. The five ERTs are subject to separate trust contracts. The comparison with Anadarko is the largest environmental enforcement regime ever adopted by the Department of Justice, even larger than its advocacy with BP for its massive oil spill in the Gulf in 2010, which resulted in $4 billion in fines for the British company.
