Oil Spill Response, Prevention, and Administration Fees

The program was established to collect a fee based on the movement of crude oil into this state via marine terminal and/or pipeline (where the pipeline crosses under, across, or through marine waters).

The program also assesses a fee on petroleum products received from outside this state at a marine terminal. The terminal operator or pipeline operator is required to collect the fee from the owner of the product and remit the fees to the Board of Equalization.
