Mobil agrees to repay the government $32.2 million for underpaid royalties

Mobil Oil and several affiliate companies have agreed to pay $32.2 million to resolve False Claims Act violation allegations. According to the Department of Justice, Mobil Natural Gas Inc., Mobil Exploration & Producing U.S. Inc. and their affiliates “knowingly underpaid royalties” owed from the production of natural gas on American Indian and Federal lands. The Justice Department alleges that from March 1, 1988 to Nov. 30, 1999, the Mobil companies underpaid multiple Native American tribes and the United States due to the systematic understating of the produced natural gas’ value.
