The Bay Area Air Quality Management District says the settlement covers 19 violations from 2008 and 2009.

Among the violations the company was cited for failing to take flare-gas samples, inadequate measurement of flare gas flows and inaccurate ground level monitoring of hydrogen sulfide.

Air district executive Jack Broadbent says the district has the responsibility to protect the health of residents around refineries. He says any violations, no matter how minor, are not tolerated.

Phillips 66 spokeswoman Janet Grothe said most of the violations were disclosed by the company to the board and were fixed quickly.
