Brazil fines Chevron $5.4m for oil spill
Source: BBC

Brazil has fined US oil giant Chevron $5.4m (3.5m) for breach of its environmental licence when it tackled an oil spill in November.

Brazil's Ibama environmental agency said Chevron lacked the necessary equipment and was slow to respond.

Ibama had already fined Chevron $28m for causing the spill off the coast of Rio de Janeiro.

Chevron is also facing an $11bn lawsuit over the spill of about 3,000 barrels of crude oil at the Frade field.
