Title 52 - Oil & Gas Code

§52-475. Penalty for violations - Civil actions.


Any person, association of persons, or corporation who, as purchaser thereof, shall knowingly fail or refuse to so measure, calculate or account for any such gas so purchased, shall be subject to a penalty of not less than Ten Dollars ($10.00) nor more than Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00) for each offense recoverable in the name of the state in any district court in Oklahoma County, wherein service may be had by the Corporation Commission, and each day of such violation shall constitute a separate offense. But it shall be a defense to any claim for such penalty that the Corporation Commission has not made and published the findings provided for in Section 3a, as to the particular field in question.

Nothing herein shall prevent an aggrieved party from maintaining a civil suit for damages in the county or counties in which the gas is produced.
