Chevron allegedly lied about how much natural gas they were producing from the land included in the leases. Company representatives, however, have claimed that the settlement does not mean that Chevron is admitting any wrongdoing. They claim that the settlement is to merely end the legal costs of defending themselves for over thirteen years. A whopping total of $12.3 million will go to the estate of Harrold Wright, the whistleblower in the case. The rest of the settlement money will be paid to the federal government and the Indian nations from which the land was leased.
