05:13 EDTPCGPG&E announces CPUC ALJ recommends $2B penalty for San Bruno explosion
Pacific Gas and Electric said that a penalty being considered by the California Public Utilities Commission, or CPUC, in connection with the 2010 explosion of a natural gas transmission pipeline in San Bruno should be reasonable and take into account precedent and the investments the company has made to promote safety. The CPUC's administrative law judges, or ALJs, released a recommended penalty resulting from the investigations. While the CPUC characterized the penalty as totaling approximately $2B, PG&E believes that the total shareholder impact could reach approximately $4.75B, including the previous $2.7B in estimated costs that shareholders have incurred or are forecast to incur, to improve and enhance the safety of PG&E's natural gas operations. The ultimate amount of costs will depend on the scope and timing of work and other factors, many of which are described in PG&E Corporation's and PG&E's recent SEC reports. It's likely that the CPUC could take a minimum of 45 days to reach a final decision.

15:14 EDTPCGPG&E levied $1.4B safety fine by CPUC
The California Public Utilities Commission issued four decisions by two Administrative Law Judges in connection with its investigations of Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s operations and practices related to gas transmission, including the pipeline rupture in San Bruno, Calif., in 2010, penalizing PG&E $1.4B, which the commission said was the largest safety related penalty ever levied by the CPUC. The penalty consists of $950M to be paid to California’s General Fund, $400M in pipeline improvements that cannot be recovered from customers, called a disallowance, and approximately $50M to be used to implement more than 75 remedies to enhance pipeline safety. The $1.4B penalty, when combined with the amount that the CPUC previously ruled must come from shareholders for expenditures to improve the safe operation of natural gas pipelines, exceeds $2B. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The Fly notes that in a note upgrading PG&E Corporation to Outperform on August 1, Credit Suisse said resolution of the ALJ decision on San Bruno will clear a 4 year regulatory overhang, adding that the firm sees a "potential $2.25B penalty as excessive in any historical context." PRICE ACTION: Shares of PG&E are up 1.1% to $47.01 in afternoon trading.
