A $925,000 settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit about whether Spess Oil Company, Equal Energy US, Inc., and Fairfield Oil & Gas Corp. (hereafter, “Settling Defendants”) operated wastewater disposal wells that allegedly contributed to causing the earthquakes near Prague, Oklahoma and occurring within the Settlement Class Period. The settlement resolves any and all claims alleged to arise against the Settling Defendants, from earthquakes up to the Effective Date with epicenters within a 15 mile radius of Prague, Oklahoma, including, but not limited to the earthquakes occurring between November 5th and 8th, of 2011. The Settling Defendants dispute and deny all of the allegations made by the Plaintiffs.

You may be eligible to participate in the proposed settlement, if it is finally approved, if you owned or have had an interest in residential or business real estate properties in Lincoln, Payne, Logan, Oklahoma, Cleveland, Pottawatomie, Seminole, Okfuskee, and Creek counties in Oklahoma from November 5, 2011 through November 16, 2018, and suffered earthquake damages from earthquakes up to November 16, 2018 with epicenters within a 15 mile radius of Prague, Oklahoma, including but not limited to those occurring between November 5th and 8th, of 2011.

The settlement will provide benefits to those who qualify. You will need to file a Claim Form to receive benefits from the settlement.
