NEW YORK, July 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Energy Transfer LP (“”Energy Transfer or the “Company”) ET. Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at email@example.com or 888-476-6529, ext. 7980.
The investigation concerns whether Energy Transfer and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On August 8, 2019, Energy Transfer filed its quarterly report on Form 10-Q with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, reporting the Partnership’s financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019 (the “2Q19 10-Q”). The 2Q19 10-Q disclosed that two years earlier, in mid-2017 Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”) Enforcement Staff began a non-public formal investigation “regarding allegations that diesel fuel may have been included in the drilling mud at the Tuscarawas River HDD.” On this news, Energy Transfer’s stock price fell $0.65 per share, or 4.6%, over the following two trading days, to close at $13.38 per share on August 12, 2019. Then, on December 16, 2021, FERC publicly issued to Energy Transfer an Order To Show Cause And Notice of Proposed Penalty, which proposed a $40 million fine for the inadvertent release incident.
On this news, the price of Energy Transfer shares declined $0.24, or 2.8% over the course of two trading days, to close at $8.25 per share on December 20, 2021.
