The U.S. government fined Enbridge $1.8 million in a settlement stemming from the company’s alleged failure to meet pipeline inspection deadlines, court documents say.

The company denies the claims and will settle without admitting guilt, according to a stipulation filed in federal court in Michigan on Wednesday.

The fine follows a $176 million settlement and stipulations ordered in 2016 following a pipeline rupture in Michigan in 2010 that spilled hundreds of thousands of gallons of oil.

The inspections the government said “do not meet the requirements” included several Minnesota stretches of Enbridge’s Line 2, Line 3 and Line 4, according to court filings. The company has six pipelines that traverse Minnesota between Alberta and a terminal in Superior.
