How guilty is BP?

BBC NEWS

Robert Peston12:15 UK time, Friday, 3 September 2010

How important will be BP’s report into the causes of the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster, which is due to be published in the coming week or so?

Well it certainly won’t be the last word on the subject: BP faces official investigations and court cases galore on how 11 rig workers lost their lives in April and why so much oil leaked into the Gulf of Mexico.

And some will refuse to believe any analysis by BP, on the basis that it can’t help but be tendentious. read more

BP says oil spill cost up to $8bn

BBC NEWS

3 September 2010 BP says the cost of its Gulf of Mexico oil spill has risen to $8bn (£5.2bn) – a rise of more than $2bn in the last month alone.

The company said it had paid out about $399m in claims to those affected by the spill.

Last week, responsibilty for the claims was transfered to the Gulf Coast Claims Facility (GCCF), which has so far paid out a total of $38.5m.

Plans to permanently seal the well were also progressing well, BP said.

The final sealing of the well is now expected to be completed later this month.

BP said the capping stack placed on top of the well in July was removed on Thursday.

This will allow the failed blow-out preventer from the Deep Water Horizon rig to be removed, and a new blow-out preventer put in place. read more

BP Says Limits on Drilling Imperil Oil Spill Payouts

THE NEW YORK TIMES

By CLIFFORD KRAUSS and JOHN M. BRODER

A version of this article appeared in print on September 3, 2010, on page A1 of the New York edition.

BP is warning Congress that if lawmakers pass legislation that bars the company from getting new offshore drilling permits, it may not have the money to pay for all the damages caused by its oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The company says a ban would also imperil the ambitious Gulf Coast restoration efforts that officials want the company to voluntarily support. read more
