BP Exploration & Production Inc. Key Developments

The Aviation Authority Files Lawsuits Against BP Exploration & Production Inc

The aviation authority is one of 83 plaintiffs that have filed lawsuits against BP Exploration & Production Inc. in the U.S. District Court, Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division. The aviation authority, which oversees Tampa International Airport and three general aviation airfields, has not received funds from its claim earlier this year. TAMPA The Hillsborough County Aviation Authority, which in January sought $28 million from BP for lost business revenue resulting from the April 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, is suing BP in federal court for damages to be determined at trial.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Temporarily Suspends Bp Exploration & Production and Bp plc from New Contracts with the Federal Government

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that it has temporarily suspended BP Exploration & Production Inc., BP plc and named affiliated companies (BP) from new contracts with the federal government. EPA is taking this action due to BP's lack of business integrity as demonstrated by the company's conduct with regard to the Deepwater Horizon blowout, explosion, oil spill, and response, as reflected by the filing of a criminal information. On November 15, 2012, BP agreed to plead guilty to eleven counts of Misconduct or Neglect of Ship Officers, one count of Obstruction of Congress, one misdemeanor count of a violation of the Clean Water Act, and one misdemeanor count of a violation of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, all arising from its conduct leading to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster that killed 11 people and caused the largest environmental disaster in U.S. history. For the Deepwater Horizon investigation, EPA was designated as the lead agency for suspension and debarment actions. Federal executive branch agencies take these actions to ensure the integrity of Federal programs by conducting business only with responsible individuals or companies. Suspensions are a standard practice when a responsibility question is raised by action in a criminal case. The BP suspension will temporarily prevent the company and the named affiliates from getting new federal government contracts, grants or other covered transactions until the company can provide sufficient evidence to EPA demonstrating that it meets Federal business standards. The suspension does not affect existing agreements BP may have with the government.
