Anadarko Petroleum Corp ordered to pay $159.5 mln fine for 2010 Gulf spill - Reuters
Tuesday, 1 Dec 2015 01:13pm EST 

Anadarko Petroleum Corp:A federal judge ordered Anadarko Petroleum Corp APC.N to pay a $159.5 million civil fine reflecting its stake in the Gulf of Mexico well where a 2010 blowout caused the largest U.S. offshore oil spill - RTRS.In a decision on Monday, U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier in New Orleans said Anadarko was not at fault for the spill. - RTRS.But he said the company's 25 percent ownership stake in the Macondo well made it part of the "polluting enterprise" responsible for the April 20, 2010, disaster, which included the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig and killed 11 workers. - RTRS.The penalty equates to $50 per barrel of oil spilled, well below the maximum $1,100 per barrel, or $3.51 billion, penalty that Barbier could have imposed under the Clean Water Act. - RTRS.A $159.5 million fine "strikes the appropriate balance between Anadarko's lack of culpability and the extreme seriousness of this spill," Barbier wrote in a 34-page decision. - RTRS.The payout may resolve the last major legal uncertainty that Anadarko, which is based in The Woodlands, Texas, faced over the spill. - RTRS.  Full Article
