Atlantic Richfield ordered to pay $29 mln for Superfund cleanup

Atlantic Richfield, part of British oil giant BP, has been ordered to pay nearly $29 million to Arizona mining company Asarco to cover part of the $114 million Asarco spent to clean up a Montana Superfund site formerly used by both companies.
