BP Succeeds at Pushing Back Against U.S. Demands

'After the high-profile meeting of administration and BP officials on Wednesday, it was in the interest of neither to discuss such details.' BP Succeeds at Pushing Back Against U.S. Demands 21 Jun 2010 BP PLC, despite being put under pressure by the U.S. government to pay for the oil-spill aftermath, has succeeded in pushing back on two White House proposals it considered unreasonable, even as it made big concessions, said officials familiar with the matter. BP last week agreed to hand over $20 billion—to cover spill victims such as fishermen and hotel workers who lost wages, and to pay for the cleanup costs... But BP successfully argued it shouldn't be liable for most of the broader economic distress caused by the president's six-month moratorium on deep-water drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.
