BP Banned From New Government Contracts
BP won't be doing any new business with the federal government in the coming months. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced today that the oil giant won't be allowed to sign new contracts with the U.S. government. The temporary suspension comes as a result of a "lack of business integrity" the British company showed in the Big Oozy, according to EPA.
The move stems from the plea agreement BP and the feds reached earlier this month, in which the company agreed to enter guilty pleas to a raft of charges in connection with the Big Oozy.
The ban will keep the company from bidding on new oil leases in the Gulf, which has been big business for the company even in the wake of the new disaster. BP picked up 50 new Gulf leases since 2010, according to the company. The immedate impact was felt by the company this morning, when a new lease sale for oil tracts in the Western Gulf of Mexico was held in the Superdome that they were not allowed to participate.
The British company's main office issued a statement in the wake of the ban saying the move "does not affect any existing contracts the company has with the US government, including those relating to current and ongoing drilling and production operations in the Gulf of Mexico.
The company said the feds are preparing an agreement that would lift the ban, but a draft of the proposal has not yet been sent to their offices.
