BP Pleads Guilty and is Suspended From US Federal Contracts


WASHINGTON—BP is being temporarily suspended from new contracts with the U.S. government, the Environmental Protection Agency says.

Two weeks ago, BP pleaded guilty to charges involving the deaths of 11 workers on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, which exploded and sank in April 2010, setting off the nation’s largest offshore oil spill.

BP will also plead guilty to lying to Congress about how much oil was spewing from the blown-out Macondo well.

The agency said the suspension is 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.”
