The Obama administration today sent a fourth bill to BP Exploration & Production and BP Corporation North America and other responsible parties, which you can view HERE.
Today’s charge: $99,661,359.34, for response and recovery operations relating to the BP/Deepwater Horizon oil spill, including expenses associated with more than two dozen federal and state agencies responding to the spill.
“Payment should be made by check or money order payable to the U.S. Coast Guard,” the bill says.
BP and the other parties — Anadarko E&P Company, LP: Anadarko Petroleum Corporation; MOEX Offshore and Transocean Holdings Incorporated — have fully paid the previous three bills, totaling $122.3 million.
