07:56 EDTBPBP says disagrees with appeals court decision, held no provision for BEL claims
BP said it disagrees with the decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit denying the company’s request for a permanent injunction preventing certain payments under the Economic and Property Damages Settlement it reached in 2012. BP had asked the Court to prevent payments to business economic loss, BEL, claimants whose alleged injuries are not traceable to the Deepwater Horizon accident and oil spill. BP believes that such BEL claimants are not proper class members under the terms of the settlement and is considering its appellate options. The Judges on the panel split three ways, with two Judges voting to affirm the District Court and deny permanent injunctive relief but without agreeing in all respects on a rationale. By denying the relief BP requested, however, BP believes that today's decision will improperly allow for the payment of losses with no connection to the spill. BP further believes that unless this problem is fully corrected, the settlement cannot be upheld under the law. BP has accordingly already sought en banc rehearing of the January 2014 decision by a separate panel of the Fifth Circuit upholding the validity of the settlement. The full Court has not yet reached a decision on BP's en banc rehearing petition. As of December 31, 2013, BP held no provision for BEL claims payable under the settlement because no reliable estimate could be made. A provision for BEL claims will be established when the uncertainties referred to in BP’s fourth quarter and full year 2013 results announcement are resolved and a reliable estimate can be made of the liability, the company said.
