12:27 EDTRIG, BPTransocean announces $1.4B settlement with Justice Department
Transocean announced that it has reached an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice to resolve certain outstanding civil and potential criminal claims against the company arising from the 2010 accident involving the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico. As part of this resolution, a Transocean subsidiary has agreed to plead guilty to one misdemeanor violation of the Clean Water Act for negligent discharge of oil into the Gulf of Mexico and pay $1.4B in fines, recoveries and penalties. This resolution will result in the Department of Justice concluding its criminal investigation of Transocean and settling its claims for civil penalties against the company relating to the spill from BP's (BP) Macondo well. The company intends to satisfy its payment obligations over a period of five years, using cash on hand and cash flow from operations. At September 30, Transocean had accrued an estimated loss contingency of $1.5B associated with claims made by the Department of Justice. Any potential claims associated with the Natural Resources Damage Assessment process are excluded from the agreement with the Department of Justice, the company said.
