12:27 EDTBP, RIGTransocean 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.

06:20 EDTRIGU.S. oil firms preparing for extended job cuts, WSJ reports
U.S. energy companies intend to cut more jobs, sell more assets, and engage in more financial maneuvers to deal with the recent drop in U.S. crude-oil prices to below $50 a barrel, the Wall Street Journal reports. Companies have started to warn that more layoffs will come, particularly Halliburton (HAL) and Baker Hughes (BHI), who disclosed last week that they had cut 27,000 jobs between them, the report says. Job cuts for the industry are beginning to extend to engineers and scientists, the report adds. Publicly traded companies in oil industry include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Exxon Mobil (XOM), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT).

06:39 EDTBPEuro, U.S. oil and gas groups to find tough competition in Iran, WSJ says
European and U.S. oil and gas firms drawn to Iran as sanctions lessen can expect not only opportunities, but also Iranian companies offering tough competition or joint ventures, the Wall Street Journal reports. Though no Iran-based companies have the clout of firms such as Exxon Mobil (XOM) or Schlumberger (SLB), companies that can take on engineering tasks are emerging and growing in Iran, the report says. If the Iran nuclear agreement comes into effect and sanctions are lifted against Iran sometime soon, those Iranian companies will be well positioned to compete for tens of billions of dollars worth of service contracts, the report adds. Other publicly traded companies in the space include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT). Reference Link
