BP Picks Up Tab For Durango, CO Fireworks


www.krdo.com

DURANGO, Colo. -- The company stepped forward to pay for the annual July Fourth display back in December, five months before the start of its oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The display typically costs $15,000, and city officials were poised to cancel it because of a budget crunch.
Company spokesman Curtis Thomas said the company knows how important the celebration is to the community.... He said BP hasn't asked for any advertising in exchange for its donation.


Gee what a bunch of nice guys. The article goes on to say BP was fined $5.2 million this past week for allegedly submitting false reports concerning their natural gas drilling operation on the Southern Ute Indian Reservation near Durango.


.......The U.S. Department of Interior said the company at times reported erroneous royalty rates, or listed gas coming from the wrong wells. BP said the mistakes led it to underpay the Southern Utes about $200,000, money it says it has repaid the tribe.


So BP rips off the Ute tribe and is now doing some PR work by providing fireworks to nearby Durango. They're just paying off people all over the place. What other mistakes are they making that we don't know about yet? Fined for filing false reports..... "listed gas coming from the wrong wells"
WTH is with these guys. Either they don't know what they are doing or they know exactly what they're doing and these "mistakes" are intentional. How can we trust anything they say or do?
