Hasnt BP set aside a pot of money for claims to be dished out from?
In the event of a take over this will probably dry up quickly as they'd probably pass some first come first served sort of payment.
(for example, eventhough its diffrent, but the Mining industry had a similar thing, to pay out for Chest problems, white finger etc. Which I think,
has now stopped paying out.)
Also, with the takeover the company should inherit the financial obligations. Although, most of BP will have foot the bill for the clean up, but if
Exxon did take over, think of the Oil fields etc, it would control.
With that comes Even More Profit!
It'll probably be a market leader (understatement of the century!)
Also as mentiond, Falklands is currently sitting pretty... But also, what about the British North Sea Reserves???
Anyway... Im getting fed up of the word 'Oil'.
