Oil giant BP has confirmed it will begin drilling off the Libyan coast in the next few weeks.
The deepwater drilling will take place in the Gulf of Sirte following a deal signed in 2007 with Libya on oil and gas development.
The news comes amid major concerns over BP's environmental and safety record following the Gulf of Mexico spill.
In the last few years alone, BP has paid over $730 millions dollars in fines and settlements, plead guilty to two crimes and has been found liable for everything from willful neglect of worker safety rules to manipulating energy markets.
Given BP's extremely poor record of towing the line and the magnitude of this disaster, I think that BP should be banned from doing any and all business here in America.
