I couldnt believe when i heard this on the News today;
BP Is Ready to Start Drilling in the Gulf of Mexico Again
BP has asked U.S. regulators to allow them to resume drilling for oil in the Gulf of Mexico. The request comes less than one year after a huge oil
spill on one of the company's rigs caused incalculable environmental damage and claimed the lives of 11 workers.
The request only involves ten existing wells with no new drilling occuring. Drilling has of course been stalled since the company's Macondo well
spilled 4.9 million barrels of oil into the gulf last summer. A spokesman for the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement, says
no deal with BP has been reached, though the company seems hopeful. “We’re making progress but it’s not a yes yet,” an unnamed BP official
told The New York Times.

The article speaks for itself
The scale of that disaster was disgraceful, all i can do is never use a BP petrol pump again!!
But i cant beleive that have the cheek and tenacity to ask to be allowed back into the Gulf. They should be out of business.
BP Share Index
It's also amazing looking at their share pricing that in the past year the stock has made a pretty good recovery. The massive drop was from
shareholders getting spooked and selling at the time of the spill, but since then things have been pretty good for BP. I will add as well that at the
time of the spill if anyone had ''put'' stocks they would have profited massively from the drop in share prices.....
