BP temporarily locked out of US government contracts

BP will temporarily be locked out of lucrative deals, including contracts to supply the US military with fuel, and will also be barred from winning new licences to drill for oil until bosses can demonstrate what the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calls ‘present responsibility’.
In a brief statement, the EPA said its decision was taken in the light of BP’s ‘conduct with regard to the Deepwater Horizon blowout, explosion, oil spill, and response’.
It said BP had displayed a ‘lack of business integrity’ over the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
