BP Statement on Approval of PSC Medical Settlement 
Geoff Morrell, head of US Communications, issued the following statement today: 
BP is pleased that the Court has granted approval to the PSC settlement 
resolving the substantial majority of legitimate medical claims stemming from 
the Deepwater Horizon accident.  We believe that this settlement and the 
economic loss and property damage settlement, approved on December 21, 2012, 
are good for the people, businesses and communities of the Gulf and are in the 
best interests of BP’s stakeholders.  These settlements are historic 
resolutions that avoid years of lengthy litigation, and today’s decision by the 
Court represents yet another critical step forward for BP in meeting its 
commitment to economic and environmental restoration efforts in the Gulf and in 
eliminating legal risk facing the company.
