Alabama to Get $2.3 Billion in BP Oil Spill Settlement

BP and the state of Alabama have reached a multibillion-dollar agreement to settle the state's lawsuit against the company. As part of the settlement, Alabama will receive $2.3 billion from BP. About $1.3 billion of the total will go toward coastal restoration projects in the state. The other $1 billion will go to the state's general fund over the next 18 years.

Florida Nets More Than $3 Billion in BP Settlement

Florida will land about $3.25 billion as part of a multi-state federal settlement with BP over widespread damages caused by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster. The deal announced requires BP to pay $18.5 billion in economic and natural resources damages to the five Gulf Coast states affected by the disaster, which pumped at least 3.9 million gallons of oil off the coastlines of Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Florida stands to receive $2 billion for economic damages, the most of any Gulf Coast state, and $680 million for restoration projects. The deadly explosion aboard the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig and ensuing massive spill affected the environment, tourism and the fishing industry along the Gulf of Mexico but its effects rippled throughout the state.

BP has offered $8 a share for Penn Virginia, which drills for oil in Texas and elsewhere in the US, and has a market capitalization of about $319.2 million, according to people familiar with the matter. Penn is understood to have rejected the offer because it believes the terms offered undervalue the company, and is holding out for at least $10 a share. It is believed rivals to BP such as Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) and Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX) may also be interested in buying Penn Virginia.
