Anadarko Petroleum Corp.'s Agreement to Pay $5.15 Billion to Resolve All Claims Against Kerr-Mcgee Corp. Receives Approval from Federal Judge

Anadarko Petroleum Corp.'s agreement to pay $5.15 billion to resolve all claims against its wholly-owned subsidiary Kerr-McGee Corp. has received approval from a federal judge. It was on April 4 that Anadarko announced the $5.15 billion settlement deal with plaintiffs and the U.S. government to resolve all claims against Kerr-McGee Corp., for alleged actions by Kerr-McGee prior to its acquisition by Anadarko in 2006. The U.S. government and the plaintiffs were seeking damages from Tronox Inc., which was a company created in 2005 through a spin-off of the polluting chemicals operations of Kerr-McGee. The settlement will see Anadarko paying a total of $5.15 billion, which includes a principal sum of about $3.98 billion plus a 6% interest on the sum from May 2009, the date when the complaint was filed.
