BP to pay fine for Texas refinery - Americas - Al Jazeera English
BP has agreed to pay a record $50m fine for safety violations that resulted in the deaths of 15 people at its troubled Texas refinery in 2005.

The beleaguered oil giant also agreed to allocate $500m to fix safety problems at the refinery and accepted a set programme of safety inspections and review by the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Osha).
Ouch, this is a pretty solid blow to BP. This on top of the current conditions around the spill makes me wonder if BP will be able to continue business in the US.
