Special report: Civil fine in Gulf spill could be $4,300 barrel | Reuters


we all know they covered up how much was leaking to avoid the fines that may now MAY reach 34 billion dollars...


SHARP RISE IN FINES

The basic fine, according to the act, is $1,100 per barrel spilled. But the penalty can rise to $4,300 a barrel if a federal court rules the spill resulted from gross negligence. The fines were originally set at $1,000 to $3,000 but that was raised in 2004 to keep up with inflation, according to Tracy Hester, head of the Environmental Law and Policy program at the University of Houston.
