Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal said Wednesday afternoon at a press conference in New Orleans that BP, for the very first time, explicitly said it would not pay for any losses associated with the Gulf of Mexico oil drilling moratorium imposed by the federal government beyond the one-hundred-million-dollars that BP has already paid for claims.
The Obama administration had imposed the drilling moratorium on deep-sea drilling after the BP oil spill.
Jindal said that BP said it paid one hundred million dollars only as a “good will gesture”.
After the press conference, the governor’s press office told Bayoubuzz that BP made the moratorium claim refusal statement during the Group Unified Command meeting earlier Wednesday morning.
