Judge Rules on BP Probation
Rules in Favor of Company
A Federal Court Judge has ruled that oil giant BP did not violate the terms of probation following a 2009 spill at the Lisburne Processing Center in Prudhoe Bay.
The company was on probation at the time the spill happened for a violation of the clean water act in 2007.
Today Judge Beistline rejected claims from prosecutors the Lisburne spill did not break the terms of probation
BP issued at statement after the judge’s favorable ruling saying, “We know that the privilege of working in Alaska comes with a responsibility to maintain high standards. We will continue our commitment to running safe and compliant operations.”
