BP 'Not Trustworthy' on Texas Oil Contracts Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Mon, Jun 16, 2014, 08:00 PM

BP (British Petroleum) has proven to be unreliable about fulfilling the terms of its contracts with Texas companies.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "Fluor Corp. is suing BP over millions of dollars in workers’ compensation claims related to cleanup efforts after the Gulf oil spill in 2010."

BP had also broken contracts with Texas companies even after major costs were incurred.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "Fluor says BP has violated a contractual agreement by failing to repay litigation costs that Fluor incurred from the claims. A subsidiary of the Irving, Texas-based engineering firm agreed to help BP clean up the oil-polluted Gulf of Mexico in 2010 by training unemployed Florida and Alabama residents to restore the beaches, along with other services. Its condition: That BP agree to protect it against legal costs, Fluor said in court documents filed in a Harris County district court Friday."

BP may have some serious problems getting contracts signed in the near future, especially in the Lone Star state.
