BP to plead guilty for North Slope malfeasance

BP today agreed to plead guilty to violations of the federal Clean Water Act and pay $20 million in fines and restitution related to last year’s oil pipeline spills on the North Slope. It’s part of a $373 million settlement in which the company also accepts blame for a Texas refinery explosion two years ago and an attempt to manipulate lower 48 propane markets.
