The Interior Department says BP can bid in next week's central Gulf of Mexico offshore lease sale, but will be disqualified if after a 90-day review it remains under the suspension imposed on federal contracts after its guilty plea to Macondo spill-related charges. BP has not said whether it will participate, but it is typically a big player in central Gulf sales because of the area's significant deepwater fields.

    BP deserves to be treated like any other oil company.
    What happened to BP can happen to any other oil digger.
    What will happen after every one had its own accident?
    Every oil company will have to seize operation?
    Wake up !!!

    Might there just be slight difference because BP is not a US company? Maybe they don't pay bribes, I mean make political contributions ?

    The government doesn't want them to stop operating, they are just posturing themselves to extract maximum cash from BP, just like they will do to all other producers of goods and services that they can get their grubby paws on. They could care less about the environment or ruined lives, they love any big screw up or even something that they can paint in a negative light. That opens the door for them to come in and feed off of the labor of productive people.
