BP (BP) is reportedly in negotiations with U.S. officials to settle pollution claims related to the Deepwater Horizon spill. The government is seeking fines of up to $4,300 for each of the 4.1M barrels spilled, which could leave BP liable for as much as $17.6B. BP is also said to be in settlement talks with other firms tied to the spill.
