What's New at BCA

Gunning for BP

February 15, 2011, 2:46 pm

Brent Coon is on the warpath over the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Miles Lang talks to the Texan lawyer as he resumes hostilities with an old foe, BP.

HE RIDES a Harley, plays guitar in a rock band and goes skydiving. But Brent Coon's name is known for something else: suing BP. And that's ok with him. With Coon leading many of the lawsuits against BP following the Texas City refinery disaster of 2005, which killed 15 workers and injured more than 100, the settlements ran to more than $3bn.

BP to sell Texas City refinery

February 1, 2011, 2:24 pm

BP announced Tuesday it plans to sell its Texas City and Carson, Calif. refineries, cutting its U.S. refining capacity in half.

Beaumont attorney Brent Coon, who represented plaintiffs in a lawsuit against BP after the company's 2005 Texas City refinery explosion, said it's not clear how the facility's ongoing probation status under a federal criminal settlement will impact the sale.


Sex, Drugs & Alcohol: How BP Secured an Oil Deal in Azerbaijan

November 2, 2010, 2:26 pm

As reported late last week, BP signed a 30-year deal with Azerbaijan on Thursday to explore and develop major Caspian Sea gas fields. On its own, the story is a little bit dull to those outside of the petrochemical industry and financial world, but once the light is shined on this seedy backstory, we begin to see a tale of corruption and misdeeds. BP has been counting on the short memory of the public to forget how this deal began years ago and the real story here is the culmination of a long, dark road filled with BP’s unique brand of debauchery and decadence. But after the Gulf Coast oil spill, our memories are not so temporal.


DOJ Refuses to Revoke BP's Probation Over Safety Violations at Texas City Refinery

September 28, 2010, 2:31 pm

The Department of Justice (DOJ) has refused to pursue a probation revocation case against BP after the company was found to have violated a federal judge's March 2009 felony judgment, which required BP to fulfill the terms of a settlement agreement it entered into with government regulators five years ago to make certain safety upgrades at its Texas City refinery by September 2009, according to documents obtained by Truthout.

Instead, the DOJ will allow BP to spend two additional years to correct hundreds of safety problems that have plagued the refinery - the third-largest in the country - for a decade and have played a part in the deaths of 19 people over the past five years.
