Transocean Deepwater Inc. agreed Thursday in federal court to plead guilty to violating the Clean Water Act and pay $1.4 billion in civil and criminal fines and penalties for its conduct in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil-spill disaster, which killed 11 workers and released nearly 5 billion barrels of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico.
The Justice Department on Wednesday sued BP Exploration and Production Inc. and eight other companies in the Gulf oil spill disaster in an effort to recover billions of dollars in the largest offshore spill in U.S. history.
