BP wins court appeal on amount owed for oil spill
BP has won a US court ruling that could decrease the amount it owes for the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
On Wednesday, the Appeals Court in New Orleans granted an injunction against payments being made to businesses that claimed losses not linked to the 2010 oil disaster.
This decision reverses previous rulings that went against BP.
BP has paid more than 12 billion dollars in compensation and more than 14 billion dollars in crisis response and clean-up of the oil spill.
