HOOVER, Alabama – BP CEO Bob Dudley says BP officials will meet with representatives of Alabama, Governor Bob Riley and Attorney General Troy King on Monday to discuss the state’s $148 million claim against BP for the Gulf oil spill.
The attorney general filed suit against BP the same day the governor filed the initial claim. Dudley says that complicated the handling of the claim. He says Monday’s meeting is a get acquainted session, and he doesn’t expect a resolution.
Dudley made the comments Sunday in Hoover, where he is attending the Southern Governors’ Association.
