A US federal judge has rejected BP's bid to reduce the maximum fine it could face over its role in the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
The fuel firm was hoping to cut its civil penalty per barrel spilled to $3,000 (£1,945), but US District Judge Carl Barbier upheld the government's ruling that the maximum fine should be $4,300 (£2,788).
It means BP could still face as much as $13.7 billion (£8.9bn) of civil fines from the spill.
Barbier did not rule on how much the company should actually pay out, and it is not yet known when he will make a decision.

The former mayor of the city of Iguala in Mexico faces trial following the disappearance and suspected murder of 43 students last year.Read the full story ›
Liverpool have agreed to sign Mexican international goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa for £3m in January, according to reports.
The Malaga stopper put in a string of impressive displays at the 2014 World Cup, particularly against hosts Brazil when he managed to keep all of their attacking players at bay.
Liverpool's number one Simon Mignolet was dropped for Sunday's match against Man United after his performances received widespread criticism leading up to the fixture.
The missing 43 Mexican students were kidnapped by police on orders of a local politician, police said.
Testimony from investigators suggested that the students, from an all-male leftist college, had clashed with the mayor of Iguala in the past and that the city police had handed them over to local gangsters who killed them.
Dozens of police are among 74 people held in the case.
