A US judge has ruled BP made "profit-driven decisions" during the drilling of an oil well in the Gulf of Mexico that led to a deadly explosion.
Ruling that BP had acted recklessly in relation to the 2010 spill, District Judge Barbier said: "These instances of negligence, taken together, evince an extreme deviation from the standard of care and a conscious disregard of known risks."
The oil giant pleaded guilty in January 2013 to manslaughter charges for the deaths of 11 rig workers following the blast.
