BP says it plans to appeal a US court's ruling that it was grossly negligent in the lead up to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
The law is clear that proving gross negligence is a very high bar that was not met in this case. BP believes that an impartial view of the record does not support the erroneous conclusion reached by the District Court.
The Court is yet to rule on the number of barrels spilled, which will be key in determining the fine it orders BP to pay.
BP will also seek to show that its conduct merits a penalty below the maximum applicable, the company said in its statement.
