$100 Million Bill Sent to BP (NYSE:BP), Anadarko (NYSE:APC) Transocean (NYSE:RIG), Others

The U.S. government sent another bill to those being held responsible for the Gulf oil spill, including BP (NYSE:BP), Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC) Transocean Holdings Incorporated (NYSE:RIG), Anadarko E&P Company and MOEX Offshore.

This bill isn't that much below the combined total of the other three bills sent them, which came to over $122 million, which have been paid in full.

Charges, which were just under $100 million, were related to cleanup operations related to the oil spill, which spread across over 24 government agencies; both federal and state.

According to the bill, they "check or money order" should be payable to the U.S. Coast Guard.
