​The Environmental Protection Agency in the US is again allowing BP to bid for US government contracts. The company had been barred following a guilty verdict in a case surrounding the Deepwater Horizon disaster of April 2010.

Interesting, I'd like to see BP be required to continue to pay extra for all their drilling to make sure they are safe.

I have learned one thing over the years and that is normally when a business (or company) has a major problem they are then the safest company around as they don't want further problems, they don't want the bad publicity and they don't want to have the major expense. So I would trust BP right now more than most companies drilling for oil.

I remember when a fast food chain, Jack-in-the-Box had people getting sick from bad meat in the hamburger. From that point they have been the safest place to eat; they have better safety regulations than the government requires and they are better procedures to protect the consumer.

I believe that Target will be much the same after their experience this past December. They will put measures in place to protect from this sort of thing.

IT is not that all companies are above mistakes or problems like this, it is how well they have placed measures to keep from having the mistakes a major disaster. I would trust BP and think that this is a good decision.

It might be good to get out there and deal with the people that pollute in such a way that is also detrimental to wildlife; where are we addressing these issues?

I could be wrong but I believe the EPA is corrupt.

Noted. My personal opinion is that BP should've been banned from the U.S. And, I don't trust them not to slide back into their lackadaisical, greedy ways. Nelson (above) has it right, and I agree the EPA is corrupt. That became clear to me when I watched Gasland Part 2.....very obvious!

Agree with both Nelson and Lois...All oil rigs are accidents waiting to happen.

Spammer flagged. BP hasn't even taken care of all the mess they already are obligated to do, and is trying to welch on repaying the sums they had promised. WHY on God's green earth would we want them back anywhere in the US? All of the stations have closed down here in Missouri, with good reason. We boycott all things BP now.

Spammer flagged. I do not trust BP to do the right thing. The things our government permit astound me.

Why would the US allow BP to be back? But then again corporations pay our politicians under the table in order to get what they want.
