BP to divest half its U.S. refining capacity Stocks By Kristen Hays HOUSTON Tue Feb 1, 2011 2:37pm EST HOUSTON - Britain's BP Plc put half its U.S. refining assets up for sale on Tuesday, including the huge Texas City plant, a potentially prize asset but one that carries the stigma of a 2005 blast that killed 15 workers.

Bulldoze it down and let those so quick to sue look for other work.

I feel quite certain he will be able to get by as he flies around on this jets or hangs out on his yachts. Seriously, I live in Texas City and used to work at the BP plant. Mr. Buzbee was my attorney after the BP explosion and got me very fair money for my injuries. (I was less than 100 yards from ground zero) I still ache every morning, and cannot do what I used to could do. But, I know for a fact that he got me three times what some of my buddies got for similar injuries. I can't say I have recovered, but I can say that the financial pressure has been removed thanks to him.

And some were claiming injuries that weren't even in the plant !

BP just happen to have deep pockets.
