BP says oil leak costs rise to 930 million dollars
British energy group BP said Friday that its response costs linked to the huge Gulf of Mexico oil spill have risen to about 930 million dollars (753 million euros).
"The cost of the response to date amounts to about 930 million dollars, including the cost of the spill response, containment, relief well drilling, grants to the Gulf states, claims paid and federal costs," BP said in a statement.
"It is too early to quantify other potential costs and liabilities associated with the incident," it added.
