BP is not fully past the Deepwater Horizon disaster, the 2010 explosion that killed 11 workers and led to the largest oil spill in U.S. history. The company has so far set aside $42 billion to pay fines and damages resulting from the spill, and that amount may yet grow. Paying for the spill has forced BP to change. Under Bob Dudley, who became CEO in October 2010, BP has been selling smaller assets while holding onto promising large resources that it hopes to exploit with its expertise in developing large projects.
