"Squeezed by a resolute White House, BP buckled last night to demands that it place $20 billion (£13.5bn) in an independently managed account to settle claims arising from the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and suspend dividend payments to its shareholders for the rest of this year.
The unusual and costly concessions were announced at the end of nearly four hours of sometimes intense negotiations at the White House between the principals of both sides, including BP chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg and, for a portion of the time at least, President Barack Obama.
The deal concluded weeks of bitter arm-wrestling between both sides. Obliging BP to put billions into a protected account was a key pledge of President Obama in his first Oval Office address to the nation on Tuesday night."
