BP to pay $13M more for Texas safety violations

WASHINGTON -- Oil giant BP has agreed to pay an additional $13 million to settle charges of failing to fix safety violations at its Texas City oil refinery after a 2005 explosion killed 15 workers.

The settlement is the latest move toward resolving hundreds of violations at the plant alleged by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

BP had already paid $50 million in 2010 to settle some of the OSHA violations.
