U.S. emphatic: no deal to let BP resume drilling

MEXICO CITY/WASHINGTON, Apr. 4, 2011 (Reuters) The U.S. interior secretary on Monday rejected reports that BP was striking a deal to resume deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico a year after the worst oil spill in U.S. history.

British media have said BP is in talks with Washington to restart drilling at existing fields following the blast on the Deepwater Horizon rig that ruptured the company's underwater Macondo well, unleashing millions of barrels of oil.

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar called that a "misconception", and a spokeswoman for the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management regulator said "there are no ongoing negotiations".

"There is absolutely no such agreement nor would there be such an agreement" with BP to resume drilling, Salazar said at a briefing while visiting the Mexican capital.
