UK Backs BP Over 'Excessive' US Ban on Contract Deals -- Report

The U.K. government is backing BP PLC (BP) in the dispute over the oil company's future in the U.S., calling the ban that stops it from winning federal contracts "excessive," reports the Financial Times Wednesday. BP has been barred from U.S. government contracts since the Deepwater Horizon disaster in 2010 but the paper quotes the U.K. as saying in a filing to court that the ban "affects jobs and pensions of workers in the United Kingdom, the United States, and elsewhere."
