Company could face 3000 dollars per gallon environmental fine. At 40 thousand barrels a day that would = 6.6 billion in fines per day. so right now I would say multiply that by 54 days and its comes up to 356 billion dollars in fines so far. No wonder the government wants the dividend money put in a escrow for claims. Even if they settle with the government it will be far more than what the company is worth.
