Question: Did the cost

1) come out of the $20bn compensation fund that BP have guaranteed
2) come out of $2bn (I think that was the latest figure or is $3bn) damages
3) Was it part of the running costs: I remember that BP tried to cut it off
   and were told that they had to keep the feed running

Total Buncefield fines were £5.6m.
