BP to pay $7.8 billion in settlements

A $7.8 billion settlement is in the works stemming from the 2010 BP oil spill.

Company officials say it reached the class action deal Wednesday. The terms were hammered out just two days before the second anniversary of the disaster.

It all started when a rig exploded aboard the deep-water horizon. Eleven workers died in that explosion.
