HOUSTON (AP) - BP PLC says it has created a special team to
speed up payments to businesses that have submitted claims in the
aftermath of the Gulf oil spill.

BP says in a news release Tuesday that change and others are
designed to reduce paperwork and expedite payments to
"businesspeople who are suffering."

BP says it processed about 2,600 business claims in the past
three days totaling $9 million.

BP is encouraging businesses that need cash urgently to contact
their adjuster or BP so the claim can be referred to the Immediate
Action Claims Team.

Decisions on whether to award payments will still be made
judging by documentation.
