BP is planning to raise 50 billion US dollars to cover the cost of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
London's Sunday Times, newspaper reports the company hopes to get: 10 billion from a bond sale, 20 from banks and 20 billion from asset sales over the next two years.
Meanwhile, Kenneth Feinberg, head of the 20 billion compensation fund set up by BP vowed to pay eligible claims as soon as possible.
He says politicizing the fund doesn't help when people in the Gulf are suffering and indesperate need.
Appearing on American television, Feinberg rejected US Republican Senator Joe Barton's, complaint that the fund amounts to a government "shakedown" of BP for the worst oil spill in US history.
