Reidrect from Kerr McGee
While Kerr-McGee was indeed bought out by Anadarko, it is still relevant as a separate encyclopedia entry, and should not redirect here. Schnabeltier Angriff 19:43, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Kerr-McGee, meanwhile, kept its valuable oil and gas assets." The cost to clean up the mess inherited by Tronox from Kerr-McGee was estimated by the courts to be over $5 billion.

"Among the dozens of locations targeted for cleanup under the settlement is a former chemical manufacturing site in Nevada that has led to contamination in Lake Mead, abandoned uranium mines in and around the Navajo Nation, and a Superfund site in Gloucester, N.J., polluted by thorium."
