Just found this news story:

Yes, back in the 70s, our dear "BP" actually allowed their name and logo to be used on a game about off shore drilling. Game info stated:

Up to four would-be tycoons can compete at exploring for oil, building platforms and laying pipelines to their home countries.

But BP Offshore Oil Strike players must also avoid the dreaded ‘hazard cards’, which state: ‘Blow-out! Rig damaged. Oil slick clean-up costs. Pay $1 million'

Unfortunately, the real costs, in money and lives, will be much higher than that.
