The Deepwater Horizon oil spill (also referred to as the BP oil spill, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the BP oil disaster or the Macondo blowout) is an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. It is the largest marine oil spill in the history of the petroleum
industry. The spill stemmed from a sea-floor oil gusher that resulted from the April 20, 2010 Deepwater Horizon drilling rig explosion. The explosion killed 11 platform workers and injured 17 others. On July 15, the leak was stopped by capping
the gushing wellhead after releasing about 4.9 million barrels of crude oil. It was estimated that 53,000 barrels per day were escaping from the well just before it was capped. It is believed that the daily flow rate diminished over time, starting
at about 62,000 barrels per day and decreasing as the reservoir of hydrocarbons feeding the gusher was gradually depleted.

The spill is causing extensive damage to marine and wildlife habitats as well as the Gulf’s fishing and tourism industries. Scientists have also reported immense underwater plumes of dissolved oil not visible at the surface. Crews have been working
to protect hundreds of miles of beaches, wetlands and estuaries along the northern Gulf coast, using skimmer ships, floating containment booms, anchored barriers, and sand-filled barricades along shorelines. The U.S. Government has named BP as
the responsible party, and officials have committed to holding the company accountable for all cleanup costs and other damage.

The recent Gulf Coast Claims Facility was set up to help victims, but can victims really trust the perpetrators to fairly compensate them? Furthermore, by accepting
a settlement offer from the GCCF , claimants will be forever barred from recovery against BP in the future. If you or anyone you know was physically, economically or otherwise affected by this tragedy, call our office now to learn how we can help.
