Tragedy struck on April 20, 2010 with the infamous Gulf Coast oil spill. Since then, BP has had to respond with recovery efforts to clean up our environment, our gulf communities and our coastal economies at a cost of over $8 billion to date on claims and clean up. This doesn’t even count the lost man hours and unrecoverable damages to our waters and wildlife which may be incalculable!
