Big Oozy Blues Redux
It’s starting to feel like Spring 2010 in Louisiana. And, not in that positive, Saints-championship-afterglow way. Skimmers have been dispatched to the Gulf. Underwater robots are probing oil leaks. On Friday (5.13), new details continued to emerge about a nearly 90,000 gallon oil spill from a Shell pipeline.
Big Oozy Film Drops Trailer
Today, the first trailer for Lionsgate’s “Deepwater Horizon” movie was released. The film appears to be a classic 70’s style disaster flick focused on the actual blowout and the rig workers or “real heroes” involved—glossing over the months of uncontrolled oil pumping into the gulf, the economic devastation that followed, criminal negligence, or the subsequent years of environmental damage.
Oil Money: BP Settles for 20B
On Monday (10.05) morning, a consent decree was filed in federal court to outlining the final details of the 20 billion dollar BP settlement. A joint announcement from the Department of Justice, Environmental Protection Agency, as well as Commerce Agriculture and Interior departments explained that the historical deal was matter of dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s on a deal hashed out in July.
Big Dollars for Big Oozy
BP Agrees to 18.7 Billion Dollar Settlement for Deepwater Horizon
The protracted Big Oozy saga is one step closer to a legal resolution. On Thursday (7.02), the Justice Department announced that BP will pay 18.7 billion dollars to settle civil claims related to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster including over 6.8 billion dollars to Louisiana.
P&J's Sal Sunseri Talks Oyster Issues Ahead of Fest
This weekend, New Orleanians will gather to celebrate the annual Oyster Festival, but in the unofficial “Oyster Capital of America,” all is not right. Five years after the explosion of BP’s oil rig, Deepwater Horizon, New Orleanians are still reporting problems caused by the oil that flooded the Gulf of Mexico. Sal Sunseri, co-owner of P&J Oyster Co. and co-founder of the New Orleans Oyster Festival talked with NoDef about the lingering effects.
Today in NOLA 4.17.15
Today in NOLA, the LPO is offering some top flight classical music. Tank and the Bangas are continuing their mercurial rise and musicians are banding together to fight for the Gulf. On this day in 1811, Attakapas Country was abolished and established as St. Martin and St. Mary Parishes. Now, more to do in Orleans Parish.
'Week of Action' Precedes Big Oozy Birthday
Tis the season for lineup rollouts. But, amidst all of the festivals roster reveal, one somber schedule was released. April 20 marks the five year anniversary of the BP Oil Spill. A week of activities is scheduled preceding the Big Oozy’s birthday.
BP Grossly Negligent in 2010 Big Oozy Disaster
BP’s conduct in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill was “grossly negligent,” U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier ruled this morning (9.4). Barbier also ruled that Transocean and Halliburton were each “negligent.” The decision assigned 67% of responsibility for the incident to BP, 30% to Transocean, and 3% to Halliburton.
Blowout Preventer Was Activated, Says BP Oil Disaster Report
More than four years after the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster, oil is still being collected and the court case drags on. On Thursday, investigators also revealed they're still learning more about what happened at the bottom of the Gulf on April 20, 2010. Turns out, the much-discussed Blowout Preventer worked. But instead of shutting off the flow of oil, it directly caused the unmitigated flow of crude into the Gulf. BP disputed the new findings.
BP Eyes Supreme Court for Oil Disaster Claims
They've taken out full-page ads in the New York Times and aired their case on 60 Minutes. Now, BP is taking their Big Oozy claim appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Officials with the British oil giant said Wednesday that they plan take their request to review the claims process laid out by a 2012 settlement agreement in the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster case.
