April 20, 2014 -- In the parking lot of a nondescript office on Grand Isle, three petty officers stood over the gate of a pickup truck, and sifted through a pile of earthen clumps.
Big Oozy's Pelican Death Toll Questioned
by Bob Marshall, The Lens
Almost from the start wildlife advocates described the Deepwater Horizon oil spill as a war on the Gulf ecosystem. Few quibbled with that analogy as a record 210 million gallons spewed into the Gulf just 50 miles from one of the world’s most productive coastal estuaries.
Gulf Wildlife Still Feeling Oily Impacts, Report Says
Deepwater Horizon oil may be buried these days, but the the Big Oozy's potential effects on wildlife are beginning to materialize on the surface. According to a new report released to coincide with the fourth anniversary of the Gulf oil disaster, the Macondo well's oil could be making its way up the marine life food chain.
Study: Big Oozy Caused Heart Problems in Tuna
The latest scientific study about the effects of the Big Oozy goes right to the heart. Crude oil that flowed from the Deepwater Horizon in 2010 is causing "severe defects" in the developing hearts of two varieities of large, predatory tuna, according to the paper, which was released this week by a team of scientists from NOAA and other agencies.
BP Engineer Convicted for Deleting Texts
A jury convicted a former BP engineer Tuesday for deleting text messages during the Big Oozy. Kurt Mix was convicted on a single obstruction of justice charge in New Orleans' federal courthouse at Camp and Poydras, making him the first individual to face a criminal conviction in connection with the 2010 oil disaster. He was acquitted by the jury on a second obstruction of justice charge brought by the feds.
BP Sues Lawyer Over 'Phantom' Deckhands
BP has taken its campaign against paying Big Oozy settlement claims to the airwaves and Emeril. Now, the oil giant is going straight for the lawyers. The British company sued Mikal Watts Tuesday, aruging that the Texas attorney handled claims for 40,000 deckhands that did not exist.
BP-Funded Coastal Plan Big on Restoring Barrier Islands
The group of federal and state officials overseeing post-Big Oozy coastal projects issued a plan Friday to spend about $627 million on coastal restoration projects. More than half of that money, which was committed from BP's coffers following the Deepwater Horizon disaster, would be spent on restoration of barrier islands off the coast of Louisiana, according to federal documents.
Tropical Storm Karen Uncovers Oil at Fourchon Beach, Grand Isle
Tropical Storm Karen didn't make it to South Louisiana, but her stalled engine did leave some oil behind. U.S. Coast Guard crews found a one-ton tar mat that was uncovered by the storm's currents on Fourchon Beach, according to Petty Officer Michael Anderson. On other coastal beaches in Louisiana, crews found about 500 pounds of tarballs scattered along 15 miles of shore.
Court Orders Pause in BP's Big Oozy Payouts
After many motions and many more TV commercials, BP found some sympathetic judges on Thursday. Two out of three judges on the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals found merit to the oil company's argument that too many claims might be going to people who were unaffected by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster. As a result, the judges told the U.S. District Court to do some quick sewing to button up the potentially fraudulent claims.

BP, Feds Back in Court to Argue Over Barrel Count, BOP on BOP
Remember the Top Kill? How about the Junk Shot? No, they weren't two of DJ Jubilee's many dance crazes. Instead, they combined to form one of BP's many failed attempts to cap the runaway Macondo well as it leaked millions of barrels of oil from the floor of the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.
