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.
Big Oozy on Trial, Part II
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.
Former FBI Director Finds Potential Corruption in Deepwater Horizon Claims Office
Patrick Juneau is Freeh to carry on, for now. For months, BP has been alleging corruption in the office of Juneau, where claims connected to the oil company's settlement with thousands of Louisiana residents and businesses in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon disaster are dispensed. An investigation of the claims office undertaken by former FBI Director Louis Freeh found conflicts of interest in the claims administrator's office, but cleared Juneau of wrongdoing.
I Turn My Cameron On: BP Asks PM for Help to Tame Claims
Three years after the Big Oozy, BP is now worried about a leak on the other side of the pond. Unsurprisingly, the British oil giant is worried about the money flowing out of their coffers into Louisiana and the other Gulf states that saw oil on their shores in 2010. According to a report by the BBC, BP HQ thinks their company is in jeopardy because of "fictitious" claim payments. The company is so worried that they want the prime minister to get involved, according to the report.
Jail Time for Woman Who Posed as OSHA Worker After Oozy
A Belle Chasse woman who acted as a federal environmental agent offering fake oil spill cleanup training classes in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon disaster was sentenced to prison this week, the U.S. District attorney’s office announced Friday. Connie M. Knight, 47, will serve 57 months in a federal penitentiary. She also was ordered to pay $25,000 in restitution to her 950 victims.
Jindal: New BP Money for La. Coast
More of BP's millions are headed to the Louisiana's imperiled Gulf Coast. Today, Governor Bobby Jindal and key politicians of local and state government announced that BP had agreed to an additional $340 million in projects for Louisiana's Gulf Coast region, projects that the Governor promised would help restore critical coastal infrastructure necessary for storm protection and restoring land and wildlife to the region.
On Third Anniversary of Deepwater Horizon Disaster, Disappearing Land and Reappearing Oil in Plaquemines Parish (PHOTOS)
While oil globs in Bay Jimmy and the occasional sheen continue to serve as chemical reminders of the Big Oozy, some of the most damaging effects of the 2010 disaster three years later are revealed by what can no longer be seen.
Bayou Blaze Still Burning, Oil Spill Creates Sheen (VIDEO)
The scorching fiyo on the bayou that started last night after a tugboat slammed into a pipeline near Lafitte continues to burn Wednesday afternoon. Officials are apparently set to let the Bayou Perot blaze run its course as they begin operations to contain and clean up oil that was spilled in the area, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

Settoon was pushing a 154-ft. barge in Bayou Perrot about 6 p.m. Tuesday when it collided with a pipeline. The tug and barge burst into flames, but crew members were able to escape.
