On April 20, 2010, a massive explosion occurred on a deep-water drilling rig owned by British Petroleum (BP). The rig was known as the Deepwater Horizon, and the explosion had overwhelming economic and environmental ramifications. The BP oil spill was the worst American oil rig explosion since the Exxon Valdez disaster in 1989. The explosion on the BP Deepwater Horizon, which could be seen from miles around, caused the rig to sink and resulted in a catastrophic oil spill.

Who Did the Disaster Hurt?

The extent and scope of the oil spill’s economic impact have been far-reaching, and many individuals and institutions have been affected by this tragedy. Victims of the BP oil spill vary from giant business consortiums of fishermen to individual shrimpers, oyster fisherman, and other anglers and trawlers.

For many, the consequences of the BP oil spill have been less direct. To illustrate: seafood processors, manufacturers, sellers and retailers have been adversely affected by the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Further, condominium owners, restaurants, convenience stores, ports and other businesses that thrive off of the seafood industry and tourism have lost business and suffered economic turmoil.
