Oil and gas disasters

An explosion after a blowout on a drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010 triggered the start of a disaster that probably led to the worst oil pollution in the history of the United States.
 

Defective blowout preventer

For a period of nearly three months, until 15 July 2010, crude oil flowed out of the drilled hole through a defective blowout preventer. It is estimated that more than 800 million liters of oil spilled into the sea as a result of the disaster. It cost BP, the oil field operator, around USD 8 billion (EUR 5.9 billion). The company lost EUR 54 billion in market value.
