BP has agreed to pay a record environmental fine of $18.7bn


However, according to Jacqueline Savitz, vice-president for Oceana in the US, said: “If the court approves this proposal, BP will be getting off easy and ‘we the people’ will not be fully compensated for the natural resource damages that we suffered, and the law requires that the public is made whole for those damages.(…) The court should not let BP get off the hook without fully compensating Americans for what was lost.” To remember, 4.2m barrels of oil were spewing into the Gulf over 87 days after 2010 explosion at the Deepwater Horizon oil rig which affected the shore of the Gulf coast from Louisiana to Florida .and killed 11 people. Controversy exists about the spill volume, BP is arguing it was lower.
