BP’s Commitment to the Gulf Continues


This Sunday, April 20th, marks four years since the Deepwater Horizon accident and the tragic loss of 11 lives.  Since that day, BP has been determined to do the right thing – assist those who were truly harmed by the spill, help the Gulf recover, and share the lessons learned.

Today, signs of progress are all around the Gulf, from record tourism, to a thriving fishing industry, to a cleaned shoreline for residents, visitors, and the region’s wildlife.  The Gulf and its people are remarkably resilient, and BP has been working hard to help them recover.

  • $13 billion in payments to people, businesses, and government entities harmed by the spill, as well as payments for tourism promotion and seafood testing and marketing.

  • $1 billion committed to speed the recovery of natural resources in the Gulf that were injured as a result of the accident. 

  • $1 billion to assess potential injury to natural resources and restoration options. 

  • $500 million committed for long-term independent oil spill research.

BP’s commitment to the Gulf and its people runs deeper than the nearly $30 billion that BP has spent on recovery.  It is also reflected in the jobs BP supports in the region, the energy we produce there every day, and BP’s strong roots in the many Gulf communities where our employees live and work.
