October oil spill milestone: $520 million in seafood claims
Published September 29, 2016 Associated Press
NEW ORLEANS – The administrator of economic loss claims resulting from
the 2010 BP oil spill says he expects about $520 million in seafood
industry claims to be paid in the Gulf of Mexico states as early as next
Patrick Juneau says the disbursements will essentially close out the
$2.3 billion seafood compensation program arising from the spill.
Juneau administers payments from a 2012 settlement BP reached with
people and businesses that claimed economic harm after the Deepwater
Horizon rig explosion. That disaster killed 11 workers and spewed
millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf.
The seafood claims Juneau discussed in a Thursday interview are part of
a more than $9 billion in settlement money approved so far for a variety
of people and businesses affected by the spill.
