On April 20, 2010, a massive explosion occurred on the British Petroleum (BP) owned deep water drilling rig known as the Deepwater Horizon, an event which had economic and environmental ramifications the likes of which this country has not seen since the Exxon Valdez disaster. 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.
The extent and scope of the economic impact resulting from the BP oil spill has been far reaching. Those affected from this tragedy have been plentiful. The victims have varied from giant business consortiums of fishermen to individual shrimpers, oysterers and other fishermen. But many also have felt the consequences of the BP oil spill indirectly. For instance, seafood processors, manufacturers, sellers and retailers have been adversely affected by the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Condominium owners, restaurants, convenience stores, ports and other businesses that thrive off of the seafood industry and tourism have also been economically impacted.
