On the evening of April 20, 2010 an oil rig operating in the Gulf of Mexico, suffered a catastrophic oil spill and explosion that killed eleven people and subsequently became both an ecological and financial disaster. The oil rig known as the Deep Water Horizon, which is owned by BP Petroleum, burnt for 36 hours before sinking into the Gulf. BP has since plead guilty to 11 counts of Seaman’s manslaughter, 2 counts of pollution violations, and one count of lying to Congress.
While the incident was an obvious financial disaster to BP, it also brought untold financial hardships to many small businesses that rely on the Gulf for their existence. All of us were affected in some way by the disaster, but for those who financial livelihood depended on the waterways of the Gulf the spill was a life changer. The disruption of business the oil spill caused placed many small businesses in financial limbo.
