State overviews of recovery efforts

Six years ago, BP committed to help the people of the Gulf Coast recover from the Deepwater Horizon accident. Today, it is clear, based on data from BP, government agencies and numerous credible third-party sources, that BP has kept that commitment. BP spent more than $29 billion on response, cleanup, early restoration and claims through July 2015, and the settlement announced at that time includes a total of $4.9 billion to be paid over 18 years to settle economic and other claims made by the five Gulf Coast states. This settlement was approved by a federal court in New Orleans in April 2016. BP has now provisioned over $61 billion relating to the spill, including response, cleanup, economic claims, government payments, settlements and restoration. No company has done more to respond to an industrial accident.
