BP Oil Spill- Deep Water Horizon

The Deepwater Horizon oil spill (also known as the BP oil spill/leak, the BP oil disaster, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, and the Macondo blowout) is an industrial disaster that began on 20 April 2010 and was considered to be the largest marine oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry.
A massive response ensued to protect beaches, and environment from the spreading oil utilizing skimmer ship and floating booms.
