Additional InformationOn April 20 of this year, BP’s Deepwater Horizon offshore oil drilling rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana. The explosion killed 11 men and caused hundreds of millions of gallons of oil to gush into the Gulf of Mexico unabated for more than three months, causing the largest environmental disaster in United States history. The long-term impacts of this disaster will be explored in a special University Lectures presentation.
