BP Macondo Well Deepwater horizon disaster.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
12th October, 2013. Wisner Beach, Port Fourchon, Louisiana.
The Louisiana Offshore Oil Port, or LOOP pipeline runs underneath the beach, making it one of the most valuable stretches of land in the USA. Handling as much as 30% of the nation's oil needs and connecting to 50% of the nations petroleum refining capacity, the LOOP pipeline is one of the most strategically important sites in the USA. Constant erosion and an ongoing battle for compensation with oil giant BP following the Macondo Well Deepwater Horizon disaster, the Wisner Trust currently has the most expensive compensation claim against BP, with some estimates putting the claim as high as $1 Billion.
