The Deepwater Horizon Disaster and the Case against

BP under the Clean Water Act


This presentation summarizes BP’s deepwater operations in the Gulf of Mexico, the Deepwater Horizon Disaster in April 2010, and the ensuing leak of hydrocarbons into the Gulf of Mexico for 87 days, with a focus on BP’s organizational structure for engaging in the business of deepwater exploration and production.  Prof. Quivik testified as an expert witness for the United States at the Deepwater Horizon trial in New Orleans in January 2015.  The presentation will also outline some of the factual matters that were at issue during the legal proceedings.
