The Online Clearinghouse for Education And Networking - Oil Interdisciplinary Learning (OCEAN-OIL) is a peer-reviewed collection of scientific information and educational resources about the Deepwater Horizon disaster and its broader energy and environmental issues. OCEAN-OIL is a collaborative, community-driven effort by scientists, teachers, and concerned citizens. OCEAN-OIL is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation, Division of Undergraduate Education.

Federal government officials estimated that the deepwater well ultimately released (over 84 days) over 200 million gallons (or 4.9 million barrels) of crude oil. Although decreasing amounts of oil were observed on the ocean surface following the well’s containment on July 15, 2010, oil spill response officials and researchers have found oil in other places. A pressing question that has been raised by many stakeholders is where did the oil go? On August 4, 2010, the federal government released an estimate of the oil spill budget for the Deepwater Horizon incident. On November 23, 2010, the federal government released a peerreviewed “Technical Document” that further explained how the estimates were derived, and in some cases, modified the... More »
Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill: Highlighted Actions and Issues Last Updated on 2011-08-08 00:00:00 Summary This report highlights actions taken and issues raised as a result of the April 20, 2010, explosion on the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling rig, and the resulting oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

At least three committees in both the House and the Senate have held hearings on issues associated with the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Members have introduced multiple proposals that would address various issues, including: • the regulatory regime for outer continental shelf (OCS) oil exploration and development activities; • the liability and compensation framework created by the 1990 Oil Pollution Act; • technological challenges involved with...
