Earthjustice Wins 18 Year Oil Spill Lawsuit

In 2010, while on a survey mission to the Gulf to assess the damage caused by the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster, a nascent environmental watchdog group discovered an oil spill off the coast of Louisiana. The slick lasted longer than the BP leak, and satellite images confirmed its duration.

In 2010, the US Coast Guard estimated the Taylor spill to be between 84 and 294 gallons per day and stated it was a “continuous and unsafe crude oil accident.” However, Taylor energy downplayed its size and said it was impossible to stop.

Taylor Energy is attempting to avoid accountability for its oil spill. It’s been leaking millions of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico for 14 years, and still hasn’t fixed the problem.

The US Coast Guard estimates that the Taylor oil spill may be larger than BP’s Deepwater Horizon disaster. Taylor Energy is still trying to avoid responsibility for its oil spill, and has launched a series of legal actions against the government. They have also tried scorched-earth tactics to avoid accountability.

The Taylor Oil Spill is the largest oil spill in U.S. history, and its costs are expected to rise to $400 million. It’s also the nation’s longest continuous oil spill. However, we still don’t know how the Taylor spill will affect marine life. Unlike the BP disaster, which had significant impact on marine life, the Taylor spill continues to leak millions of barrels of oil into the Gulf.
