BP has launched a new website to counter critics and provide its own spin on developments involving the April 2010 blowout of its Macondo well, which caused the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon drillship, the death of 11 workers and an 87-day oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The website…includes sections providing the company's views on economic and environmental recovery from the spill, its own stories on issues concerning the federal damages lawsuit against the company, information about the company's drilling activities in the Gulf, and responses to critics…"BP was not grossly negligent" [the website states]…The answers also include the company's contention that only 3.26 million barrels of oil were released during the spill, of which 2.45 million barrels ended up in the Gulf waters, compared with a federal government estimate of 4.2 million barrels spilled…[Also refers to Halliburton, Transocean]
