The Deepwater Horizon oil spill is an industrial disaster that began on 20 April 2010, in the Gulf of Mexico and considered to be the largest marine oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry. However, the largest oil spill record has already been taken down by Taylor Energy after the discovery of the leak days ago.
The report from Washington Post said that the government had estimated 10,000 to 30,000 gallons of oil per day is leaking into the Gulf of Mexico from the spill, which began when Hurricane Ivan toppled an oil platform owned by Taylor about 12 miles off the coast in 2004.
Taylor Energy Company LLC explores, develops. and produces oil and natural gas. Later, sold its oil and gas assets in 2008 to Korea National Oil Corporation and Samsung C&T Corporation and ceased all drilling and production operations.
