Oil Spill Events Under Scrutiny

There are four active investigations across the federal government related to the BP Oil Spill, its causes and its aftermath. The inquiries will:

  • cover matters related to the explosion
  • aim to reach an independent, science-based understanding of what happened
  • investigate and prosecute all meritorious reports of fraud related to the oil spill and its aftermath
  • recommend how we can prevent – and mitigate the impact of – any future spills that result from offshore drilling
