New Horizon was a natural disaster, and not an accident, as was widely believed.
The oil rig exploded after it was struck by a wave in the Gulf of Mexico.
As the rig exploded, it ripped apart the seafloor, sending oil and gas into the atmosphere and causing massive damage.
The explosion killed 11 crewmembers and injured more than 1,000 people, and it was the worst oil spill in U.S. history.
Here are five things to know about the disaster: 1.
The Oil Spill Was Unplanned.
According to NASA, the accident occurred when the rig was being lowered to the seaflfloor at night, as it was being assembled.
The rig was on a routine test run.
The test rig was the only oil rig in the area and was about to be launched into the Gulf at a shallow depth.
According in the USGS, the oil was leaking and the rig had just reached about 50 feet below the surface when it exploded.
The first oil slicks were seen just minutes after the accident.
The BP Spill Isn’t The Only Oil Disaster Since Deepwater Oil Spills began.
In the US, the spill has caused more than $1.3 trillion in economic losses.
The spill occurred on March 20, 2010, when a crude oil tanker spilled about 2 million barrels of crude oil into the Atlantic Ocean.
The U.K. oil giant BP, which owns the rig, admitted that it knew it was going to spill.
BP’s CEO, Bob Dudley, told the BBC that he had made “a mistake” when he thought the rig would stay submerged for three weeks after the spill, which caused the spill to occur.
He said that it had been about a week since the spill and “the spill is still in the water.”
There Are No Major Oil Spilling Contributions in the United States.
The Deepwater Disaster is the largest oil spill ever, and the largest since the Exxon Valdez in Alaska.
The Exxon Valdes, a tanker owned by BP, spilled almost 800,000 barrels of oil into Alaska’s Gulf of Alaska.
That spill cost BP about $1 billion, which it spent on clean-up.
The Gulf of America is a vast region, stretching from the Atlantic to the Gulf Stream, and covers nearly two-thirds of the United Sates territory.
The extent of the spill in the U., however, has yet to be determined.
The US Has No Deepwater Spill Contribution.
The vast majority of oil spills are from oil drilling, which is illegal.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is responsible for monitoring oil spill incidents.
According the US Department of Energy, there were only three oil spills in the country in 2010.
The only other major oil spill was in the South Pacific Ocean in 1964.
However, the vast majority (94%) of the oil spills caused by drilling occur in the Pacific Ocean, where there are far fewer vessels.
Deepwater Contributes To Global Warming.
There is a connection between deepwater oil and global warming.
According a 2012 study, there are about 1,300 known deepwater spills in North America, and some of them are linked to global warming, such as the Deepwater Mariner incident from 1998.
There have been about 300 oil spills on the high seas.
Deep water is the deepest and deepest part of the ocean, and is usually found at depths of at least 100 feet.
In 2011, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) estimated that about half of the deepwater damage in the western Gulf of California was caused by oil spill.
This is not to say that oil spills aren’t damaging the marine environment, as a 2012 report found that the Gulf Coast of Florida, a large oil patch in the state, experienced more than 700 oil spills.
