City of Gulfport has oil spill claim denied

Posted on January 24th, 2012 No Comments

The City of Gulfport, Mississippi has had it’s oil spill claim denied by BP. The claim is for $11.8 million and accounts for lost sales taxes and community damages during the 2010 tourist season due to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

BP is claiming that the city has not kept proper documentation of the damages and losses during the tourist season and therefore has denied the claim. Gulfport officials are hopeful that they can settle this situation without heading to court but they do not believe that their claim should have been turned down.

The city is standing firm and has already rejected one offer from BP in the amount of $76,000 to cover tax losses.
