In the Gulf War oil spill, 240 million gallons of oil were discharged into the Persian Gulf. On to the Deepwater Horizon, where 53,000 barrels flowed into the Gulf of Mexico every day, and 11 men perished.

Next we have the Ixtoc 1 oil well, where 140 millions gallons of oil were discharged into the sea.

The FSO Nabarima has a capacity of 1.4 million barrels of oil. We do not want to make the list for all the wrong reasons.

We all know too well the damage of oil spills. You cannot have oil without oil spills.

Oil companies have put more birds in oil than all the chicken companies combined.
