An explosion occurred on the Deepwater Horizon oil platform, 70 km off the coast of Louisiana on 20 April 2010.

The disaster was the result of a wellhead blowout, which killed 11 people and after two days of fires, caused the platform to sink on 22 April.

Oil from the platform spilled into the Gulf of Mexico, causing the largest oil spill in U.S. history.
