Effects on the Gulf Coast <ul><li>Florida had to issue tar ball advisories causing beaches to close </li></ul><ul><li>Over 8,000 birds, sea turtles, and marine animals were found injured or dead in the six months after the spill </li></ul><ul><li>Dead and dying deep sea corals were discovered seven miles from the Deepwater Horizon well </li></ul><ul><li>Many mammals ingested the oil, causing ulcers and internal bleeding and became at risk for potentially losing their habitat and food sources. </li></ul>
    4. 4. BP Plans to Reverse Damage <ul><li>Gulf of Mexico Restoration </li></ul><ul><li>Restoring the Tourism and Seafood industries </li></ul><ul><li>Paying for all legitimate claims for damages resulting from the incident </li></ul><ul><li>Finding new ways of oil extraction </li></ul><ul><li>Conducting research for alternative fuel sources </li></ul><ul><li>Encouraging biofuel production </li></ul><ul><li>Hiring the unemployed for clean-up </li></ul><ul><li>Reducing ethanol emissions through BP Target Neutral </li></ul>
    5. 5. Gulf of Mexico Restoration <ul><li>On shore and off shore beach restoration clean-up </li></ul><ul><li>To date, there has been an estimated 66.5 million hours devoted to the response </li></ul><ul><li>95,000 tons of oil have been collected from the shoreline </li></ul><ul><li>$13.6 billion has been spent to clean-up the beaches </li></ul>
    6. 6. How we are Reversing Damage Done to the Tourism Industry BP has committed a total of $92 million over a 3-year period for Alabama, Florida, Mississippi and Louisiana in which each state is using tourism funds to sponsor a variety of special events, including music festivals, classic car rallies, and fishing competitions, that attracts thousands of visitors
    7. 7. <ul><li>In addition to monetary assistance, BP launched a series of tourism campaigns entitled My Gulf featuring cities surrounding the Gulf </li></ul><ul><li>The ads feature spokespersons from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida who represent their communities as small business owners, community leaders and “tourism ambassadors. ” </li></ul><ul><li>This ad features Steve Jones, an honest photographer who talks about his town of Gulf Shores, Alabama and has the daily photos to show.

    11. 11. BP Initiatives for Oil Extraction <ul><li>Fracturing rocks: </li></ul><ul><li>exerting the right level and type of pressure into rocks with tight pores, we can stimulate a freer flow of natural gas deposits that would previously have remained trapped there. </li></ul><ul><li>Losal process: </li></ul><ul><li>Injecting water into a reservoir to flush out some of the remaining oil trapped in rock pores is a long-established technique </li></ul><ul><li>Injecting CO2 into wells: </li></ul><ul><li>Injecting natural gas is one way of flushing more oil out of a well </li></ul><ul><li>Micro-organisms: </li></ul><ul><li>Feeding certain micro-organisms in reservoirs might help lubricate rock surfaces, while others may simply munch on the oil until it breaks down, becoming runnier </li></ul>
    12. 12. BP Cellulosic Biofuels <ul><li>BP is investing in overseas bio-to-diesel technology in Brazil </li></ul><ul><li>There are 3 sugarcane ethanol mills that have been opened </li></ul><ul><li>BP is pairing up with Companhia Nacional de Cucar e Alcoo (CNAA), the leading biofuel producer in Brazil </li></ul><ul><li>Goal: “Harvest sugar and create ethanol with the least negative effect possible on the environment, preserving staff and respecting the neighboring communities and all partners” </li></ul>
    13. 13. Why Biofuel Technology? <ul><li>It is one of the most efficient forms of biofuel feedstock in commercial use present day </li></ul><ul><li>Can deliver greenhouse gas reductions of up to 90% compared to conventional fuels </li></ul><ul><li>Yields “bagasse” which is a byproduct heat that can be used and exported at 30 megawatts an hour (Which is the equivalent of electricity for 150,000 people) </li></ul><ul><li>Believe that feedstock cultivation can provide a catalyst for bringing improved agricultural skills and techniques into common practice </li></ul>
    14. 14. Other forms of Alternative Fuel
    15. 15. Hiring the unemployed for beach clean-up <ul><li>BP is hiring 4,500 unemployed workers in Alabama, Mississippi and Florida to clean oil spill on Gulf Coast beaches </li></ul><ul><li>Workers will be trained </li></ul><ul><li>Supervisors will be paid $32 an hour and workers will be paid $18 an hour </li></ul>
    16. 16. BP Target Neutral <ul><li>The program ’s goal is to “reduce, replace and neutralize” traveler’s CO2 emissions </li></ul><ul><li>Online calculator that allows a user to enter their travel plans and allow experts to give them advice and alternates to decrease the amount of CO2 emissions their current travel plans emit </li></ul><ul><li>BP has hired prominent environmental and industry experts to find ways of offsetting the amount of carbon they emit in their travels </li></ul><ul><li>The online calculator is offered at: </li></ul><ul><li> http://www.bptargetneutral.com/ </li></ul>
