Image that understands how it can be done at 9 trillion yen which BP lost due to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico


Crude oil that flowed out in the Gulf of Mexico from April 20, 2010From 5560 kiloliters to 9530 kiloliters per dayIt is said that the total amount is 700,000 kiloliters, and the total damage amount is already an astronomical number. In addition, I can not assume how much it will cost to recover the costs used to restore the coastal environment and, above all, the cost of recovering "lost credit".

By the way, BP has lost a total of 100 billion dollars (about 9 trillion yen) as a sum of the market prices of the stocks that are the indicators of corporate credit, so-called market capitalization, but what if there is so much money Can we do it?

Details are below.

A total of 100 billion dollars (about 9 trillion yen)- This is the total price of BP lost since the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Approximately 3.5 billion dollars (about 300 billion yen) will be added to prevent this from continuing even now. Of course I still do not know how much this cost will continue to bulge and how much it will ultimately go.
