Alabama’s Attorney General, Luther Strange, and Patrick Juneau, a court-appointed oil spill claims administrator, will conduct briefings about who is qualified to file a claim in the settlement with BP and how to go about filing.

The disaster happened on April 20, 2010, when the Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig exploded.

It killed 11 workers and released more than four million gallons of water into the Gulf of Mexico.

Strange and other officials will hold two public briefings in North Alabama and one in Birmingham on Wednesday, June 5th, to spell out how the claims process is working in regard to seeking damages against BP.

The point of the briefings is to assist businesses and individuals in understanding the eligibility and proof requirements for submitting a claim under the BP Oil Spill Settlement.

The first briefing will begin at 9:00 a.m. at the Cullman Area Chamber of Commerce located at 301 2nd Avenue Southwest in Cullman.
