The BP gulf spill started April 20, 2010 and was first contained July 15, 2010. Oil flowed into the Gulf of Mexico at an estimated rate of 30,000 - 60,000 barrels per day. Some oil was contained by siphoning directly from the cap, some was burned in open waters, some was "dispersed" using chemicals and some was skimmed.

The NY Times and Associated Press have been reporting a total of "94 to 184 million gallons". This estimate as of July 29th 2010 after the new temporary cap had been placed and the leak had been stopped. The final sealing of the well but pumping in drilling cement from one of the two relief wells is estimated to be completed by mid August.

An estimated 100 million to 210 million gallons of crude oil have leaked into the Gulf as of 2010 July 19.

This is also equivalent to about:

300,000 - 600,000 tonnes.

2 million - 4 million barrels.

340 million to 650 million litres.
