BP Plc contractor workers pull up an oil-soaked absorbent boom in Bay Ronquille off the coast of Grand Isle, Louisiana, U.S., on Tuesday, June 15, 2010. The BP Plc oil spill, which began when the leased Transocean Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded on April 20, has closed as much as 37 percent of federal waters in the Gulf of Mexico to fishing, cut offshore drilling in the U.S. by half, and polluted at least 140 miles (225 kilometers) of shoreline from Louisiana to Florida.
