Notes

  1. For years 2002 and later, property damage is estimated as the sum of all public and private costs reported in the 30-day incident report. All costs shown are as reported by the operator at the time of the incident.
  2. Starting Sept 2013, this column displays "volume released unintentionally" for all years after 2009. Before Sept 2013, the column displayed the sum of "volume released unintentionally" and "volume released intentionally" for all years after 2009.
  3. Net Barrels Lost applies only to Liquid incidents and is the difference between Gross Barrels Spilled and Barrels Recovered.
