On May 2, 2012 BP created a fund of $7.8 billion dollars to cover the claims filed by Gulf residents and businesses under the court supervision of Federal Judge Carl Barbier. The amount of the fund is just an estimated amount; there is currently not an established cap to the monetary obligations that BP is responsible for covering.

On May 8, 2012, per a court order from the United States District Court, a notification effort was put into effect to begin informing people, businesses and other entities about two separate settlements relating to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The settlements are with BP America Production Company (BP) and BP Exploration & Production Inc.

BP recently announced that effective June 4, 2012, the BP Claims Program will accept claims under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990. The settlement claims are to be fully funded by BP who is obligated to fully satisfy all eligible claims under the terms of the Court supervised settlement. The terms look to compensate claimants for damages which the GCCF did not take into account. The terms also hold BP fully accountable to individuals and businesses harmed by the spill.

This Program is open to individuals and businesses that have experienced economic and property damages related to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. There are two categories that claimants must fall into: 1) Individuals and businesses that are not class members, as defined in the Economic and Property Damage Class Action Settlement Agreement; and 2) Individuals and businesses that are class members, as defined in the Economic and Property Damage Class Action Settlement Agreement that exercise their legal right to timely opt out of the class settlement.

Examples of eligible businesses are below, but many more businesses are now eligible:
