    Deepwater Horizon was an ultra-deepwater, offshore drilling rig located in the Gulf of Mexico. On 20 April 2010, an uncontrollable blowout caused an explosion on the rig that killed 11 workers. The fire was inextinguishable and, two days later the Horizon sank, leaving the well gushing at the seabed and causing the largest oil spill in U.S. waters.
