The initial reports from the 7-days-old Deepwater Horizon Claims Center are expected to come out today.
Center administrator Patrick Juneau said the facility’s work is totally transparent.
He said it can be called transparency on steroids. “We are here for serving the citizens.
Juneau was appointed by Federal Judge Carl Barbier to manage the oil spill claims process following the approval of a class-action settlement between the private plaintiffs and BP Plc. The center administered by Juneau replaced the Gulf Coast Claims Facility (GCCF), a facility established by BP after the oil spill disaster in order to compensate victims.
According to Juneau, the paid out amounts will be published every week. There is no upper limit for the compensation amount.
