Class Action on Behalf of Businesses, Homeowners and Fishermen for Economic Damages
Audet & Partners, LLP is investigating oil spill lawsuit claims on behalf of residents and businesses in the Huntington Beach area who may be adversely impacted by the oil spill that occurred in October 2021. On Saturday, October 2, 2021, workers from Houston-based Amplify Energy Corp. noticed oil in the water. It is preliminarily suspected that the leak emanated somewhere along a pipeline 4.5 miles offshore connecting the Elly platform to the coast.
It is thought that the spill may have totaled approximately 126,000 gallons of oil.
The oil spill had an immediate impact on the economy in and surrounding the Huntington Beach area. Officials almost immediately canceled the final day of the three-day Pacific Airshow which is thought to generate almost $70 million in spending and several million in additional tourism revenue. The day the spill was reported was also thought to be one of the busiest days in Huntington Beach history, with over a million onlookers visiting the shoreline. The economic loss solely for the shutdown on Sunday October 3rd is expected to be in the millions.
Initial projections anticipate that area beaches may be closed for several weeks.
