Guidelines for BP gulf oil spill claims eligibility to be developed

The Gulf Coast Claims Facility will release proposed guidelines for determining eligibility of claims on the $20 billion BP oil spill damage fund.

The organization also will publish a proposed methodology for calculating future damage claims.

Starting Wednesday, the proposals will be available online ( www.GulfCoastClaimsFacility.com) and in the organization's 35 claims offices in the gulf region. Comments submitted to the GCCF during the two-week comment period will be posted online. Comments can be sent to MethodologyComments@gccf-claims.com or by mailing them to GCCF, P.O. Box 9658, Dublin, Ohio 43017-4958.

"We have spent the past few months consulting with various experts and others with knowledge of the gulf region," said Kenneth Feinberg, GCCF administrator. "We want to hear from the citizens most impacted by the oil spill before we finalize our eligibility criteria and damage calculations."
