Shell: 54,600 gallons of oil spilled in North Sea
"The British government said the leak was small compared to the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico last year - which dumped 206 million gallons of oil into the Gulf - but said it was still substantial for the U.K.'s continental shelf."
So now nearly every company (well, maybe not BP) involved in an oil spill can use that line - "It was small compared to the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico."
