NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- BP received a seventh bill from the government on Thursday, for $62.6 million, for cleanup costs related to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
The Obama administration said BP (BP) "and other responsible parties" -- Transocean, MOEX and Anadarko -- have paid the first six bills in full, for a total of $518.4 million. Thursday's bill makes a total of $581 million billed to date.
This disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, where an explosion occurred aboard the drilling rig Deepwater Horizon, caused thousands of gallons of oil to gush from the compromised well each day for months.
The government reiterated that BP "is financially responsible for all costs associated with all costs associated with oil removal."
That response includes efforts to stop the leak, reduce the spread of oil, protect the shoreline and mitigate damage to the public health or welfare.
Thursday's bill included expenses from two dozen federal entities and agencies from four states, the government said. Other costs, such as claims for lost wages, are being paid directly by BP and are not included in the federal bills.
