BP PLC says cleanup work is ending in three of the states affected by the company's 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The London-based oil giant on Monday said that the Coast Guard is concluding “active cleanup operations” in Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, but the work is ongoing along 84 miles of Louisiana's shoreline.

The Coast Guard will continue to respond to reports of oil washing up anywhere along the Gulf Coast. BP says it will take responsibility for removing any oil that from its blown-out Macondo well.

The company says it has spent more than $14 billion on response and cleanup activities.
