    In terms of crude oil that was lost and spilt into the environment, No.  There have been numerous oil spills throughout history that have released even more oil into the environment.

    Also, in terms of the type of explosion/spill that occurred, called a ‘blow-out’, this is not the first.  Check the Wikipedia link below for a list of numerous offshore blow-outs throughout history.
