BATON ROUGE-  Seven of the remaining 27 BP claims offices helping people with the aftereffects of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill will be closed effective Thursday, according to claims administrator Ken Feinberg.

Two of the closures are in Louisiana, the New Iberia and Venice locations.

Many businesses in the Baton Rouge area are still waiting on settlements.  Some owners tell News 2 they do not expect the claims office closings to affect their talks.  Ascension Marine owner Joel Campanile says the closures may simply be because fewer claims are being filed.

Feinberg says other offices will pick up the workload.  People still have about two years to file claims related to the spill.
