Gulf Oil Slick – MUCH Worse Than BP Admits

Posted on May 25, 2010 by bp complaints

May 10, 2010 — Video is from Alabama resident John Wathen as a volunteer pilot flew him over the area where the oil rig sank. Officials have stopped guessing at the amount of oil leaking although some speculate it may be closer to 1 million gallons per day. Don’t let BP spin this into something trivial. “It’s not a leak, it’s a volcano spewing oil”

Congressional investigators announced Wednesday that an emergency shutoff valve might have been able to prevent the BP Plc (NYSE:BP) oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, had it not been equipped with a leaking hydraulic system and one useless valve. The Transocean Ltd-owned (NYSE:RIG) Deepwater Horizon drilling rig was supposed to be equipped with a blowout preventer capable of pushing back on high pressure oil and gas surges, but instead failed, killing eleven workers in an explosion. Poor maintenance and necessary modifications on the blowout preventer were pinpointed by chairman of the House Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) as the reasons behind the explosive spill. Stupak said, “The safety of [the rig’s] entire operations rested on the performance of a leaking, modified, defective blowout preventer.” The blowout preventer was manufactured by Cameron International Corp. (NYSE:CAM), and crews noticed the leak oozing from a faulty and loose connection. However, Cameron International told the Investigations Subcommittee that it could not have been the blowout preventer that caused the leak, since the other connections were tightly fitted. An additional shut-off system on the blowout preventer was also modified, and reportedly did not work either. Rep. Stupak said, “An entire day’s worth of precious time had been spent engaging rams that closed the wrong way because it was wired wrong.” A document was identified by the Investigations

    I sure your source was real reliable. Hey did you hear George Bush was from Mars?

    it seems to me the best solution would be to take a cable and attach it to the blowout preventer and yank it off with a crane, and then take the drill steam that nomally would be used to drill the deep ocean wells and attach a wedge shaped piece of metal or wood and jam it down the main well head. by taking the bop off the well head you would only have one leak insted of 5 leaks.. and it would be a straight shot into the pipe with the wedge shaped plug.. not rocket science..

    They won’t learn anything, there is evidence pointing to this being somewhat manufactured crisis.

    The people involved are beyond sanity, vile and evil would describe them well.
    Corporations don’t care, they just pay a fine and continue with business.
    That is the NEW WORLD ORDER.

    “the price we’re paying now is far too expensive”

    Wrong. The disaster can be partially attributed to the ultra-low prices we pay at the pump. You wanted it America, go got it. We are ALL TO BLAME. ALL OF US (U.S.).
