Another oil leak, eh.....

Post by Elli on Tue Jul 27, 2010 2:13 pm

I just read on Yahoo! news that a new leak had been reported from the Gulf of Mexico.

For the whole article click this link:
http://uk.news.yahoo.com/18/20100727/tsc-barge-crashes-into-oil-well-in-gulf-e123fef.html

Another leak is not good for the sea-animals and those creatures that live near the shore.

Is this from BP again? Man, the clean-up crew will really have their hands full =/
EDIT: Why in the world would any oil company put a well-head only 6 feet below the surface? This was near bound to happen IMO.

It is one of the biggest disasters ever, I don't know how long it would take to get everything back to normal. People that live near the Gulf wouldn't be happy.

Well the reports haven't been confirmed yet, so we can still hope that it's not as bad as they say.

I've heard that the (ex-)boss of BP told us that it wasn't bad at all, but he lied. It is seriously bad, the disaster is probably the worst ever.

I don't see any future anymore in this company, they lost alot of money.

Earlier in the news today, they posted that EVERY SINGLE BP STATION around London had to be shut due to the leak.
EDIT: Here's the article for above. http://uk.news.yahoo.com/5/20100727/tuk-greenpeace-close-bp-petrol-stations-45dbed5.html

"The oil spill liability trust fund has been enacted to provide monetary support for any clean-up operation." Quoted from first article.

You can blame the politicians that put up the law, not the oil companies. Basically it's just insurance in use.

What I want to know is why they can't just stop all of the oil flow.

For which states/countries is that law, actually?

It is because it is underwater, which is more difficult to close the gap. I just don't know why a simple workman find the solution to solve it when the engeneers don't find the solution. But it looks like it's not solved yet. This is also a big work to get it closed, they may not make a mistake because there are others 2 gaps. It also must be strong material because the water can break the solution they found again. There is a pressure of the water and probably one for the oil.

Well, the thing is that the BP oil in UK isn't cheap. It's about 121.2 per litre (I think...) I think from what I gather is that BP oil in UK is the most expensive...

This oil spill stuff is serious. It's going to affect the ocean around the US greatly. Therefore, my opinion of BP at the moment:
