Debunks BP’s Claim for Source of Leaking Oil
The Times-Picayune reported Wednesday:
An overflight inspection of the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster site 40 miles south of Grand Isle this past weekend found a new, mile-long oil sheen, which has prompted the U.S. Coast Guard to again require BP to inspect the wellhead and debris area on the floor of the Gulf of Mexico with a remotely operated vehicle for the source of the oil. The flight was piloted by Bonny Schumaker, founder of the California-based non-profit On Wings of Care, which has conducted surveillance flights in the Gulf in the two years since the spill.
So much for BP’s “leaking cofferdam” theory.
Note: The new leak from BP’s site is totally separate from the explosion on a different drilling platform in the Gulf which recently killed several workers and leaked oil into the water.
