Oceanographer Warns That BP Oil Disaster Created a New Fault Which Could “Release Oil Indefinitely”

BP

by JG Vibes

The BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico hasn’t been in the news much over the past year, but the clean up is far from over and many have warned that the problem was never really resolved.

Just recently, an oceanographer appeared on multiple mainstream media outlets to warn of the possibility that the BP oil disaster opened up a new fault, and could be leaking oil into the ocean indefinitely.

NBC Reported that:

“A persistent, mysterious “oil sheen” in the Gulf of Mexico near the site of BP’s Deepwater Horizon disaster grew to more than seven-miles long and one-mile wide during a recent stretch of calm seas, based on aerial observations made by a former NASA physicist turned environmental activist.”

“We had maybe three or four days (of calm weather) and that’s all it took for the stuff to build up considerably,” Bonny Schumaker, the physicist who now runs the non-profit On Wings of Care, which makes regular flights over regions of the Gulf affected by the 2010 oil spill.

In a flight report from Jan. 27 posted on the group’s website, she described the oily expanse as “huge.”

Schumaker first noticed the sheen in September 2012, when it was also reported by BP to the National Response Center, the point of contact for all oil spills and other discharges into the environment. Since then, BP has inspected the well site four times with underwater robots and found it secure.  However, since BP has been in charge of their own investigation it is very possible that they are taking measures to cover up the situation and make it appear to be less of a problem.

Later in the article the source of this oil sheen is discussed, and the possible implications are revealed:

“Schumaker first noticed the sheen in September 2012, when it was also reported by BP to the National Response Center, the point of contact for all oil spills and other discharges into the environment. Since then, BP has inspected the well site four times with underwater robots and found it secure.

The concern, he noted, is trying to sort out its source. “The chemical data are a bit ambiguous.” Some analyses he’s seen suggest the presence of drilling fluid, which is consistent with what Schumaker has heard. But other analyses, from other sources that he said he’s privy to, find no drilling fluid.

In that case, it’s possible that the wreckage in 2010 somehow opened up a new fault on the seafloor. That possibility is inconsistent with BP’s findings, but would nevertheless indicate potential for an indefinite release of oil.”

It is no surprise that this possibility conflicts with BP’s findings, and it is important to mention that so far BP’s findings and predictions have been far from trustworthy.  At this time though, there have been few other realistic explanations put forward as to why these new slicks are continuing to materialize.

    I have always thought the best solution to stop the leaks is to put in a wellhead and take the oil out. I think that is the only long term solution. If it isn’t there anymore it can’t leak out.

    Oil spills did not only happen to BP, but it also happened to other companies places as well such as in the gulf of Mexico, USA (Texas), Canada and in other places as well, and I wonder why the author did not mention other companies’s disasters???
    __________

    BP almost went broke for being penalized and paying huge bogus damages.

    About two weeks prior to the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, Goldman Sachs sold all their large BP oil stock holdings.

    The US has very high technology, which can build carriers and can almost fix anything, but not this minor one??? and the media outlets told us it couldn’t be done? Really????

    Where did all the spilled oil go? Cameras and journalists were threatened to be jailed for filming the spilled area (where the pipe was broken).
    __________

    All these disasters have happened lately to Britain, the US, Canada, etc… you can see the ECONOMY WILL COLLAPSE.

    Because everything is made and run by OIL.
    And Iran has threatened to close the Suez Canal if we go to war, that makes Wallstreet a million times richer.

    guess we dont have to worry about an oil shortage now?
