One million gallons of oil a day gush into Gulf of Mexico

Interviews with surviving Deepwater Horizon rig workers show how explosions led to what may be the world's worst oil spill

By David Randall

An extraordinary account of how the Deepwater Horizon disaster occurred emerged yesterday in leaked interviews with surviving workers from the rig. They said that a methane gas bubble had formed, rocketed to the surface and caused a series of fires and explosions which destroyed the rig and began the gushing of millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, threatening wildlife and coastal livelihoods. Oil-covered birds caught by the outer edges of the 135-mile slick are now being found.


Word also came yesterday that the oil spill may be five times worse than previously thought. Ian MacDonald, a biological oceanographer at Florida State University, said he believed, after studying Nasa data, that about one million gallons a day were leeching into the sea, and that the volume discharged may have already exceeded the 11 million gallons of the 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster, widely regarded as the world's worst marine pollution incident. Mr MacDonald said there was, as of Friday, possibly as much as 6,178 square miles of oil-covered water in the Gulf.

Meanwhile, at the site of the ill-fated well, a mile beneath the surface, a massive metal chamber had been positioned over the rupture so it could contain and then capture the bulk of the leaking oil. The operation, which uses undersea robots, and has never before been attempted at this depth and pressure. But last night, the formation of ice crystals meant the dome had to be moved away from the leak.

This data a little closer to the truth I bet. Thanls OP.
Another day in eternity, basking in the reflected vortex of the chaotic light and the homogeneous metallic quantum foam.

Re: One million gallons of oil a day gush into Gulf of Mexico
the info on this is almost as clouded as the gulf is becoming. the dis info folks are out in full force on this thing. it must be very very bad. i was reading a news article just a couple of days ago. it was trying to claim
that "nowhere near the impact of exxon spill, not even if it flows uncapped for years".

So take bets now, how long before it is capped?

My guess? Seven weeks.

If they can't do it by then... Four months.

well My hope is within atleast 2 days. But sadly I think you may be right. Lets just hope and pray its not the 4 months.. that would be a disaster beyond what our minds will be able to wrap around.

Re: One million gallons of oil a day gush into Gulf of Mexico
the only other incident to compare it with (i guess) would be the ixtoc spill in 1979. it took them eight or nine months to stop it. the cut off thing functioned on it when it happened but they had to open it back up due to it not being able to handle the pressure. they claimed it worked
this time around as well but then said it didn't. maybe they had to leave it open too and aren't saying that at this point?

The gov is doing everything they can to keep this under wraps. According to this timeline published by the AP and White House themselves, Obama DID NOT PUBLICALLY MENTION THE SPILL UNTIL APRIL 29th (9 days after the fact)!!
Think about that.
