Some Good News About the Oil Leak May 16, 2010

Good news finally comes from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill as BP has successfully siphoned oils from a well 50 miles off the Louisiana coast. BP officials have tried three times to siphon and contain the environmental nightmare as sea turtle, tar balls, and dolphins began washing ashore. According to AOL news, the company [BP] has inserted a “riser insertion tube” into the leaking pipe, and the flow of oil, gas and water is being funneled from the lead through a mile long pipe up to the water’s surface.

The first attempt failed due to ice crystals forming within the containment device as BP tried unsuccessfully to retrieve the oil. AOL news says that it is not collecting, according to BP, all the spill but the riser will account for 85% of the spill. The US Coast Guard has not agreed yet with BP’s estimate of oil containment, but it is good news. The environmental disaster happened on April 20 when a rig exploded and 11 men were killed. Estimates of the oil lost were way under estimates.
