Scientists: Oil fouling Gulf matches Deepwater Horizon well

MOBILE, Alabama -- Scientific analysis has confirmed that oil bubbling up above BP’s sealed Deepwater Horizon well in recent days is a chemical match for the hundreds of millions of gallons of oil that spewed into the Gulf last summer.

The Press-Register collected samples of the oil about a mile from the well site on Tuesday and provided them to Ed Overton and Scott Miles, chemists with Louisiana State University.

The pair did much of the chemical work used by federal officials to fingerprint the BP oil, known as MC252.

“After examining the data, I think it’s a dead ringer for the MC252 oil, as good a match as I’ve seen,” Overton wrote in an email to the newspaper. “My guess is that it is probably coming from the broken riser pipe or sunken platform. ... However, it should be confirmed, just to make sure there is no leak from the plugged well.”

In an emailed statement, BP officials wrote that the company had a vessel stationed at the site all day Thursday but never saw any oil.

During BP’s inspection, the wind was blowing up to 10 mph, and waves were up to 2 feet high. Scientists said that even a light chop would likely have obscured the small sheens emerging every few seconds.

By contrast, the wind was still and seas were flat and glassy Tuesday when the newspaper located the oil.

“There is still no evidence that the oil came from the Macondo well,” BP officials wrote in the emailed statement.

Until the source is confirmed independently I'm inclined not to buy what BP has to say. I sincerely hope it's not coming from the concrete plug.

They may have to bring in the refined smellers that tested the sea food for the ultimate testing 13.gif

BP and their ilk are scum, wouldn't trust them as far as I could throw 'em. They have consistently lied from the rate of the spillage to use of toxic chemicals in an attempted cover up. Poisoning countless lives both in the sea and on the ground. Trust BP at your peril.

They have a bad track record, & no one trusts them. They may be tied or surpassing Monsanto in terms of public opinion.

BP sucks. Worst OSHA safety record of all the oil companies.

Biere.

I'd like to know from these "experts" if the exact chemical composition would match other wells drilled in same area?

Pssst-I know the answer......

or not-Please understand crude oil naturally oozes from the Gulf of Mexico seafloor. Has been for millions of years. Has anyone dared to address that or just the "BP Flappers"hug.gif there there, yes BP sucks chuckle.gif

The Cement Plug is actually 2 columns of cement. 1-the annulus which is the space between the casing and borehole and the wellbore or tubulars to both encase the well and produce it.

I don't like to call the cement "Flawed" more not enough testing of that slurry.

That's Why BP, Halliburton and Transocean all ƒükkêd it up. With the pressure tests showing to be a failure of the nitrogen charged cement slurry all 3 decided to go ahead to the next step which caused the blowout. If the dumbasses would have said we got a problem here, do NOT remove the heavy trilling fluids and replace with seawater until we confirm the failed tests. More than likely they would have never even needed the BOP. That decision had to come from all 3-companies. So very ƒükking sad :0(

Think of all those Pelicans....
