Scientist: BP Well Could Be Leaking 100,000 Barrels of Oil a Day

On Tuesday, BP and government officials claim that BP’s new cap system has collected over 51,000 barrels of oil since Friday. Tony Hayward has said he is hopeful the new measures would soon contain a major portion of the oil gushing out of the ruptured well, but scientist Ira Leifer says the oil may be gushing out at a rate of more than 100,000 barrels a day, a number that BP once called its worst-case scenario. Leifer is a researcher in the Marine Science Institute at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and a member of the government’s Flow Rate Technical Group.

  1. BP buys search term “oil spill” from Google

    Wed Jun 9, 2010 10:17am EDT

    LONDON (Reuters) – BP Plc has bought terms such as “oil spill” from search engine providers including Google Inc to help direct Internet users to its website as it attempts to control the worst oil spill in U.S. history.

    A spokesman said BP would pay fees so its own website would rank higher or even top in the list of results when Internet users search on terms such as “oil spill,” “volunteer” and “claims.”

    BP did not say how much it was paying for the service but President Barack Obama has criticized the company for spending $50 million on TV advertising to bolster its image during the crisis.

    BP said it wanted to help people who were trying to access information on the BP website to find it more readily, rather than intending to draw away hits from other sites.

    “We know people are looking for those terms on our website and we’re just trying to make it easier for them to get directly to those terms,” the spokesman told Reuters.

    The largely green and white BP.com website has a large red button at its center highlighting the “Gulf of Mexico Response.” The right hand side of the response site has a list of buttons advertising information on claims.

    BP is trying to control oil spewing from a ruptured well on the seabed in the Gulf of Mexico by using a containment cap.
