BP oil spill live feed is something that many are following in the wake of the BP oil spill. Now, with a broken LMRP package, there is now a storm activity brewing in the area, and many fear how it could affect the spill.
The live feed showcases the ocean floor where the spill is taking place. For the past 67 days or so, black crude oil is just pouring in to the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This is why the market value of the company has fallen some $100 billion in a little over two months.
So far, BP has paid over $2 billion in claims, not including the $20 billion escrow fund required by the US Government. The oil spill continues to be a major issue for the company as they try to figure out how to stop the spill and clean it up, amid hurricane season.
The weather poses a unique threat to the BP containment operations. The ships collecting the oil on the surface of the ocean have to be given a five day warning in order to safely evacuate the area before a storm rolls in. This will involve the use of computer modeling and making judgement calls. One wrong call could either end in tragedy or waste precious time collecting oil.
