BP Oil Spill Map Gulf of Mexico 2010 Oil Leak Continues

As time continues, the BP oil spill map is growing as the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico continues on.  The devastation in the region could soon be far greater, as the first tropical storm appears to have the potential to hit the area.  Oil leak crews need 120 hours to respond to any hurricanes meaning that computer modeling of a storm is necessary.

What happens if predictions of where a storm will go are wrong? Then the BP oil spill will experience one of two types of setbacks.

First, the oil areas could be evacuated without reason, meaning that valuable time containing and cleaning up will be wasted.  Second, the crews could find out about the hurricane too late and then have to face the storm.  This could cause unnecessary casualties and damage.

Such is the reason that the oil spill officials will likely take a "better safe than sorry" approach to cleaning up the spill.

The map of the oil spill showing where oil has been found is growing.  The oil can be found on a map from Louisiana all the way to the Florida panhandle.  From marshes and wetlands in Louisiana to once pristine beaches on the panhandle the oil is washing up on land.

The oil leak is being monitored by pretty much everyone in the world.  Americans across the nation are concerned about what the oil spill means to their way of life.  Still yet, the leak continues and there is little that the average person can do to make their mark on the devastation.

  4. Going to any beach with oil on it is like chewing razor blades! The oil is loaded with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) . The introduction of chemical dispersants increases the amount of carcinogens in the oil. The federal government should be passing out Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) . They are designed to provide both workers and emergency personnel or people on the beach picking up or walking on tar balls with the proper procedures for handling hazardous material. The oil is a toxic material.

    Some people who have breathed or touched mixtures of PAHs and other chemicals for long periods of time have developed cancer. Some PAHs have caused cancer in laboratory animals when they breathed air containing them (lung cancer), ingested them in food (stomach cancer), or had them applied to their skin (skin cancer).

    We know this from an oil spill eight years ago in Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts. On April 27, 2003, eight years ago the Bouchard Barge B-120 hit an obstacle in Buzzards Bay, creating a 12-foot rupture in its hull and discharging an estimated 100,000 gallons of No. 6 oil. The oil is known to have affected an estimated 90 miles of shoreline, numerous bird species, and recreational use of the bay, such as shell fishing and boating.

  6. Pick a beach central to oil slick and funnel it onto that beach.It would be easier to clean up!

  7. I think it is more useful to talk about how to fight this disaster. Many solutions are required, some of it complicated and long term that should be carried out by governments and oil companies and other sulutions related to normal people who can volenteer to remove oil sludges and save animals. Yes we need to talk about how to save environment and our mother earth within our capibilities.

  8. wait till those hurricanes hit. i thought it couldn't rain oil, but i was proven wrong because it IS raining oil in Florida, Luisiana, aand Cuba. and the storm surges from those hurricanes will destroy the coasts. and to my belief Oil heats faster so if a hurricane is over the oil spill won't it grow faster? this is a huge disater, and also people 50 miles from the coast are breathing fumes from the oil spill and are getting sick. This is just sad. i will never go outside anymore thinking im breathing clean air. BP ruined earth for me.

  9. What really is starting to scare me about the progress being made in the gulf is the fact that I question whether we have the technology necessary to stop this leak and like so many other issues I feel the american people are being left out of the information loop. This lack of transparency in everything this administration has done recently leads me to believe that we might very well be looking at a disaster of epic proportions and are being given little or no accurate information about what is really going on.

  10. I would like to remind BP that if the relief well does not correct the problem, the economic impact of this environmental disaster will shock the world as it has never seen. I simply do not understand why it would make sense to drill that deep without knowing 100% that this type of accident could be corrected. The world really should ask the simple question to BP, if you were to know in advance that this type of accident could happen, and with no certainty that correcting the problem was a cap or relief well - would or should you have drilled their in the first place? How can you put a price on killing the gulf of mexico and the lives of many people and wildlife in the future. Twenty Billion was a gift from the government. BP as a company will be facing a much larger problem in the not so distant future. Why doesnt BP go on national television and explain to the world from a technical perspective how it will be fixed. People deserve to know, and they will understand if you tell them. It is unfair of your company to hide from the world after what has happened. Do the right thing and buy some tv time and educate the world now, before it is too late.

  12. They need to get there act together and stop this spill.Think or all the animals there killing.i Heard there setting oil on fire and killing tons of baby turtles that haven't even hatched yet.And all the dolphins washing up on shore.I no a lot of people sent in ideas to stop this.They haven't used any yet probably or this would be stopped.And i would like to remind BP that there is a tropical storm out there right now.and all that oil is going to go farther out and get mixed up and how many more animals will they kill before they care.They need to think about there loved ones then will they listen to the people and take some of there good ideas to account.Maybe!!!!!

  15. The spill in the gulf is a ridiculous accident that shouldn't have happened. If our government and also the citizens had said no to the foreign oil companies drilling in our waters we wouldn't have this problem. America should be drilling it's own oil, then it would be our responsibility and we would have this problem solved or maybe even would never have happened in the first place.
    To the comment about freezing it in liquid nitrogen. What is that going to do exactly? It is a massive leak under deep waters, if it even does freeze how long will that last. If the America government really wanted to stop this disaster, they would have. Jobs to volunteer or work to save the waters, animals, and stop the oil are just now being opened. The government doesn't care because they aren't being affected, they don't live on the coast, they don't earn income from the waters or tourists, and they don't know what its like. It is retarded and they all need to swim in the Gulf like they are making all the endangered animals, all the beautiful marine life, and if/when a hurricane comes they should be tied to the beaches watching the oil filled waters coming for them.

  16. As a result of this disaster in the gulf there will be horrible long term effects for some years to come. Not only will the aquatic animals suffer, but there will be a surge in different forms of cancer among humans as a result of this highly toxic chemical. If we think the cancer rate is high now,we will see the cancer rate soar in this area.

    The ignorance of some US citizens is quite staggering, Remember the 15000 KILLED by the toxic gas spill at Bohpal... How hard were you screaming then for help for those people Killed by failings of an American company?

    BP is a multinational , it is not a British company, more shares are owned in USA, more shareholders of BP are USA citizens, it employs most people in the US, it pays most tax in the US, it purchased more goods and services from US people and companies..... But for the ignorant it is easier to say it is a foreign company and ignore the facts....

    The Well is also owned 35% by two other companies who have not paid 1 single cent for the clean up or compensation yet BP are the enemy????

    Anyway the constant running down of BP will cause it to have funding problems that may well lead to its failure, that would mean millions of US and UK citizens would get less of a pension,hundreds of thousands would loose their Jobs and BP wont exist to pay to clean up the mess after the spill....So all those who need compensation will get squat...

    But at least the ignorant and ill informed will have the blood they so desire....

    BP are not the ones who need that sludge we all need it.just wait untill they start drilling the wells at 2,3,4 thousand feet and make no mistake they and not just BP anyone that can get a permit will drill for that sludge.if something goes wrong at those depths there will be no chance of stopping it,it will pour out until it runs out.goodbye world!!

  19. Everyone I encourage you to google up some facts about the federal reserve bank

    We are going to have to wake up the people or we are all screwed

  20. Okay, we can all point fingers, or we can focus on the animals and sea life don't have fingers to point with, and support them. They need our help the most. Humans can adapt to finding new careers, even if fishing has been in their families for generations. Things like this happen because of chance and carelessness. First and foremost, we need to meditate, pray or just cast Disney wishes and donations of whatever we have to the scientists, engineers and workers who are trying to solve this mess.
    Yes, BP fucked up royally. They are not entirely British as the above post explains, they are made of American shares too. Should they be held responsible? Of course, but we need to worry about that after we get this hole stopped up. The problems at hand are the animals and environment that cannot defend themselves from the toxic oil invading their habitat.

    That is entirely our fault.

  21. Our fault, meaning the human race. Not just Americans or British or any other nationalities. We need to stop arguing over who's the bigger ass for letting something like this happen, and we need to support all these people who are trying to solve it. Don't be part of the problem, be part of the damn solution.

  22. The Gulf spill could have happened to any one of the operators in the Gulf. BP conformed to those standards laid down by the USA Energy board, which have proven to be pathetic. I believe BP are being used as the scapegoat by the government (Who would NEVER admit fault). It's the USA Energy board that should man up and accept responsibility. Ultra sonic shut in valves on the drill string are mandatory on drilling rigs off Norway and can be used as a back up for the blow out prevention valve - This entire disaster could have been averted if the usa energy board shared the same highter standards.

  23. Imprison BP Executives and freeze all BP assets until the spill is cleaned up.

    As BP have already cancelled all of their dividends for 2010 and are paying all legitimate claims as they come in and fully funding the clean up operation, what would be the benfit of freezing their assets.. They are already doing everything asked of them...

    I am surprised at the animosity to BP who given a long history af disasters by many many companies over the years BP seems to be doing more than any company I have ever seen. (Much more than Exon after the Valdeze!!!"
    I honestly think the open and honest way they have handled the fallout of what is a huge environmental disaster is a lesson for other huge corporations.

    Dont forget the 2 other companies who own the rig and well have not paid 1 penny in compensation, and say they wont pay.. One of those companies is 100% American the other is from the Far East. How about we go after those who refuse to pay rather than those who are already paying?

    Wouldnt that make much more sense....

  25. I love how everyone here is blaming bp for this - the jury is still out on what exactly happened...BP didn't make the BOP, BP doesn't own the rig (it's rented). BP stepped up and took responsibility for the problem. Yes I know it's bad - but it was just a matter of time before something like this would happen - it just "happened" to be BP. Be thankful BP has enough resources to clean up. If it was a smaller company this happened to it could be much worse.
    I would also like to question all those people who say get rid of drilling and get rid of bp...Do you know how many people bp has on their payroll? BP Air, BP NGL, BP LNG, BP gas stations, BP Marketing, etc...They have plants that hire 6,000 people at one time.
    Another question - do you really know what oil makes? Propane, asphalt, plastic, etc... when was the last time you BBQ'd or drove a car? Oil will always be around unless the WHOLE world doesn't need the by-products...think before you talk.

  26. oh please! i do wish that no one would talk abt Bhopal gas tragedy(esp someone sitting in london and use it to look down on the US, as i am pretty sure there is absolutely no concern for the bhopal victims)and pls should we not like someone rightly said focus on the animals and the environment???? all the news talk abt the value of BP stocks, the amount of oil which would be spilled, and other rubbish instead of focussing on the marine life and environment.

    Now why is it not relevant to talk about Bhopal???? I cant think of anyhting more relevant...

    If you read my post you will see that I dont use that refrence to look down on the US, the US is a country I have an great deal of respect for and have visited on over 20 occasions... I look down on the bigoted, the ignorant, those that ignore all the facts that to look for an easy scapegoat..

    BP cant turn back time, I wish they could, they wish they could and everyone wishes they could but they cant. Given that we are in this disaster they should be congratulated for the promises they have given to repair the damage and do as much as possible to put things right.. This is a huge tragedy but nothing can change that, so BP are spending $150,000,000 a day trying to do the right thing.

    They should be criticised along with the regulator and the other companies for the tragedy but they alone should not be crticised for their reaction to the tragedy....... It's as simple as that....

    And Bhopal....... they had to be dragged through the courts before they were dragged kicking and scraming to pay a tiny tiny tiny fraction of BP's costs so far..
