CG Tells BP to Come Up with Better Plan

Monday, June 14, 2010

According to a June 12 report from Nola.com, the Coast Guard has told BP that the system the company has developed for capturing oil gushing from a collapsed Gulf rig isn't big enough and won't be expanded fast enough. Responding to a plan BP submitted last week to improve and expand the performance of its containment cap system, Rear Adm. James Watson, the federal on-scene coordinator, said the giant company must do better. In light of the estimate released June 10 by a federal panel of scientists who said the amount of oil flowing into the Gulf of Mexico could be 20,000 to 40,000 barrels a day -- double the previous estimates - BP's plan is insufficient, Watson said in a letter dated June.
