North Sea Tanker Sent to Gulf Spill

Friday, June 11, 2010

According to a June 11 report from The Age, BP is sending a giant oil tanker from its North Sea operations off the Shetland Islands to help with the clean-up operation in the Gulf of Mexico as thousands of barrels of oil collected from its leaking well on the ocean floor threaten to overwhelm the capacity of its US vessels. The move came as the company revealed it had spent about $1.43b on efforts to contain the oil spill and related costs.
