Earlier today, oil company BP released a 30-second video of one of the breaches in the Deepwater Horizon well that is sending thousands of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico each day. BP made the video on Tuesday at the request of the White House and the U.S. Coast Guard.
The footage shows one of the breaches in the destroyed well of the (former) Deepwater Horizon oil rig, which exploded on 20 April. Since then, oil and gas have been spewing from these breaches like geysers. Evidence thus far points to massive failures of numerous safety and containment features on board the Deepwater Horizon rig, which were meant to prevent such a disastrous geyser of oil and gas. Oil that gushed forth weeks ago is now washing ashore in places like Port Eads, Louisiana. All the oil from the geyser filmed yesterday won’t reach shores for weeks to come, and tomorrow will bring more.
