Despite Multiple Methane And Oil Leaks From BOP and Sea Floor Feds Allow BP To Risk Uncontrolled BP Gulf Oil Spill Blowout
To make matters worse there is now evidence that the condition of the Blowout Preventer is now beginning to deteriorate.
Thad Allen has repeatedly given reassurances to the public that the cap would be opened to relieve any pressure immediately if there were any sign of loss of well integrity.
Yet despite overwhelming evidence that the integrity of both the well and the BOP has been compromised the Federal Government has decided to allow BP to keep the well closed a move that is all reward and no risk for BP.
Thad Allen agreed to allow the well to remain capped for at least another 24 hours in a statement issued earlier today to the press to clear up any ambiguity about what the Government tests found yesterday.
