Oil had been pouring out at a rate of 62,000 barrels a day - more than 12 times faster than BP originally admitted.
If BP is found guilty of negligence, the flow rate means, it could face up to 21 billion dollars in fines, fines of up to $1,100 for each barrel of oil spilled. If BP is found guilty of willful misconduct, the civil fine could be up to $4,300 per barrel.
2010.08.12 – Permanent Kill continues
Bad weather has delayed massive effort to permanently kill BP’s blown-out well in the Gulf of Mexico, an realy costly operation. The officials are beginning to scale back their response to one of the worst offshore oil spills in history. A temporary cap has kept oil from spewing and now they prepare for the “bottom kill,” which involves pumping mud and cement from a well deep underground for a permanent seal.
