IXTOC leak was 1,350,000 GALLONS PER DAY. Wellhead pressure was ONLY 5000 PSI.But BP pressure is between 50,000 AND 160,000 PSI. HOW COULD THE LEAK ONLY BE 210,000 GALLONS PER DAY ?GEE, BP DOESN'T HAVE ANY REASON TO LIE, DO THEY ??
Don't bother sensible people with idiocy. Flowrate depends on orifice size and pressure (amongst other things but that enough to start with)
70,000 barrels a day adds up,huh?
