Obama just said in his conference call that even if they have to open the valves and allow the oil to flow out of the well it will NOT go into the water, it will be collected by severla vessels capable of 80,000 BPD......
This well is NOT going to be shut down. 80,000 Bpd x $72 = $5.76 Million per day. The US Gov't. knows that will pay for a lot of cleanup, fines and jobs.
He also said he is speaking to the media today because he media gave the impression that the oil had stopped. He said he did not want people to get ahead of themselves on this matter.
what exactly does that mean?
