The Macondo well was in operation for only a few months, BP only owned rights to Macondo for a few years. Why do we have to read such absolute nonsense on these boards?
"On 7 October 2009 the Transocean Marianas semi-submersible rig commenced drilling, but operations were halted at 4,023 feet (1,226 m) below the sea floor on 29 November 2009, when the rig was damaged by Hurricane Ida. The Transocean Deepwater Horizon rig resumed drilling operations in February 2010"
The explosion was in APRIL. There is no way this well accounted for 30% of BP's huge revenues.
the rig was estimated to be able to provide 12000 to 19000 barrels per day through the blow out preventer alone...with a maximum of 25000 per day. Lets just say 12000 per day multiply it times todays price per barrel $74.60 12000b X $74.60= $895200.00 per day times JUST 200 days per year is only $179,040,000.00 per year so no your right....it wont hurt BP at all....google it yourself (due diligence GOOGLE that too)
