    Fun Facts We Will Learn at Trial!

    Fun Fact: BP spent zero dollars before Macondo preparing a deepwater oil spill.

    Here's a trivia question for the happy BP longs - who said this after Macondo: “The ability to intervene in the subsea was not in any way, shape or form, complete"??

    Guesses? Here's a clue, he also said "I want my life back."

    Fun Fact: Before Macondo, BP had no capability to respond to a spill in deep water. Staff had no training, or even conducted a drill.

    Fun Fact: In April 2010, BP said "best estimate" of the flow was 2,500 barrels per day. Its internal estimate was 2,500-65,000 bbl/day.

    Fun Fact: Internal BP emails showed that "top kill" to bring well under control would fail if flow rate over 15K bbl/day. BP said top kill would be "slam dunk."

    What gives? Barbier's going to get a heaping helping of BP jumbalya lies this week.

    Where's the popcorn, this will be good.

    • I wonder if we will learn about the "fun fact" that the Government demanded a flow meter on the cap? Never been done before. Silly or criminal? It postponed capping the well for several days. The result was a bigger spill so the government could levy a higher fine. Who cleaned up this knowingly, willingly, intentionally created spill? The government? Are any government officials going to jail for this planned spill? Its amazing. In fact government officials wants BP to pay a fine for every BBL the government itself intentionally dumped into the Gulf....and this same government claims with a straight face to be concerned about the environment in the Gulf. Hahahaha.

    • Here's another fun fact: The US government has spent zero dollars on military operations in that past 50 years. Whats the point in these ridiculous statements Vikki? I can come and testify how many hours I spent in the last 15 years preparing for deep sea oil spills. You think I worked for free? and how about all the other SRT members? All volunteers? All for free? Common...BP's preps for oil spill are huge, all over the world.
