Low estimate of oil spill's size could save BP millions in court

Low estimate of oil spill's size could save BP millions in court 20 May 2010 The disputed official estimate that only 5,000 barrels of oil are leaking daily from a runaway well in the Gulf of Mexico could save BP millions of dollars in damages when the financial impact of the spill is resolved in court, legal experts say. One month after a surge of gas from the undersea well engulfed the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling rig in flames and triggered the massive leak that now threatens sea life, fisheries and tourist centers in five Gulf coast states, neither BP nor the federal government has yet to measure at the source the amount of crude pouring into the water. BP and the Obama administration [both lying sacks of sh*t] have said they did not want to take the measurements for fear of interfering with efforts to stanch the leaks.
