It stemmed from the company's decision to keep producing and selling gasoline while it attempted repairs on a key piece of equipment, according to BP officials and Texas regulators. BP says it failed to detect the extent of the emissions for several weeks. It discovered the scope of the problem only after analyzing data from a monitor that measures emissions from a flare 300 feet above the ground that was supposed to incinerate the toxic chemicals. The company now estimates that 538,000 pounds of chemicals escaped from the refinery while it was replacing the equipment. These included 17,000 pounds of benzene, a known ...
the Red Sea has a surface area of roughly 438,000 km² (169,100 square miles ). It is about 2250 km (1398 miles) long and, at its widest point, is 355 km (220.6 miles) wide. It has a maximum depth of 2211 metres (7254 feet) in the central median trench, and an average depth of 490 metres (1,608 feet). However, there are also extensive shallow shelves, noted for their marine life and corals . The sea is the habitat of over 1,000 invertebrate species, and 200 soft and hard corals.

To fix most of the problems with the earliest offshore wells, you would probably have needed nothing more sophisticated than a snorkel – even the first platform to be established out of sight of land, off the coast of Louisiana in 1847, stood in just 16ft of water. But the easy stuff has now been found, and the industry is being forced to explore ever-further frontiers. In 2002, less than one barrel of oil in 30 came from more than 1,000ft down; by 2012, it will be one in 10. Already, such deep-sea sources account for nearly three quarters of the Gulf of Mexico's oil. BP's ill-fated well was far from the deepest in the ... market research, surveys and trends
Oil Spill report + TEDxOilSpill + Design proposal "Protei"
 in Cambridge, Boston MA USA. I was asked to lead a research group (about 10 researchers) to develop a technology to address the on-going  BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill  in the  Gulf of Mexico . After spending too much time in  Cambridge  (about 3 weeks) I went to study first hand what was happening in the Gulf of Mexico. This is a report of what I could observe the 24th and 26th of June around  Grand-Isle  and  Venice  and some notes of the  TEDxOilSpill  in Washington DC the 28th of June 2010. Some Images  are also from the  TEDxOilSpill Expedition  and other permitted medias. My notes are made from the standpoint of view of ... market research, surveys and trends


The details on Obama's just-released energy plan | Grist
Our nation is confronted by two major energy challenges -- global climate change and our dependence on foreign oil -- both of which stem from our current dependence on fossil fuels for energy. America's 20 million-barrel-a-day oil habit costs our economy $1.4 billion a day, and nearly $500 billion in 2006 alone. Every single hour we spend $41 million on foreign oil. America's oil consumption increased by over 20 percent between 1992 and 2005. Our energy-related carbon dioxide emissions increased by more than 15 percent between 1993 and 2005. Global warming is real, is happening now and is the result of human ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

BP's Risky Business
An oil company ignores standard safety procedures and fails to fix crucial equipment, and a huge oil spill occurs. The corporation minimizes the environmental impact and reacts slowly to the accident. The local community is infuriated by the lack of response. The company is stingy about giving out information and data on the spill. The CEO seems arrogant, and aloof. Instead of appearing concerned about the accident, his statements plead for public sympathy. The Chairman seems unprepared to deal with the emergency and uninformed about the workings of his own company. The corporation seems unable to demonstrate they would ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Out for the day: In the oilfields of Lambton County
Now that summer is here, we can use the long days to make excursions farther afield. And one interesting, but not so well known, destination is the Oil Heritage area near Petrolia. A two-hour drive west along Highway 401 to London, then onward along Highway 402, brings you into Lambton County. Go south for a short fifteen kilometres on the Oil Heritage Road (County Road 21 South) and you will come to the town of Petrolia and the nearby village of Oil Springs. Here, at an attraction called Petrolia Discovery and then at the Oil Museum of Canada, you can learn the little known story of oil in Ontario. Petrolia Discovery is a ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
