As engineers bore deeper into the seafloor toward the source of the oil still spewing into the Gulf of Mexico, BP PLC is growing more confident that the relief well it expects to complete in August will succeed where all previous efforts to contain or kill the gusher have failed.

But what if it doesn't work?

At the very least, oil would continue to spill while workers try something else.

That proposition would surely bring more misery for the people who live, work and play along the shores from Louisiana to Florida.

And consider this: Chief Executive Tony Hayward said in June that the reservoir of oil is believed to hold about 2.1 billion gallons of oil. If the problem was never fixed, it could mean another two years of oil spilling based on the current flow rate until the reservoir is drained.

That doesn't sound right... really only 2 years if we left it as is? Somehow I doubt that.

I bet one of their plans is to just rename the Gulf of Mexico to something else... that way they can say there is no Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico!

BAM... Problem solved!

More than 2 years!

What kind of retarded facts is that!



The REAL SIZE OF THE RESERVOIR IS BETWEEN 1 AND 10 BILLION BARRELS.

At the current rate of let's say 100.000 barrels/day...

It would take between 27 YEARS AND 270 YEARS.

Here's the math

2 years = 730

I rounded the estimate to two billion

2,000,000,000/730 = 2,739,726 per day!

waaaht

Edit to add:

I figured the sum in Barrels

BP said this is the largest oil reservoir ever found, so I'd have to say there is more than two billion barrels in that field...a hell of alot more!
