So any of you who may own BP stock - bwahahahahahaaha.

I know that was uncalled for, but the damned attorneys already are on local tv with commercials for anyone affected by the Horizon Rig disaster.

A couple of shrimper here in the Vermilion Bay area are already filling lawsuits.

This gives a generalization of what is being done at the spill/drill site:

This map gives you an idea of how the spill/drill site looks now:

Here is a file photo of the Transocean Development Drill III that will be on site Monday to begin drilling a relief well, which will take weeks to do:

Here is schematic of where the leaks are and why it is important to close the BOP:

And here is NOAA forecast model of the slick:

Please remeber that this oil is un-refined and is a naturally occuring substance produced by mother nature.

An oil is any substance that is liquid at ambient temperatures and is hydrophobic but soluble in organic solvents. Oils have a high carbon and hydrogen content and are nonpolar substances. The general definition above includes compound classes with otherwise unrelated chemical structures, properties and uses, including vegetable oils, petrochemical oils, and volatile essential oils. All oils can be traced back to organic sources.

This satellite image from yesterday shows the oil spill off the Louisiana Coast resulting from the explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig. Late reports last night indicated that the oil had reached the mouth of the Mississippi River.
The leak is reportedly 5,000 barrels per day, or about 200,000 gallons. If you think about it by volume, this doesn’t seem like a lot. A 1 acre lake, 4 feet deep, contains 1.4 million gallons of water. So, it would take a week of the oil leak continuing to fill up a small lake. But, oil is less dense than water, with a density 87% what water is. So, the oil floats up on top of the water and spreads out quickly (a drop of gasoline spilled in a lake can create a slick 1 foot across). So far, the oil slick has covered hundreds of square miles.
I’m not an oceanographer, but I do understand that the wind plays a major role in where the oil goes. Until yesterday, most of the oil had stayed out in the open ocean. However, SE winds have picked up ahead of the next slow-moving storm system to affect the region, and this is moving some of the oil toward the Louisiana Coast. Some computer models indicate, and it makes sense given the winds over the Gulf, that the oil will continue to move toward Louisiana and eventually Mississippi this weekend, and could reach the Alabama or Florida coast early next week. But, like I said, I’m not an oceanographer, and there are websites out there tracking the oil.
Governor Riley said today that booms, or floating devices that contain oil spills, are being deployed to try to keep the oil from reaching the Alabama shoreline. I hope it works. Other options that have been tried are burning off some of the oil, and aerial spraying of dispersive liquids (soap?). In any event, this will likely be an environmental disaster somewhere along the coast.

you can help out Smile

Quote:MOBILE, Alabama - The Mobile Bay National Estuary Program is collecting contact information of those interested in volunteering to help clean up potential impacts of the oil spill to Alabama’s coastline. While it is unclear what volunteer action will be required, the MBNEP will gather information from potential volunteers to ensure a quick response to wildlife and habitat impacts when necessary.

“We are on standby with Unified Command and will follow their cues as to when and where we should take action,” said MBNEP director Roberta Swann. “In the meantime, we’re encouraging individuals interested in participating in a clean-up effort to contact us with their information so that we will be ready to provide on-the-ground assistance as quickly as possible.”

Interested volunteers are asked to provide contact information to the MBNEP office by phone at 251- 431-6409 or by email to [email protected]. Updates about volunteer efforts can be found at MBNEP’s website, http://www.mobilebaynep.com.

The MBNEP’s mission is to lead the wise stewardship of water quality and living resources of the Mobile Bay and Tensaw Delta. The MBNEP serves as a catalyst for activities of estuary stakeholders, helping to build community-based organizational capacity for sound resource management and leveraging commitment and investment to ensure the estuary’s sustainability. For more information about this program, please contact the MBNEP office at 251.431.6409.
