could there be a terrorist threat or treatment for oil slick gone wrong?
BP, the Coast Guard and the Minerals Management Service are jointly considering an experimental technique of applying an oil dispersant underwater, directly at the source of the Deepwater Horizon oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico.
Industry experts and officials at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have been called upon to examine whether this method of applying dispersant will be more effective in controlling the leaking oil.
If approved, it will be the first time in U.S. history that oil dispersant has been applied at the subsea source of a spill.
