Update: BP says that they are now collecting 15,000 bbl/day.. well that should be 100% then, but oil is still leaking! So they said between 13,000
and 19,000 and I used 15,000.. but we were also told of a possible 20% increase after they cut the pipe.. so that would have a new range of 15,600 -
22,800. We know it is more that 15,000, so if we keep with BP and the government's estimates.. it must be closer to 20,000 bbl/day (or more). This
changes all the calculations I did earlier in the thread based on 15,000 bbl/day. I wish we had people working on calculating the flow rate.. we need
to know how much oil is out there!
By the way.. we now know what the psi is at the well head! 12,000 psi - Amazing!
