Seepages near the leaking BP oil well 'may be natural'

So this is one way that BP can get around their creation...by calling floor seapage natural.

Can we seriously believe this ?


Seepages on the sea floor near the leaking Gulf of Mexico oil well may be unrelated to the well itself, the government's incident commander says.

Adm Thad Allen said there were concerns over three areas of "anomaly" during monitoring for a pressure test on the well.

Some seepage, 3km (1.9 miles) from the well head, had caused concern.
Another area of concern is nearer to the well head. And the third cause for concern is bubbles of gas and small quantities of oil coming from a flange on the blowout preventer.

www.bbc.co.uk...

As we al know, natural seepage does occur, but I find it immensly odd that they should suddenly announce this right now. Especially as they are continuing the test of the pressure in the line.

And they're considering another top kill attempt too !!!

Good find. I love the speculative title of this article.

Death may be natural too but that does not mean it is time

It's to absolve the government of any further damage and remove blame for evacuations. See the attached post.www.abovetopsecret.com...

I guess they forget they are streaming ROV cams online.Those cameras are watched 24/7. I guess they figured that they failed once they will just keep going until the finally get it right. Yes it is very odd that only now they say something about seepage from the floor. They are very predictable as to what you are going to hear from these updates they put out.

it's like they make it up as they go along, knowing that there is a vast majority of people who will sit there and say 'oh yeah, never thought of that..must be true then....'

It's the same old gumf we keep hearing from every major situation where they all wriggle their way out of the issue.

Now we know where all their profit goes..It goes to pay people to write this stuff when they need it..

Well I'm sure they still pocket their fair share amount of profit, sadly. That being said, wasn't there an article or number that said how much $$$ the Bush administration spent on the media? This was a few years ago, would be interesting to see how much the current administration spends $.

This is what I don't really get on ATS. Ok, its a conspiracy site I get that!

But your suggesting that they are lying and the leaks are actually caused by the capping of the well? Is that what you are suggesting?

You haven't really provided anything of value with this post except

"Oh they are lying to us again!"

Ok... Maybe they are. At least theorize as to why they might be lying, whats your take on their reasons for lying, your take on why you personally suspect the leaks in the seafloor to be anything other than natural leaks, your take on the implications of "un-natural" leaks, what caused them, and what are the dangers?

Please don't make posts and just say "They're lying" or "how can we believe this".. It doesn't add anything substantial any form of mature analysis of the situation in the Gulf.

Sorry if I sounded rude with saying this

its to absolve BP of any further damage, not the Govt.

Rest assured the Govt will be blamed either way, regardless.

Agreed. Even though i more or less agree with the OP, there certainly seems to be some confusion between 'evidence' and speculation in this sub forum for this entire debacle.

Just because someone questions your sources and evidence doesnt mean they are attacking you. It just means we are ALL trying to pin down something resembling truth, and in order to do so, we have to use the appropriate words.

I mean, look at the words BP is using. "may be natural'. That is an accurate statement, It 'may' be. It also 'may not' be.

We just dont know, and they (BP) are certainly going to rely on knowing that it will be essentially impossible to prove in a court of law (you know, the justice system, which is the only hope we have of prosecuting these guys) that anything was 'caused' by this. It will all be just speculation and finger-pointing, which, as much as we would like to believe is enough to prosecute, just isnt.

Its not necessarily bad intentions by ATSers. Its just laziness with language.

Use the right words.

Like you are writing a paper for peer review, about to be torn apart by your colleagues for the betterment of your theory.

Clearly they havent 'forgotten' about the ROV's. Notice how there is no recorded images of the 'seep' in question?

Yes, there are images of 'seeps' of some kind, but we dont know what or where.

If ATSers want to pretend they have BP by the balls, they might want to step their game up a bit more.

Its one thing to 'know' for yourself and your friends, its another to have irrefutable proof as evidence in a larger public discourse.

I have seen images of seeps, and images of blurry cameras, but i have yet to see images of the massive crack many are referring to. Ive seen more references to evidence than ive seen actual evidence.

bullfeathers, bullfeathers, bullfeathers.

Nothing BP or Allen has ever said has turned out to be accurate.

This will not be proven to be the first time.

This is far from over.

BP will sell its assets, and declare bankruptcy protection, and screw everyone it can, to protect its shareholders.

$20 billion fund, nothing is in it until September at best, and then $5 billion a year for another 3 years.

Who wants to bet this will not happen?

Call me loony.
