Looks like BP has another platform that could further mess up the gulf.

Whistleblower: BP Oil Platform Faces 'Present and Imminent Danger'
Whistleblower claims about BP's Atlantis filed this week argue against Bureau of Ocean Energy Management's claims platform is safe

- Common Dreams staff
A whistleblower who has a standing lawsuit against BP has argued this week that the company's Atlantis Project, located 150 miles south of New Orleans in the Gulf of Mexico, faces "present and imminent danger."

The whistleblower, Kenneth Abbott, is a former BP contractor on the Atlantis. His lawsuit says that BP failed to keep required records of the safety systems for the Atlantis.


Back in 2010, Food & Water Watch, which joined Abbott's lawsuit, warned that the massive Deepwater Horizon oil disaster foreshadowed another Gulf of Mexico disaster caused by BP's Atlantis platform. At that time, Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director of Food & Water Watch, said, “We have evidence that Atlantis is unsafe and is in danger of creating an even worse spill than the one caused by the Deepwater Horizon explosion.”


Here is some info.

This has been out there for a least a couple of years. It's obvious nothing is going to be done to fix it.

What is going to be done is to wait and see if disaster strikes.Sad but the reality of how the wheels turn.

Yeah?
Well if we keep forgetting this stuff, we will have the prophecied results to then clean up........!
S&F for the reminder, and it is somehow lacking that we dont have some recurring prompts on ATS to keep digging into unanswered questions.....
Often new info does not get spread around.....
Old situations go cold, and get swept under the rug, leaving the victims to fend for themselves after the reporters and the photo ops are gone....
Witness the dead neighbourhoods of New orleans, Detroit, ad nauseum.....
The refusal to learn from experience which, the present intelligencia seem to cling to, in an insane hope that repeated activity will bring different results........
The big guys win because they are eternal organisations, and we on the other hand, eventually die.....
Distort the focus of the people, and you can lead them further and further into darkness.....
One day they will wake up, and all the lights will be out........................

They better get on the ball with this one. Not sure they can afford another incident. Then again, they only get a slap on the wrist...
