BP Oil Cap Pressure Readings Leave Scientists Puzzled

July 19, 2010

The containment dome over the blown well in the Gulf left scientists puzzled after a day of testing gave inconclusive readings on the pressure build beneath the cap.  Engineers expected the pressure to be much higher than it is, leading them to believe there could be a leak in the sea bed.  Another reason is that the reservoir could be much lower than they were thinking.

While the leak remains the focus, even with full containment the situation in the Gulf is far from being fixed.  There is still a vast amount of oil in the Gulf itself.  The coast is literally a disaster.  Fishermen who have been in the region for generations must now leave to find employment elsewhere.  The ecosystem in the Gulf is forever changed.
