BP BACKPEDAL: WE are not using dispersants, but NOT CERTAIN about others — “We have lots of contractors, but no one should be using them”


Oily mix and tar balls pollute waters near Dauphin Island, AL, National Resources Defense Council Switchboard, August 23, 2010:

[We spotted] huge plastic containers marked with Corexit warning labels on the dock public docks near Bayou La Batre. ...

The next day at a town hall meeting in Buras, LA, BP Mobile Incident Commander Keith Seilhan was asked about the use of chemical dispersants. “We are not using dispersants and haven’t been for some time,” he said.

But when asked whether contractors who operate in state waters could be, he said he could not be certain. “We have lots of contractors, but no one should be using them. If they are, we need to know about it and stop it.”

  • Since BP owns a major portion of Nalco, it's hard to believe that they would not know if their contractors were using dispersants.

    This entire situation in the GOM is beginning to make the Hurricane Katrina aftermath look like a PROFESSIONAL job in comparison!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • LIARS!

    @Betty S.

    I think you mean the GOM is starting to look like a bigger "professional" job than Katrina, right? Both are orchestrated disasters to the HILT! It's only meant to look like they are all bumbling idiots..Trust me, even the chaos is planned

    My oh my what tangled web we weave.
    Lies, lies, lies, Obama and his administration lie, congress lies, Senators lie, the coast guard lies, Bp Plc lies, they all lied and still do. The only one that actually was speaking the truth is dead! Uhhh makes you think doesn't it.

  • ehswan

    Why would anyone believe anything that BP, the EPA, NOAA, the coast guard or the Toy Boy Obama administration says. They have lied over and over again. Here's a true test of insanity. Believe that although they have lied to you over and over again, they are now telling the truth! If you do you are insane!

  • Why there is no one should be using those contractors?
