BP report shows it spilled less oil in 2010 than in 2008

BP Report Won’t Name Spill Figures; TNK-BP Announces Efficiency Projects, Environmental Leader, March 28, 2011:

BP, in its first corporate sustainability report since the Deepwater Horizon disaster, has refused to put a figure on the amount of oil leaked or CO2 emitted in the spill.

Page one of the report lists figures for volume of oil spilled, CO2 emitted and methane released in 2010 (see chart), but these figures don’t include the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the company noted.

As a result, the figures show BP spilling less oil in 2010 than in 2008, Fast Company reported.

BP said that it left these numbers out because of a lack of definitive figures. “Although there are several third-party estimates of the flow rate or total volume of oil spilled from the Deepwater Horizon incident, we believe that no accurate determination can be made or reported until further information is collected and the analysis, such as the condition of the blowout preventer, is completed,” the report said. …

    BP claims processing CEO to raise money for Gov. Bobby Jindal
    Monday, March 28, 2011

    BATON ROUGE — The head of a Hammond-based firm that is handling oil spill claims processing for BP is hosting the latest fund-raising event for Gov. Bobby Jindal.

    The $1,000 a plate cocktail reception — the “host” level costs $5,000 — is being held Tuesday at the offices of Worley Catastrophe Response, and hosted by the company’s chief executive, Mike Worley.

    Worley has handled claims on behalf of BP, and later the Gulf Coast Claims Facility, since shortly after the April 20 Deepwater Horizon explosion and subsequent oil spill.

    Jindal’s spokesman, Kyle Plotkin, said the governor sees nothing inappropriate about the event. “Obviously the governor is running for re-election, and he wants the support of all people in Louisiana,” Plotkin said.

    This is like a Grade-B movie. BP is about to buy the governorship of Louisiana.
    This works perfect for the BP/Gov..
    …IF they can keep the oil/corexit disaster from showing..
    ..BUT they won’t be able to..
    Hopefully..by election time the people will realize they are being lied to and will vote against this guy..even if they vote for Bozo the Clown..
    …because that’s about how it is…!

    What kind of dumbazz facts are these. This all started to get out of control when big corp was being bailed out and the government said you don’t need to count your losses…duh of course a company will show profits if it doesn’t have to include losses.
    ‘these figures don’t include the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the company noted’.
    DING DING DING we have a winner, see what I mean. Of course it will show less if you don’t count the grand daddy of them all. What educated person (not paid off) would give any amount of credibility to something that doesn’t even provide the entire scenario. These people are becoming more and more brazen with their delinquency.
    I want to use faulty figures like that when I file taxes..Wait, it doesn’t work for the little guys.
