Leaking “bubbles” not yet tested by BP for presence of methane or oil; Reporter asks “What’s the hold up?”


"Complex operation to go capture bubbles"

Doug Suttles (for Kent Wells) Technical Briefing, BP Technical Update, July 18, 2010 @ 8:30am EST:

NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO: When you said that you are attempting to test the bubbles coming out... it's not clear to me, has a sample been taken? If not, what is the hold up with getting that sample?

DOUG SUTTLES, BP: It's a complex operation to go capture bubbles... So weve been doing the planning to (inaudible) send the equipment to the seabed... We are attempting to do that but we have not yet captured those samples.
