  •  Rate of outflow reduction since riser cut! (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    Lorikeet

    The consensus outflow was increased to 40,000 - 60,000 bbl/d since the riser was cut (BPs high-res video, sensors at the outflow, etc.). And today the Coast Guard is giving a capture rate of 25,000 bbl/day. In that case, the rate of out-flow since the riser cut has been reduced in the range of:

              25,000/60,000 - 25,000/40,000 bbl/day

                              or

                       42%  -  62.5%
