The topic of conversation of the discussion in relation to BP's substantial 2010 oil accident has shifted from the factors that caused the deadly problem to the company's struggle to plug a blown-out well as millions of gallons of crude oil gushed through the Gulf of Mexico for almost 3 months.The official trial's second phase opened on Monday amidst claims that BP could have capped the actual well much earlier if it had not overlooked many decades of warnings about the risks of a deep-water blowout or even withheld important details about the size of the leak from federal officials.The actual March 11th, blowout instigated an explosion which killed 11 people within the on Deepwater Horizon drilling rig and spawned the nation's worst overseas oil spill. BP utilized a capping stack to seal the well in September after other methods didn't work.John Barr, an attorney for residents and businesses who now claim they have been affected as a result of the spill, said BP treated the Gulf like its very own "private laboratory" as its engineers tried in vain to stop the movement of oil. BP devised a 600-page crude oil spill response plan that only actually included one page on "source control, " however it simply called for assembling a team of experts to devise a method to stop a blowout, Barr said.The 2nd phase is actually split into two parts: The inital phase, intended to last four days, centers on BP's initiatives to cap the actual well. The 2nd, expected to last four weeks, is designed to assist Barbier determine how much crude oil spilled in to the Gulf.The government's estimate accounts for some 70 million gallons more than exactly what BP says leaked. Deciding just how much oil leaked into the Gulf will help figure out the fines the oil company must pay. Billions of dollars are now at risk.During June, BP attempted in vain to use the "top kill" strategy to stop the actual stream of crude oil by pumping dirt and other natural compounds into the blowout preventer. Plaintiffs' lawyers claim BP realized the strategy was doomed to fail because of a higher flow rate estimates that the company did not share with federal officials during the time.One week after the spill started, high-ranking BP employee Doug Suttles told Coast Guard Sally Landry that this company knew that oil was moving at a rate of 1, 000 to 5,000 barrels each day. However the company's adversaries at the trial state BP's own internal documents and email messages show an effort to conceal much higher figures."BP's policy of not releasing the spill rate information was enforced at the highest levels of the organization, " Barr said, directing to an email that a BP worker sent to BP Exploration and Production CEO Andy Inglis and his assistant on June 15th. The employee, Jake Mason, cautioned them that they ought to be "very cautious" standing behind the low estimate because his team's models showed estimates which were as much as 20 times higher.
