Report: BP to restart deepwater drilling in Gulf
Report: BP to restart deepwater drilling in Gulf

In a deal with U.S. regulators, BP this summer plans to restart deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico on 10 wells in exchange for tougher safety rules, British media reported Sunday.

The London-based oil giant promised to abide by rules that are stricter than guidelines set after the April 20, 2010, blast on the Deepwater Horizon rig that killed 11 workers, The Financial Times and The Sunday Times of London reported. The accident, which released almost 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, was the largest marine spill in U.S. history.

BP confirmed it had provided very detailed plans, the U.K. Press Association said Sunday.

6. I know, if anyone doubted our government has been bought and paid
for by corporations, this should erase any of those doubts.

3. They need to drill 2 wells
at the same time, a relief well it is the only way they can guarantee a blow out won't happen again. Blow out preventers only work 40% of the time.
