UH OH, BP just discovered a billion barrels of oil in the Gulf of Mexico

The British energy company has discovered 1 billion barrels of oil at an existing oilfield in the Gulf of Mexico. BP also announced two new offshore oil discoveries and a major new investment in a nearby field.

BP now expects its fossil fuel output from the region to reach 400,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day by the middle of the next decade. Today, it produces about 300,000 boepd, up from less than 200,000 boepd about five years ago.

This will probably doom the Gulf of Mexico!

Fuck BP..HOW is it that they're still allowed to operate so much as a rowboat in the GoM, let alone drill for MOAR OILZ!

At this rate he won't live to see Russian oil turn a profit.
