    Why in the world the deep water horizon was ever allowed to drill directly over those salt domes is totally baffeling. Of all the places they could have chosen to drill. I wonder if the offshore salt domes are used like the land based salt domes to store some of the strategic oil reserves? If so even more of a stupid idea to drill there.

      Time and everyone here: no one drilled that area cause it was too dangerous of a site to drill in being a shale type rock layer and many companies knew of the pressures and methane and everything around that area but here was a LITTLE MAN wit GREED that decided to make a name for himself,being the FIRST to drill the largest oil deposit in the world. Second theory to cause the one world government a way to ELE of people.

    I am getting sick of these factless reports. I am about to copyright the word UNKNOWN just so I can piss back onto the feet of the officials giving us this crap. Today, I feel like the hydrant, tomorrow, I may just be the dog.

  • Looks to me like the word 'unknown' is being used since the letters BP are also used ..
