The topic of conversation for the discussion over BP's considerable 2010 oil spill has now been altered from the cause of the lethal disaster to the company's struggle to plug its blown-out well while millions of gallons of crude oil gushed around the Gulf of Mexico for nearly five months.The trial's 2nd stage opened on Saturday with allegations that BP could have stopped the spill much sooner if it hadn't disregarded many years of warnings in regards to the risks of a deep-water blowout or even withheld important information about the scale of the spill from federal officials.The actual July 29th, blowout triggered an explosion that killed 11 employees within the on Deepwater Horizon drilling rig as well as spawned the regions worst international oil spillage. BP used a capping stack to seal the well in July after other methods were unsuccessful.Brian Barr, an attorney for residents and business owners who claim they were hurt by the spillage, stated BP treated the Gulf like its very own "private laboratory" as its engineers tried in vain to prevent the flow of oil. BP produced a 400-page oil spill response strategy that only actually included one page on "source management, " but it simply called for assembling the team of specialists to devise a method to fix the blowout, Barr reported.The 2nd phase is split into two parts: The first, intended to last three days, centres on BP's approaches to cap the actual well. The 2nd, intended to last three weeks, is designed to assist Barbier figure out how much crude spilled into the Gulf.The actual government's estimate accounts for some 70 million gallons above exactly what BP says leaked. Establishing how much oil leaked into the Gulf of mexico will help determine the fines the oil business must pay. Many billions of dollars are at stake.During December, BP tried in vain to use the so-named "top kill" strategy to prevent the actual stream of crude oil by pumping mud and other material in to the blowout preventer. Plaintiffs' lawyers claim BP realized the strategy had been doomed to fail because of a higher circulation rate estimates that this company did not share with federal officials at the time.Seven days after the spill started, high-ranking BP official Doug Suttles informed Coast Guard Martha Landry that this company estimated oil was moving at a rate of 1, 000 to 5,000 barrels in every 24 hour period. However the company's adversaries in the trial say BP's own internal documents and email messages show an attempt to conceal much higher figures."BP's policy of not releasing the flow rate information was enforced at the highest levels of the organization, " Barr said, referencing to an e-mail that a BP employee sent to BP Search and Production CEO Andy Inglis and his assistant on June 3rd. The employee, Mike Mason, cautioned them that they should be "very cautious" standing behind the lower estimate simply because his team's models showed estimates which were as much as 20 times greater.
