BP’s Bob Dudley took questions from PBS and from public on Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The meeting was aired on PBS and posted on YouTube.
Dudley says he saw reports about fractured sea bed and uncontrolled oil flows at sea floor, including the Russian report circulated recently, but BP’s ROVs do not support this information.
Below is quote from the video transcript (video below) regarding fractured sea floor:
Time Stamp 49min:21sec — >> DUDLEY: I’ve seen some of those reports. We’ve actually taken the ROVs and looked around to see if that’s right. That persists. There’s — I’ve saw a Russian report that said that the seabed was permanently fractured and that there were submarines down there that knew that. I mean, there’s some pretty unusual reports out there. But there’s no evidence at all about fractured seabed and uncontrollable oil.
