Gulf of Mexico clean-up makes spill 52 times more toxic

Mixing Oil With Dispersant Increased Toxicity to Ecosystems Article from Georgia Tech   Nov. 30, 2012 — If the 4.9 million barrels of oil that spilled into the Gulf of Mexico during the 2010 Deep Water Horizon spill was a ecological disaster, the two million gallons of dispersant used to clean it up apparently made it even worse — 52-times more toxic. That’s according to new research from the Georgia Institute of Technology and Universidad Autonoma de Aguascalientes (UAA), Mexico.

About All Energy Corp. / Princess Petroleum Belize Joint Venture 1

Major oil discoveries have been made within the Yucatan area. Much of the geology of Belize, especially in the northern half of the country, is a southward extension of the geology of the Yucatan. Petroleum deposits in south-eastern Mexico and Guatemala occur in two main geologic provinces, the Gulf Coast Tertiary basin area and the Petén Basin.

Over its lifetime, a single oil rig can: Dump more than 90,000 metric tons of drilling fluid and metal cuttings into the ocean; Drill between 50-100 wells, each dumping 25,000 pounds of toxic metals, such as lead, chromium and mercury, and potent carcinogens like toluene, benzene, and xylene into the ocean Pollute […]
