14 Year Oil Leak In Gulf Still Going



New estimates put on the 14 year oil leak at the Taylor Energy Co. well could be as much as  29,000 gallons of oil per day. 

MC-20 Saratoga platform was destroyed by Hurricane Ivan on Sept. 15, 2004. The storm triggered an underwater mudslide that snapped the 550-foot-tall platform’s legs and buried a cluster of wells. Taylor plugged some of the 28 wells and added three containment domes.

Several environmental groups have for years disputed Taylor’s claim that its multimillion-dollar containment effort had limited pollution to just a trickle.
