Statement by Federal On-Scene Coordinator on BP’s Latest Containment Strategies, June 14, 2010

GULF COAST—(ENEWSPF)—June 14, 2010Federal On-Scene Coordinator Rear Admiral James Watson today issued the following statement regarding BP’s latest containment strategies:

“After being directed to move more quickly, BP is now stepping up its efforts to contain the leaking oil. They have now outlined a path to contain more than 50,000 barrels of oil per day by the end of June, two weeks earlier than they originally suggested. Their revised plan also includes methods to achieve even greater redundancy beyond the month of June, to better allow for bad weather or unforeseen circumstances.  We have continuously demanded strategies and responses from BP that fit the realities of this catastrophic event, for which BP is responsible.  We will continue to hold them accountable and bring every possible resource and innovation to bear.”
