China: ConocoPhillips oil spills due to negligence http://www.cbs3springfield.com/story/16016905...
The government has already ordered the company to stop all production pending a full cleanup and review to ensure no more oil seeps into the sea.
The administration said Friday that the oil spill covered 2,400 square miles (6200 sq. kilometers) of water surface. It said that the company violated requirements that had been laid out in an environmental impact assessment report reducing the ability to respond to emergencies, causing oil spill from one side.
It was not immediately clear what measures the government would take, or the response it expected from ConocoPhillips, but the Oceanic Administration has said it plans to pursue legal action over the spills, including losses to regional fisheries.
China's maritime authorities contend that ConocoPhillips failed to meet an Aug. 31 deadline for permanently staunching and cleaning up the spills. The company says it met the deadline and has contended that any oil still seeping from the wells, which have been sealed, is residual from the earlier spills, which released about 700 barrels of oil and 2,500 barrels of mineral oil-based drilling mud - used as a lubricant for drilling.
Environmental experts say measures to cut back on effluent from factories and mining and to expand sewage treatment have failed to keep pace with the fast expansion of industries and oil drilling in the Bohai Bay, leading to the decimation of seafood and fish stocks and frequent red tides.
From the first reports Conoco Phillips lied. The company part of the old Rockefeller Empire still hides behind lies today. The company is not about to tell the truth for that is not in their self-interest. Now that the bad deeds done gone wrong Conoco Phillips will turn all acts of hiding the guilt over to their legions of crooked lawyers to settle. What will be the end result ---- I suppose those that provided fish to eat from the Bohai Bay will suffer from want and those that try to eat the fish will die.
Exxon Valdez payments still due from long ago now is being denied by the company. So those reading go figure!
