Chevron Error Caused Rio de Janeiro Oil Spill

The company accidentally used a kind of mud in its drilling that did not have the right weight needed to contain the oil, which rose from the well and spilled onto the ocean surface. The spill has been contained and did not spread to the beaches.

“The reservoir pressure was underestimated,” said George Buck, president of Chevron Brazil.

The mud has to be heavier to prevent oil from escaping from the well being drilled. The problem was reported to the Brazilian National Petroleum Agency, ANP, within 24 hours as required. The oil leaked happened on the ocean floor, about 2,279 meters from the surface, and escaped through a break in the lining of the top of the well at a depth of 560 meters, the company said.

MY TAKE

Exxon Mobil led the cause to put together a fix for more blowouts that might come along as the BP Macondo. The name of the group was MWCC. They put on a dog and pony show for Minerals Management or BOMERE and they unwittingly bought into that design. Chevron was a part of that not for profit enterprise.

Following is their Webb site it is the hoax of jokes

Chevron has been caught lying by the Brazilian authorities now what will they do now? I contend they have yet to tell the truth. For what they have declared to be the truth now is not consistent with oil and gas common knowledge.

The truth may very well be the BOP did not work during the blow out and they diverted the fluid below the rig floor.
