Tampa Bay Oil Spill - Oil Nearby?

Florida Oil Spill   Attorney Lawyer,
Tampa Bay Oil Spill -
Oil Nearby?
Breaking News - "Oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill, floating beneath the surface after being sprayed with dispersant, settled on a shelf 80 miles from the Tampa Bay region within a year of the spill's end, according to a scientific study published this week."

"The Corexit broke the oil down into small drops, creating underwater plumes of oil, something no one had ever seen before in an oil spill. The discovery of the plumes raised questions about how they would affect sea life in the gulf."

Any fix for this?

One expert told the St. Pete Times, "It made its way southeast across the bottom and eventually it gets to the beach," Weisberg said. "A little bit probably got into Tampa Bay, and a little bit probably got into Sarasota Bay, and it exited the Florida shelf down around the Dry Tortugas."

Outrageous | Florida Will Not Sue TransOcean Rig Owner

Florida Oil Spill Attorney believes It is now clear Governor Rick Scott is in bed with the corporations on yet another issue. The deadline to sue is tomorrow and the smiling Gov announced Florida Will Not Sue TransOcean Rig Owner. 

We are not sure who the Governor is protecting, but it is not the people of Florida.

Florida Oil Spill | Missing Oil Found

Florida Oil Spill .com put out a calll for the missing or disappearing oil. Today we found some of it buried on the beaches in the Florida panhandle. In a Study called "Ongoing Beach Cleanup of the BP Oil Spill – A Superficial Job, Literally" scientists seem to have found oil under the formerly pristine sand of some Florida Beaches. The study reviews how the oil came to be buried, out of sight and out of mind. You can view the complete story of how oil gets buried here for free. Its a real page turner, but we suspect you can guess how the oil was hidden beneath the surface.

According to scientists, the first picture, to your left "Figure 1 shows the different forms of oil contamination, including: 1) tar balls: discrete accumulations of oil <10 cm (4 inches) in diameter (Figure 1a); 2) tar patties: discrete accumulations of oil >10 cm (inches) in diameter (Figure 1b); 3) tar cakes: tar patties exceeding 3 cm in thickness (Figure 1c); 4) oil sheets: discrete, but spatially continuous accumulation of oil >5 m (15 feet) in length or width (Figure 1d); 5) oil stains: a visible thin veneer of oil coating sediment grains (Figure 1e), which cannot be mechanically separated from the sediment, as compared to the other four forms of oil contamination. All five forms of “beach oiling” are found along the nearly 300 km of beaches along the Alabama and northern Florida coast. Figure 1.

The scientists also discovered, "all forms of oil contamination as discussed above were also observed beneath the surface of the beach, buried at various depths within several tidal cycles, i.e., few days. Figure 5a shows continuous oil sheet buried within the foreshore subenvironment under calm wave conditions during the oil beachfall on June 24, 2010. The subsurface oil layer dipped seaward following the antecedent foreshore topography, buried up to 10 inches at the seaward end and pinching out at depth of 2 inches under the active berm crest within one tidal cycle."

Florida Oil Spill | How Much is Left in the Gulf?

Florida Oil Spill Lawyer
Oil Disappears?

Florida Oil Spill .com notes strange reports that most of the the oil, about seventy-four percent of the oil blasting into the Gulf for around three months, has disappeared. Standby for the truth. NBC reports healthy skepticism of claims of the disappearance of the oil.

We remain vigilant and hope that oil disappeared. These reports are a curious departure from the early estimates of thousands, if not millions of gallons of crude oil have been shot into the Gulf of Mexico in the weeks and months since the Deep Water Horizon blow out.

Please let us know if you find any "missing" oil.

Oil Spill Repair - High Risk Move for Florida Coastline

Florida Oil Spill Update - Repair efforts to cap uncontrolled gushing oil have risks that the flow of crude oil will worsen while 5,000 feet below the surface, they will cut off the blowout preventer and try to cap the well casing. near the Lower Marine Riser. At 10,000 psi, this may result in more oil risking the Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida coastlines.
