The BP MC 252 blowout well was reported to have been capped on July 15th, 2010. Members of EcoRigs found surface water crude oil in September 2010, April 2011, and August 2011 originating from the blowout well. This video was recently recorded 103 miles north (341 degrees) of DWH MC 252. For the first time in history, the dispersant (Corexit®) is being applied to a subsurface leak 1,500 m beneath the ocean's surface at the wellhead, in an effort to prevent the leaking oil from reaching the surface. Corexit particulates the crude oil, emulsifying it into small droplets, with a specific gravity greater than that of seawater making the crude oil sink. The objective of the subsurface application is to prevent the crude oil from reaching the surface. Music Courtesy of: www.mediafire.com zwieR.Z. - The Breakthrough.rar
