    This is a publicly traded company.

    Reserve data is highly important to an oil companies' net worth.

    Since the US subsidiary is traded on a public exchange, the reserve data is likely not quite as secret as all that, since management must discuss, per SEC regulations (HA!), things that materially affect the bottom line.

    It may be proprietary, but if the reserve were larger by a factor of 100, and larger than the Saudi field, that would have been disclosed by now for those reasons. It would instantly have made BP, as the discoverer/owner of the field vastly rich, by inflating its assets.

    Kind of hard for that to sneak under the radar in mysterious conspiracy land, unknown to the rest of the world, IMO. No offense.
    All they have to do us use terms like "greater than" without really disclosing what they might really know.

    I've worked with proprietary information before myself. Trust me. There are ways of wording it, and as long as it isn't fraudulent, they cannot get in trouble once the truth comes out.

    Everything settles on semantic differences with you. What I wanna know is, who died and made you the dictionary?

    Nobody.

    As time passes, we gain wisdom and knowledge.

    According to BBC overnight, the US is in talks with Petrobras to loan them money. For what I have no idea.

    Possibly related?
    supposedly to encourage exports to brazil, who will purchase a good deal of equipment from the US as a result of the loan.

    The problem was that Bazalgette wasn’t thinking big enough. His diversion project was created for a city of 2.5 million – and even that number was almost unthinkable at the time. In 2011 , however, London’s population has swelled to 8 million, and the infrastructure is simply no longer up to the task. About 50 times a year, the sewers overflow and send enough sewage into the Thames to fill up a sporting arena once a month.

    I read the Water Room by Christopher Fowler recently, it has a lot of fascinating stuff in it about the lock systems and all the underwater/lost rivers in and around London, and on top was a great murder mystery. I'm surprised the article didn't mention Dr. John Snow's efforts in tracing the cholera outbreak back to its source.

    10 years later: Scientists learn long-term impact of Deepwater Horizon spill

    Oil gushed from the leak for 87 days before it was finally capped.

    A total of five million barrels of oil spilled into the gulf.

    Polluting the water, killing marine life, and causing America’s largest environmental disaster.

    A disaster that still lingers in the gulf more than 10 years later.


    “Currently there’s a substantial amount of that oil still in the environment,” said Murawski.

    “The oil that’s stranded in the deep bottom of the gulf will not be landfilled by sediment deposition for another 100 years,”

    “Even now we see very low reproduction rates for those animals,”

    He said of all the fish they’ve studied in the gulf; they still have yet to find one without traces of oil on it.

    “We analyzed over 2000 fishes for their contamination with the most toxic components of oil called PAH's,

    and every single one that we analyzed had a certain level of PAH's,"


    “The Deepwater Horizon oil spill impacted a lot of marine life,”

    https://www.abcactionnews.com/news/f...-horizon-spill


    At the time, the multi-millionaire bag running BP was fed up with the disaster "I just want my life back"
