Oil companies are spending millions and in the case of BP billions on oil
spills, when there is a tried and trued technology, they have successfully
tested and utilized in a small way that will save them enormous amounts of money
and time associated with spill response. OSE II is the worlds only first
response bioremediation clean up product that will actually address 100% of a
spill, prevent oil from sinking into the water column where 60% of marine
species live, (like toxic dispersants) prevent oil from sinking to the seabed
destroying bottom dwellers as well as sea plants. OSE II causes oil to float
preventing secondary impacts, and allowing natural bacteria to digest the oil to
CO 2 and water preventing oxygen depletion to the water column. OSE II could
have saved BP billions in clean up costs and natural resource damages, and
litigation. The oil companies are still using outdated oil spill response
techniques that are running up costs needlessly.
My feeling is that the company is not spending 75 million of their own money. It
will not come from the stock holders but from all of us at the gas pumps.

when they are making RECORD profit...that we are paying? $75 million
dollar mess up... and I'm the 'liberal bad guy?'
I'm glad the oil company had enough money to clean up the spill. Imagine if
this were the federal governments problem, who would be able to pay for it?
Re: Pagen | 9:00 a.m. Aug. 11, 2011 Oil isn't evil, waiting to
pounce on you when you're not looking. Oil is, however, indispensable. Without
it farmers would have no way of planting, harvesting and transporting their
products to the market.The liberals decry oil while they enjoy all

Chevron will absorb the expense which means Chevron customers will absorb the
expense. Since petroleum products are fungible - everyone will absorb the
I'm still curious as to what group allowed an oil pipeline to be built so close
to a major waterway. Seems like that's a big NO NO.
