Subsea Operational Update from BP



For the last 12 hours on June 15th (noon to midnight), approximately 4,830 barrels of oil were collected and 14.6 million cubic feet of natural gas were flared.
On June 15th, a total of approximately 10,440 barrels of oil were collected and 25.1 million cubic feet of natural gas were flared.
Oil collection volumes were lower on June 15th due to the direct lightening strike on the Enterprise.
Total oil collected since the LMRP Cap containment system was implemented is approximately 160,400 barrels.
Collection commenced on the Q4000 at ~9:50pm with hydrocarbons reaching surface at ~1am on the 16th. We expect to optimize collection over the next few days.
The next update will be provided at 6:00pm CDT on June 16, 2010.
