Oil spill Gulf of Mexico: Work can be continued – Because of the threat of Tropical Storm „Bonnie“, the relief drillings in the Gulf of Mexico have been exposed in the past four days – but after its weakening, the rescue work can be resumed earlier than expected.
„Bonnie“ moved down to a cyclone and passed by the Gulf of Mexico yesterday, which gave the ships and workers who have already been on the way back the opportunity to an immediate U-turn to continue the fight against the oil spill.
Meanwhile, it has now been published that in relation to the „oil rig Deepwater Horizon“ exploded in April, the alarm system was particulary taken out of order.
While the alarm system had been turned on in order to discover possible fires and explosive and toxic gases on the day of the disaster, according to engineer Mike Williams sirens and visual alarm were put out of function, so that „employees on the oil rig won`t be wakened up at night by a false alarm.“
