Study Confirms Some BP Oil Stayed Deep


Federal oceanographers have released their second report assessing how much of the oil that gushed from the Gulf of Mexico seabed since the blowout of the BP well may have  dispersed in ocean depths rather than rising to the surface. The new analysis confirms the  previous conclusion that some oil did in fact drift and disperse in waters between 3,300 and 4,300 feet beneath the surface.
