Deepwater Horizon: Who's Lying to Congress? By Bruce Thompson 12/6/12 --- Summary While the technical issues raised by this accident are beyond the ken of the average citizen, I would like to remind everyone that on page 42 of the Chief Counsel's Report Chapter 4.1, the Chief Counsel himself states "Forensic Evidence Suggests That Hydrocarbons Did Not Flow up the Annulusand Through the Seal Assembly", which is exactly where the hydrocarbons would have flowed if the centralizers had been an issue. His findings are that the hydrocarbons flowed up through the shoe track and inside the production casing, not outside it in the ring-shaped space between the production casing and the well bore in the rock, the "annulus". This was confirmed when the relief well finally intersected the annulus in September 2010 and found no hydrocarbons present. That fact was known to the government through the National Incident Command which had legal authority over all drilling operations and which had FBI agents on hand to witness the proceedings as the relief well intersection was completed. So why hasn't the FBI sought charges against the co-chairmen of the President's Oil Spill Commission for lying to Congress? Does Obama's Department of Justice believe in unequal justice favoring big government over the citizenry? Read more: Articles: Deepwater Horizon: Who's Lying to Congress?
