BP lie #75

This past week BP officials released numbers that they were now pumping 5,000 bbs/day from the Deepwater Horizon well. Well BP’s CFO Doug Suttles had to backtrack on that number yesterday:

Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said Friday that a mile-long tube inserted into the leaking pipe is sucking about 92,400 gallons of oil a day to the surface, a figure much lower than the 210,000 gallons a day the company said the tube was sucking up Thursday.
