WX Conditions Limit Cleanup Operations Near BP Refinery

Share this post

Weather conditions and safety concerns prohibited a planned submerged oil survey today near the BP Whiting Refinery, the site of Monday's oil discharge. The US Coast Guard reports high winds and waves created unsafe conditions for personnel and made taking water samples by boat too dangerous.
An assessment of the shoreline today, northwest of the refinery, found no oil contamination. Officials with the Coast Guard report their Federal On-scene Coordinator will assist BP crews tomorrow with identification and removal of the mixture of oiled pebbles found on Thursday, with clean up operations and the postponed submerged oil survey to take place Sunday, weather permitting, on the rocky shoreline on the southeast end of the cove.
