Waltham, MA, June 02, 2010 –(PR.com)– As the BP oil rig blowout continues to spew oil into the Gulf, demand has been high for oil spill, offshore leasing, offshore production operations and offshore drilling experts on Zintro. Roger Neal, a prominent oil, natural gas and LNG expert on the Zintro platform with 33 years of industry experience says “I have provided at least 16 different advisory consultations since late April for various institutional and industry clients on the BP blowout / oil spill in the Gulf in the past 6 weeks – covering topics from explaining the details of what went wrong and why, to discussing offshore deepwater drilling and production operations, to outlining the liability exposures for the companies involved, to explaining the regulatory changes occurring and their impact on the offshore drilling industry, to discussing the impact on offshore oil and gas production volumes, to identifying the financial impact on other Gulf of Mexico producers.” There is a strong need for people who understand the complexities of the events happening and who can explain the complex situations in clear and concise terms to others who are unfamiliar with the offshore industry.
Another Zintro expert Jeff Harrison worked for Ambar (who owned Oil Mop) as a Vice President of Technical Services and has worked in oil and gas for 30 years. He brings hands-on experience “I have supervised rigs for BP. I have written up many procedures for going from drilling mode to completions mode.”
Nigel, a 23 year oil & gas expert, shares an interesting observation about the lasting impact of the spill “The environment responds in different ways to an oil spill. History records a number of significant spillages of the European coast – Torrey Canyon in 1967 (120 000 tonnes), Amoco Cadiz in 1978 (250 000 tonnes or nearly 2 million barrels!) and Braer in 1993 (85 000 tonnes). In the short term, Amoco Cadiz proved the nastiest, with oil staining the beaches of northern France for a considerable period after. By contrast, the Braer disaster caused more long term pollution to the adjacent land than to marine wildlife, with the frequently heavy North Atlantic seas breaking up the entrained crude oil very rapidly. While many of the estimates of the rate of leakage from BPs’ Mexican Gulf platform are outrageously high, the relatively slow tidal movement in the Gulf and the absence of much turbulence in the are of the spill suggests that the crude will remain in the waters of the Gulf for some considerable time.”
