Gulf Coast Oil Spill Statistics. Location: The Gulf of Mexico, about 42 miles southeast of Venice, Louisiana. Cause: Scientists think that a methane bubble was released from a well that was being converted from an exploration well to a production well.The bubble of gas broke through several safety barriers before triggering an explosion and oil leak.
An oil spill! Let's say 100 m^3 of oil is spilled and the oil slick forms a right circular cylinder on the surface of the water. Let's also say the thickness (h) of the slick is decreasing at a rate of 0.001 m/sec. How fast is the radius (r) increasing when the slick is 0.01 m thick? Related Rates - An Oil Slick: HELP: The radius of a circular oil slick expands at a rate of 2 m/min. Move the point on the slider or press the play/pause button in the lower left hand corner to see an animation. Explore. How fast is the area of the oil slick increasing when the radius is `25` m? 2016 Update of Occurrence Rates for Offshore Oil Spills 2016 Update of Occurrence Rates for Offshore Oil Spills Abstract This report updates the 2012 oil spill occurrence rate estimates applicable to offshore oil exploration and development activity in the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) (Anderson, Mayes, and LaBelle, 2012). While in the 1970s there were 24.5 large (> 700 tonnes) oil spills per year, in the 2010s the average number of large oil spills decreased to 1.7 oil spills per year. Both, large oil spills and medium sized oil spills (7-700 tonnes) are decreasing. This happened as the worldwide trade of petroleum and gas products increased. The Exxon Valdez oil spill killed 2,800 sea otters, 300 harbor seals, and up to 22 killer whales. In the years after the Exxon Valdez spill, scientists noted higher death rates among sea otters and other species affected by the spill and stunted growth or other damage among additional species. This is a reverse-chronological list of oil spills that have occurred throughout the world and spill(s) that are currently ongoing. Quantities are measured in tonnes of crude oil with one tonne roughly equal to 308 US gallons, 256 Imperial gallons, 7.33 barrels, or 1165 litres.This calculation uses a median value of 0.858 for the specific gravity of light crude oil; actual values can range
