Subsea operational update: clear.gif • For the last 12 hours on June 8th (noon to midnight), approximately 7,160 barrels of oil were collected and 13.9 million cubic feet of natural gas were flared. clear.gif • On June 8th, a total of approximately 15,000 barrels of oil were collected and 29.4 million cubic feet of natural gas were flared. clear.gif • Total oil collected in the last four days since the containment system was implemented is approximately 57,500 barrels. clear.gif • The Massachusetts began lightering this morning and should finish early morning tomorrow (lightering is a process of transferring crude oil between vessels, in this case, Enterprise to Massachusetts). clear.gif • Operations were stable with the exception of a short period, around 2pm, when the Enterprise rotated to set up for lightering necessitating a reduction in choke setting and collected volumes. clear.gif • The next update will be provided at 5:30pm CDT on June 9, 2010.
