State now tracking 10 oil and gas spills in Colorado flood zones | DenverPost.com

State now tracking 10 oil and gas spills in Colorado flood zones | DenverPost.com | Oil Spill | Scoop.it

Oil and gas releases from 10 different sites in flooded areas of Colorado are being tracked by state and federal regulations.

 

Two of the releases were "significant" and the remaining eight are being classified as minor, according to an update from the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission.

 

Minor spills are considered sheens coming off of a piece of equipment rather than a measurable volume of petroleum product.

 

Anadarko Petroleum Corp. reported two releases Wednesday: a release of 125 barrels — about 5,225 gallons — into the South Platte near Milliken and a release of 323 barrels — about 13,500 gallons — from a tank farm on the St. Vrain River near Firestone.

 

It appears the oil left the site in floodwaters, the commission said.

Both releases involve condensate, a mixture of oil and water, according to Matthew Allen, a spokesman for the Denver office of the federal Environmental Protection Agency.

 

"We are back in the field today looking for on-going releases," Allen said. "So far we haven't found any of those."

Russell Roberts's curator insight, September 16, 2013 1:21 AM

According to "The Huffington Post", there are no regulatory systems in place for dealing with a molasses spill of this magnitude. The environmental damage could last for years.  This could be the worst marine disaster in state history.  Aloha, Russ.

Alberta's unstoppable oil spill

Damages and difficulties...

 

New figures released yesterday from the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) show a concerted effort is still underway to clean up the growing amount of bitumen emulsion – a mixture of tar sands oil and water – that is pooling in a forested area surrounding Canada Natural Resource Ltd.’s Cold Lake project.

The cause of the seepage, which shows no sign of subsiding, has yet to be determined.

AER’s updated volumes show that the total amount of bitumen emulsion recovered on four separate spill sites amounts to 1444.4 cubic metres, a volume equivalent to 1.4 million litres of oil.
