The BP oil conspiracy.

This is pretty questionable......

All of these articles have different pieces of information. Basically, Goldman sells 44% of its holdings a few months before the spill. Then the day before the spill short the stock.... THEN Halliburton cements the well INCORRECTLY, and 8 days before buys stock in a company that specializes in putting out gas and oil fires. Then SLG is saying that BP's foreman or whatnot told them to leave 11 hours before the blast and ordered them NOT to do a check on the faulty part that would blow only a few hours later.

Someones got some splainin to do.

"Drill baby, drill!"

BP doesn't care about anyone but themselves. They've spent $50 million on advertising campaigns rather than help clean up the barrier islands when they were asked to. Their CEO is a douchebag and they have recently been refusing to clean up certain places. With all these lack of safety checks it really doesn't surprise me.

One of the thigns I read early on about the cementing, was that Halliburton was cementing the well based on the well being @ a depth of 18,000 feet. Which was also the limit set by their drilling permit. Halliburton made calculations based on the 18,000 foot depth, and did their cementing. Problem was that the well was drilled down to 25,000 feet, 7,000 feet beyond their permit. The additional pressure at that depth required more cement than was being put in. So when they "finished", the cement had too much pressure below it and gave way. If BP had been drilling as per their permit, the cementing operation might possibly have been successful. But, true to their colors, BP wasn't playing within the rules, again.

That company needs to be dissolved. they were responsible for protecting and cleaning up Prince William Sound, but they failed. Then this. That company should not be allowed to conduct business again.

BP Ceo sold his own stocks a month before that happens. Got the link in spanish so ... but google it in english, its true

edit: anyway, from a technichal analitic point of view, there is no great volume pump, not even a poor change tendency. Corporations and Ceos are selling and buying stocks packets everytime. 200$ M maybe sound a lot for us, in the market thats loose.
