In early May, BP changed strategies and put Hayward in front of the cameras. The company hired Marine Spill Response to deploy four 210-foot oil-skimming ships and two planes to spray dispersants on the oil. As the crisis mounted, Hayward tried everything at once.

about MSRC
Marine Spill Response Corporation

In direct response to the Oil Pollution Act (OPA-90), the Marine Spill Response Corporation was formed in 1990.

Since its inception, MSRC has become the largest, dedicated, standby oil spill response program in the United States including open water, shoreline and mid-continent river operations. MSRC provides immediate assistance through experienced crews and fleets of equipment on call, ready and waiting to respond to any oil-based emergency, no matter how big, or how small.

Every second counts – and the last thing anyone needs is to wait for appropriate government guarantees in order to begin the clean-up process. Yet plans that do not cite MSRC require government guarantees before MSRC can respond. Meanwhile, the spill is worsening.

MPA Members know that they have instant access to MSRC which has the largest cadre of professional, knowledgeable manpower, as well as the largest fleet of specialized vessels, array of equipment and other capabilities necessary to quickly respond to – and mitigate – the threat of a spill to the environment. Because of that, membership in MPA satisfies many of the obligations for an oil spill response plan, as mandated by OPA 90.

If you use MSRC’s services as an MPA member, you are entitled to a MPA dues credit on all normal MSRC personnel and equipment charges that you pay. This dues credit makes membership in MPA even more advantageous. Complete details on this dues credit are included in the MPA membership packet, which you can request by clicking HERE.

To become a customer of the Marine Spill Response Corporation (MSRC) entitled to cite MSRC in response plans, a company must first become a member of the Marine Preservation Association (MPA). MPA is an Arizona based non-profit membership corporation organized exclusively to promote the welfare and interests of the petroleum transportation, petroleum, and energy industries by addressing the problems caused by spills of oil and petroleum products on water. These member companies have recognized the importance of a high quality, dedicated spill response capability necessary to protect the environment and, through MPA, provide steady state funding to MSRC to achieve this objective. A company may execute a Service Agreement with MSRC after establishing membership with MPA to allow the company to cite MSRC resources in vessel and facility response plans.

MPA was established independent of MSRC to oversee broad policy issues affecting its members’ industries generally, including funding objectives for spill response capabilities and the mechanisms by which the MPA membership will share in the cost of such funding. MSRC provides independent spill response resources and capability based on the funding received from MPA. While the two organizations operate independently, well established communication is on-going between the two entities. Members of MPA deal directly with MPA with respect to overall membership and funding issues and, as customers of MSRC, deal directly with MSRC regarding all operational and technical aspects associated with spill response.

Further information on membership in MPA can be obtained by contacting:

(after Deepwater Horizon explosion killing 11 and the resulting oil leaks (3) causing 210,000 gallons (conservatively) each day to be spilled into the Gulf of Mexico – so far, for 24 days unabated. The smallest leak was capped – the other two continue to this time.

The oil slick and thick oil streaks plus dispersant mixed with oil globs are floating across an area greater than the size of Delaware and covering over 2000 square mile plus a bunch (not a current figure from today – as of, several days ago.)

“Because of that, membership in MPA satisfies many of the obligations for an oil spill response plan, as mandated by OPA 90.”

(my note – and that is how they weren’t ready to deal with this spill nor this level of required response)

***

My Note –

It is my analysis that there is more like 11,500,000 gallons (or beyond that amount) of crude oil that has poured into the Gulf of Mexico from this Deepwater Horizon drilling explosion and three spewing leaks at a rate of slightly more than 500,000 gallons per day.

And, the reason they are saying what they are saying is because they want to say it – and with an oil spill covering over 2,000 square miles of surface area, plus the 325,000 gallons plus of dispersant that has been added which took some percentage of the volume and dispersed it throughout the subsurface waters – and the 3.5 million gallons of oil and water mix that has been sucked off the surface – that is more coverage volume than 210,000 gallons a day of crude oil pouring into the Gulf of Mexico waters would do.

And, every photo of the Gulf of Mexico where the oil spill or the oil sheen or the oil slick or the crude oil streaks are showing – also show layers of that same oil down below the surface – in every single picture. They are lying. They’ve been lying from the start and they are lying now.

The video on this page shows that the labs are starting to find oil globs throughout the volume of Gulf Waters and on the Rick’s List CNN show earlier, they had a half bottle of the waters – straight from the Gulf of Mexico and it was not delightful and very apparently so. It isn’t possible to make a face like that so automagically and naturally unless it is a definitely ugly smell. And, they all had that expression – they described it as sort of a dead fish and crude oil petroleum mix. Yum – let’s send all the oil executives for a swim in it.
