10 The Flow Rate Technical Group, a specially convened group of scientists that included Rich Camilli, issues final report on the rate of oil flowing into the Gulf.
I personally led the flow rate technical group, which did the calculations on the rate of flow release and came up with the government assessment that flow rate at the end of the incident was 53,000 barrels of oil per day.
The new estimates, made by the Flow Rate Technical Group and announced by Marcia McNutt, the director of the US Geological Survey, come as the US government increases pressure on BP to take responsibility for "all the damages" from the massive oil spill.
The latest Flow Rate Technical Group estimate put the damaged well's average daily flow rate at 25,000-30,000 barrels, considerably higher than the prior "best estimate" of 12,000-19,000bpd issued by group on May 27.
The assessment was conducted by the Flow Rate Technical Group, which was created federal government to accurately gauge the oil being released into the Gulf after questions were raised about BP's own estimates.
