Vast amounts of methane in Gulf spill pose threat

June 25, 2010 by legitgov

Vast amounts of methane in Gulf spill pose threat 18 Jun 2010 Vast amounts of natural gas contained in crude escaping from the blown Gulf of Mexico oil well could pose a serious threat to marine life by creating "dead zones" where oxygen is so depleted that nothing lives... At least 4.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas -- and possibly almost twice that amount -- have leaked since April 20. That's based on estimates from the U.S. Geological Survey's "flow team" that 2,900 cubic feet of natural gas are escaping for every barrel of oil. "This is the most vigorous methane eruption in modern human history," said John Kessler, a Texas A&M University oceanographer.
