Oil Spill

Pride comes before the extent of the oil spill is no longer comprehensible for most people. Hardly anyone can imagine how big the beaten oil quantities are real. The disaster in the daily pictures and reports about the consequences of the oil spill is concrete: people that are trying to curb the oil mass and countless animals dead in the oil. The Exchange Portal boersennews.de contains the catastrophe in numbers and puts them in a global context. According to current estimates, have so far every day about 60,000 barrels of oil. This corresponds to about 9.6 million gallons that flow daily into the sea.

Within a month, the amount of leaking oil thus achieved the unimaginable dimension of approximately 290 million liters of oil. But this huge oil loss has an impact on the price of oil on the world market? Because the price of oil is subject to fluctuations, which have many different causes, relationships are often difficult to identify. Statistically, that is so far in the Gulf of Mexico disappearing effect oil level low. It is equivalent to the consumption of an hour just worldwide. However, the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico for the BP Group had a significant impact: the stock market value has been halved since the disaster in April three months to around 80 billion euros.

Thus is the sinking of the deepwater horizon rig for megalomaniacal greed and arrogance. BP wanted to be from the fourth to the largest companies in the world. Greed and ruthlessness seem to have something of a tradition in the oil business. Whether as a hint of the fate is that the current disaster almost occurred before the birthplace of oil madness, remains pure speculation.
