In the United States eliminate the consequences of a large-scale oil spill

The state of Kansas continues to eliminate the results of the largest spill of crude oil from the Keystone pipeline in almost 10 years, American broadcaster NDT reports. A local creek in the northeast of the state has received 14 barrels, roughly the size of an Olympic swimming pool. But this is reportedly only official. In reality, it could be much more.


However, it is reported that the oil spill did not disrupt the water supply in nearby communities and people did not have to evacuate. Barriers were quickly erected in the stream, which did not allow water with a layer of oil to go downstream.

The reasons for the oil leak are still unknown. According to Bill Cram, Executive Director of the Pipeline Safety Trust, the accident may be related to the peculiarities of the construction of the Keystone pipeline, through which the Canadian company TC Energy pumps more than 600 barrels of black gold every day to US refineries and export centers.

It is noteworthy that the leak on the pipeline is the third incident since its commissioning in 2010. Last time, about 800 barrels of oil leaked out because of the accident. According to other sources - about a million.

According to a number of experts, what happened could affect the oil reserves of Oklahoma, as well as reduce the supply of fuel resources to the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and to the central regions of the country.

Against the backdrop of the accident in the United States, the price of Brent oil on the world market returned to $80 per barrel, jumping from $75.

      Okay, Gretta, but where are the American "independent" environmentalists, where is GREENPEACE?!
      Or do they "bark" only at Russia and on command?!

    Pipeline Safety Trust Executive Director Bill Crum believes the accident may be related to the Keystone pipeline layout.

    It is very surprising that for the first time for all the dirty tricks that are happening in the West, they did not blame Russia.

    14 barili e una piscina olimpionica? L'Aritmetica, non la matematica, mi dice che 14 barili corrispondono a poco più di 2 metri cubi. La voglio vedere una 100m stile libero tra 10 nuotanti in 2 metri cubi :-)

      in the text "14 thousand barrels". those. 14000. Not algebra and arithmetic, but simple reading!

      Now you need to multiply your result by 1000 and you and your 10 swimmers will have somewhere to swim. You "problem conditions" misread. yes

    Here we can talk about not only a technical malfunction of the oil pipeline. US oilmen like expensive oil, but here it went down due to falling demand. How successfully the pipeline exploded in time. it has grown uphill. For everyone: Urals oil is pegged to the Brent brand, with a coefficient of 0,89. Urals is traded only on the Moscow Exchange. So the stuffing of the West can be ignored. in the OPEC deal. You only need to watch our Ministry of Finance and the Customs Union of the Russian Federation.

      It’s debatable, in fact, I think the US still needs expensive oil, since it’s impossible to shove green energy with cheap fuel, otherwise it’s impossible to explain the refusal to lay the Keystone XL oil pipeline and subsidies to shale producers. It is worth remembering that the United States is the largest oil and gas producer in the world, and at the same time a consumer, and now they are faced with the task of switching to electric vehicles and other green energy, and to increase world oil production for them to spit, then either put pressure on the Arabs, or their shale fill up.

      It is clear that the Urals brand is not traded on the New York Stock Exchange, not for that they popped.
