Oil CEO Admits Quart-by-Quart Oil Spills Are Happening Continually, and On a Daily Basis into America’s Precious Water Supplies

(EnviroNews DC News Bureau) – In our extended coverage with this enigmatic and lifelong oilman and “downhole” expert, we explore the topic of quart by quart oil spills into the environment. The fossil fuel CEO, who in his own words said he wanted to “take the opportunity to clear his conscience of some things that have been weighing on his chest for a long time”, wanted to respond to a press release published late last year that showcased the fact that the world’s largest oil spill is not the Exxon/Valdez, BP, Taft, California, or even the Kuwaiti oil fields, but rather the spill that is happening on a quart by quart basis, slowly, and from a multitude of commercial and consumer sources worldwide.

The press release entitled “Silent Oil Spills”, was released by the Society of Professional Journalists (SEJ) on December 6, 2012 and pointed out some daunting statistics regarding the amount of namely, motor oil that is spilled into our oceans and water supplies each year. The press release, paid for by Biosynthetic Technologies (BT), pointed out that over 2.5 billion gallons of “lubricating oil” are sold annually, but only about 1.5 billion come back, meaning that over 1 billion gallons are “lost in use” and for the most part end up back in the environment in one way shape or form. The write-up also exposed the fact that 200 million gallons of motor oil are illegally dumped or improperly disposed of each year as a result of reckless home oil changes.

The PR write-up cited numbers compiled by the National Research Council and listed air pollution from cars and industry, “routine ship maintenance”, and improper oil changes as the main culprits. That may all be true, but our oil patch truth-teller had a little something to say about quart by quart oil spills that was not not discussed in the release.

In this compelling segment from our extended coverage with the oil CEO, he takes EnviroNews USA onto a well-site where oil and chemicals are lying around casually on the snow covered grounds. What he reveals to us about the prevalence of this type of environmentally destructive situation worldwide in the oil industry will shock you!

    Thanks to John Enviro for this link which discusses the quart by quart oil spill catastrophe that exceeds all the major catastrophes. The fact that oil users simply don’t take due care in terms of how they dispose of their spent and spilt oil adds up to one billion gallons of missing lubricant oil and 200M gallons of illegally disposed of motor oil due to home servicing. They do not mention domestic heating oil and the diesel oil laundering business.
