Here's the story about  the  Government that has  warned the  company about the oil pipeline and  monitoring.

By TIM MARTIN, Associated Press Writer Tim Martin, Associated Press Writer 1 min ago
BATTLE CREEK, Mich. A Canadian company whose pipeline leaked hundreds of thousands of gallons of oil into a Michigan river was warned by government regulators in January that its monitoring of corrosion in the pipeline was insufficient.

The U.S. Department of Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration told Enbridge Energy Partners Chairman Terry McGill in a Jan. 21 letter that its corrosion monitoring in Line 6B, the line that ruptured, did not comply with federal regulations.

According to the warning, Enbridge was implementing an alternate way of monitoring corrosion in the pipeline, and had detailed to regulators the steps it was taking to track corrosion in the meantime.

But the agency warned the company in the letter that it was violating code by not using certain chemicals used to protect pipe interiors, not using proper monitoring equipment to determine it those chemicals were working, and not examining its monitoring equipment at least twice a year.

"The transition from one technology to another must be implemented in a manner that ensures continued compliance with the regulations," the agency wrote.

I don't know why they don't just shut them down until they comply with regulations.

So you don't think Trans Ocean aka Halliburton have any responsibility in the gulf and now you jump on the blame game again here not knowing it's another American company that could very well be responsible for this spill as well. Sheesh  :rolleyes:



Good post Eldorado  I have a friend that works for Enbridge I bet she saw the blame coming down the pipe the min it happened.

Sittin back drinkin beer watchin the world take it's course.
