A letter to the Congressmen on BP Mega Oil Spill disaster.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Below is a letter which I have written to two US Congressmen/Chairmen regarding some geohazard/seafloor developments at the Macondo Prospect in the Gulf of Mexico, the location of last year's BP Oil Spill.

I have posted many articles on the internet on the geohazardous conditions at the Macondo site (see and Those of us working in the Oil and Gas Industry know how dangerous oil exploration can be and the disastrous consequences of any blowout, especially those that had reached their targeted reservoirs. The number of near disasters and oil spill disasters in recent years is not, and can never be, good for our industry. The safety of our working colleagues and the future of the oil industry are dependent on improving, not deteriorating safety standards and compromising preventive pre-drill planning, management and geohazards assessment.

We must also prove to the world our sincerity, our responsibility and our accountability towards preserving the global environment and leaving the world in a better place for our children. To those who know me or have worked with me in the past, I would deeply appreciate your support in emailing some words of verification that I (BK Lim) am a real person (not virtual) and a professional geohazards specialist working in the offshore Oil and Gas Industry.  If appropriate, you might want to address any similar issues or incidents that would validate a pattern of conduct which led to the Macondo Blowout, as well as many similar situations that have occurred throughout the history of offshore oil and gas drilling.

To those who have not met me in person, but have come across my past work and contribution to the industry, please spare some time to write to:  

        Dr. Tom Termotto, National Coordinator
        Gulf Oil Spill Remediation Conference
        Tallahassee, FL    
        "Oil Spill Solution"
We greatly need the world's support in the remediation of the BP Oil Spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.  Who would be better to lend support to this international community endeavor than those whose livelihoods depend on the Gulf's future, and those who understand the true state of affairs wherever oil and gas drilling are conducted in the oceans of the world.

Kind regards,
BK Lim

  1. It is sad to here these type of accidents taken place in Offshore sector.Working in Offshore sector is great thing, but at the same time we have to take care of ourselves.Sometimes oil spill accidents may occur.There are few worst Offshore Oil spills taken place in history.In this Deepwater Horizon oil Spill, USA is the biggest disaster and taken 11 people lives and killed thousands of marine species including birds,turtles and dolphins.
