The August 4 ‘Oil Budget’ released by the federal government states that only 26 percent of BP’s oil remains — and is on or just below the surface as light sheen/weathered balls, washed up on shore, or buried.

“Peer-reviewed and published studies that document that Corexit submerge approximately 70% of the crude (likely much higher percent when applied sub-sea, 5000′ down in the presence of bubbling gases),” according to Stuart Smith, Attorney, Smith Stag LLC.
