The Coast Guard notifies BP and Transocean (RIG) that a new sheen of oil near the Macondo site matches the oil from the 2010 spill; the sheen could be linked with oilfield debris left on the ocean floor at the time. The sheen doesn’t pose a threat to the shoreline, but the Coast Guard tells BP and RIG they may be held financially liable for the new oil. (earlier: potential settlement)

    From Reuters:

     

    "'Pressed for comment on the campaign trail, Governor Mitt Romney said 'If any of that oil can be traced to BP, I'll put a boot on their neck and shut down drilling in the gulf.'"

     

    "A BP spokesperson responded 'We are now not only Beyond Petroleum--we're Beyond Windmills and Solar as well. Our new campaign is 'Somewhere Beyond the Rainbow' and we are in negotiation to buy up the MGM library and enter the entertainment business.'"

     

    BP down in early trading.

    Romney is a shoot first guy. OK in the movies, dangerous in real life.
