Document shows BP estimates spill up to 100,000 bpd

WASHINGTON, June 20 (BestGrowthStock) – An internal BP Plc (BP.L: )
(BP.N: ) document released on Sunday by a senior U.S.
congressional Democrat shows that the company estimates that a
worst-case scenario rate for the Gulf of Mexico oil spill could
be about 100,000 barrels of oil per day.

The estimate of 100,000 barrels (4.2 million gallons/15.9
million liters) of oil per day is far higher than the current
U.S. government estimate of up to 60,000 barrels (2.5 million
gallons/9.5 million liters) per day gushing from the ruptured
offshore well into the sea.

The document was released by U.S. Representative Ed
Markey.
