Brazil says Chevron oil leak larger than estimated

Houston Chronicle -- RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — An investigation by regulators found that Chevron Corp. could have prevented an offshore oil leak last year and that the spill was larger than previously estimated, the head of Brazil's National Petroleum Agency said Thursday.
Magda Chambriard, who runs the agency known as ANP, said at a news conference that about 155,000 gallons seeped into the ocean from cracks in the seabed floor near a Chevron well in the Frade field. Previous estimates put the leak at about 110,000 gallons, which a Chevron statement said is the figure it sticks by.

The cake server is absolutely right, I too would certainly trust oil companies numbers above those of government! When $$$ are on the line you can count on government to inflate the numbers!

"The earth leaks oil into the oceans everyday. Since this came from cracks in the ocean floor how is it Chevrons fault?"
=============================
Because Chevron is an American company. That's all that counts.

Brazil is just trying to fleece deep pockets. BP, however, should have been fined and sued out of existence for their behavior in the Gulf!

As long as we are so dependent on oil, spills like this are going to happen. Alternate sources of energy are our only way to avoid this.
