An anonymous government official said BP is not complying with the government's demand for more monitoring of oil and methane leaks on the sea floor. BP spokesman Mark Salt declined to comment on the allegation, but said "we continue to work very closely with all government scientists on this."But yesterday the Feds finally moved in with their own ships and equipment to monitor the sea floor.
The Government almost immediately found oil leaking from the sea floor along with multiple methane leaks but did not immediately inform the public of their findings.
However, it didn't take long before an "anonymous government official" leaked the those findings to the media.
CBS Channel 12 West Palm Beach reported oil seepage and methane detected around the well.
"Turns out there is a problem, engineers detected seepage and traces of methane in that area around the well."
