Default 1979 oil spill in the Gulf, very interesting

I was very young when this happened so I don't know the whole impact of the spill back then but how similar is it that it is the same thing that caused it ( The BOPV ) and the company " Transocean " was involved? I remember the tar balls , but very few, nothing like what we are getting now.

Ixtoc has been remembered and commented on since day one of the current spill. The volumewas nothing compared to this spill, and the water depth was only 150-200 feet. Only arelatively small amount ever reached the shores of the US, mostly along the south shore of Texas.Google Ixtoc for all you ever wanted to know, and probably more. By the way, Maddow's show was aired about three weeks ago.
