The presence of turbulent winds and waves has delayed the search for crude oil that may possibly be submerged offshore in Lake Michigan after oil giant BP Plc’s northwestern Indiana refinery caused an oil spill due to a malfunction on Monday, March 24.
The United States Coast Guard said inclement weather on Friday, March 28 made it impractical for their agents, BP staffers, and the Environmental Protection assessment team to send out boats to get samples along the path of the Whiting refinery’s oil spill.
The work was set to resume Sunday, March 30.
