Description:
BLIND BAY, LOUISIANA, UNITED STATES (MAY 25, 2010) (REUTERS) VARIOUS OIL COVERED HARD BOOM IN FRONT WITH LAYER OF ABSORBANT BOOM IN BACK NEXT TO MARSH WORKER PUSHING DRUM (SOUNDBITE) (English) LIEUTENANT COMMANDER JASON TIEMAN, ASSISTANT CHIEF-RESERVE, PLANNING AND READINESS, UNITED STATES COAST GUARD, SAYING: "Once the boom is placed, the oil will collect in pools at kind of a U shape, and once it kind of collects, whether the current flows or the tide flows out, when it gathers out that is the perfect oppourtunity for us to deploy these drum skimmers. So basically the drum skimming will sit in pool of oil and then there is air that will make that plastic drum roll as it rolls it lifts the oil off the water and the dump it into a small trough and then they can suck that oil directly into a tank. And that is a very effective way to get oil off the water."
