Standard operating procedure

How much oil is dumped into Louisiana's Gulf waters every year?  Probably much more than we ever learn about.

Another oil company is poised to plead guilty to falsifying the amount of oil it spilled into the Gulf of Mexico.

It’s nothing on the order of the 2010 BP spill, in which BP admitted to lying about how much oil was spilling, but the charges against W&T Offshore show there are others trying to pull one over on the pollution police.

Federal prosecutors in New Orleans charged W&T Offshore with tampering with water samples and polluting the gulf in 2009.
