Its a link to a website that lists corporate activity and reports.

ISCO INC is one such corporation. It could be ISCO that says it’s a none for profit organisation on the link provided by DD.

But it seems you have to register to find more of what it’s about. It could be a name change of the company you were talking about: from over 30 years ago.

I'm not suggesting a conspiracy here but BP has just sold Gulf assets to Stone Energy (who???). It turns out that Stone Energy is a little company that has picked up a whole lot of well developed business for $204m. It is largely owned by Duquesne Capital Management (overwhelming the largest investor but still only $39m of investment). And who owns Duquesne Capital Management? Stanley Freeman Druckenmiller - 149th richest man in the US - and the guy who helped George Soros "break the Bank of England"... I'm just saying - but causal links - if you trace through this thread indicates that there may have been a deliberate strategy.

News of the deal

LONDON—BP PLC continued to trim its global portfolio Friday, announcing the sale of its stake in a dwindling deep-water oil field in the Gulf of Mexico to Stone Energy Corp. for $204 million.

BP originally set out to shed assets as a way of amassing $30 billion to fund costs stemming from last year's catastrophic Gulf of Mexico oil spill, but the U.K. energy company has since folded the effort into a new growth strategy.

"We continue to make progress in our divestment program as we focus on BP's areas of strength around the world," said Chief Executive Bob Dudley.

A unit of Stone Energy will receive BP's 75% operating interest in the Pompano field, as well as assets and a 50% nonoperating interest in the Mica field. In addition, Stone has bought from BP a 51% operating stake in a block in the Mississippi Canyon and a variety of other leases in the vicinity of the Pompano field.

Yes, this seems to make sense.

I found the Guardian link mentioned by Greg...

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/dec/15/wikileaks-bp-azerbaijan-gu lf-spill

(and of course noticed within this 911forum thread) in December 2010....

So the "Oil Well from Hell" is both c***-up and conspiracy.

c***-up - faulty process, inadequate safety measures
Conspiracy - Goldman Sacks/BP knowledge of the previous safety failures allowed killings to be made from share prices
c***-up - safety not taken seriously within BP
Conspiracy - media management of its previous poor record BP and keeping its safety record secret

Or maybe you ought to check out 'What on Earth Are They Spraying' and 'The Angels Still Don't Play This HAARP'?

In the HAARP video, moving the jetstreams are covered.

Bit of a coincidence, what, with the idea that jetstreams (in the plural) can be moved (disxcussed in 'HAARP' video), and then such a strange weather pattern we are experiencing, blamed on (supposedly) a strange shift in the jetstream?

Course, I might just be a tin-hatted 'Conspiracy Theorist'.

Whilst the Russians also have this technology, it is far inferior to the US version; perhaps the reason for the catostophic floods causing some 170 deaths in Russian floods reported today?

Oh yes; check out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1xiad4Ppe0
and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6Urpw3AQDU :
and my comments (Paul Barbara).

1952 Lynmouth flood (34 dead), with reports of unusual flights of RAF planes, then the dissapearance of all records of 'Operation Cumulus' (I mistakenly put 'Tumulus' in the 'comment', now corrected in a further comment).

'The air is safe to breathe' said the EPA, lying in their murderous teeth.
And now, re all manner of Gulf fish deformities, 'U.S. government agencies insist that seafood from the Gulf is safe...'
Raw Story (http://s.tt/1d7LC)

Gulf fishermen report eyeless shrimp, malformed fish hearts after oil spill:
http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/04/18/gulf-fishermen-report-eyeless-sh rimp-malformed-fish-hearts-after-oil-spill/

The ‘Horribly Mutated’ Seafood in The Gulf of Mexico:
http://worldtruth.tv/the-horribly-mutated-seafood-in-the-gulf-of-mexic o/

The fish are being exposed to PAHs, and I was able to find several references that list the same symptoms in fish after the Exxon Valdez spill, as well as other lab experiments,” explained Cowan. “There was also a paper published by some LSU scientists that PAH exposure has effects on the genome.”'

What does BP say?
“Seafood from the Gulf of Mexico is among the most tested in the world,” the energy company says in a statement. And “according to the FDA and NOAA, it is as safe now as it was before the accident.”

Al Jazeera contacted the office of Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, who provided a statement that said the state continues to test its waters for oil and dispersants, and that it is testing for PAHs.
“Gulf seafood has consistently tested lower than the safety thresholds established by the FDA for the levels of oil and dispersant contamination that would pose a risk to human health,” the statement reads. “Louisiana seafood continues to go through extensive testing to ensure that seafood is safe for human consumption. More than 3,000 composite samples of seafood, sediment and water have been tested in Louisiana since the start of the spill.”

BP refused Al Jazeera’s request to comment on this issue for a television interview, but provided a statement that read:
“Seafood from the Gulf of Mexico is among the most tested in the world, and, according to the FDA and NOAA, it is as safe now as it was before the accident.”

The FDA, EPA and NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) all refused to comment on the awfulness that’s happening in the Gulf. BP, the company who created this mess in the first place, refuse to take the blame, saying the seafood in the Gulf is “as safe now as it was before the accident.” The evidence, of course, indicates otherwise.



The Gulf of Mexico provides nearly half of the seafood caught in the US (40%). With its inhabitants dying or suffering mutations before they’re caught, it looks like seafood shortages are inevitable. According to various fishermen, brown shrimp catch has dropped by two-thirds, white shrimp have been wiped out and some fishermen’s seafood catch are ten percent of what they normally are. Seafood, as America knows it, has changed. And without the proper funding or commitment or BP accepting the blame, these effects might last longer than anyone thinks.

FDA, NOAA Officials Confident on Safety of Gulf Seafood:
http://www.louisianaseafoodnews.com/2011/03/05/fda-noaa-officials-conf ident-on-safety-of-gulf-seafood/

Fox News:
http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2012/04/18/eyeless-shrimp-and-mutant-fi sh-raise-concerns-over-bp-spill-effects/

'outsider', he say:
'But the FDA say the seafood is safe to eat, and the FDA is an 'honourable' Government Department', so eat up, folks! Enjoy!'
And I'm sure Gulf seafood will be top of the menu at Republican and Democratic Conventions (or rather, I hope it is!).

Greg Palast again... this time keeping the story alive by making the Bradley Manning connection...

Quote:

How Bradley Manning Could Have Prevented the Deepwater Horizon Explosion
By Greg Palast

Bradley Manning tried to save the eleven men who died – burned alive – on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in 2010. But Barack Obama and the New York Times made sure that wouldn’t happen.

Three years ago this month, on the 20th of April, 2010, the BP Deepwater Horizon drilling rig blew itself to kingdom come.
...
17 months before BP’s Deepwater Horizon blew out and exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, another BP rig suffered an identical blow-out in the Caspian Sea.

Crucially, both the Gulf and Caspian Sea blow-outs had the same identical cause: the failure of the cement “plug”.

To prevent blow-outs, drilled wells must be capped with cement. BP insisted on lacing its cement with nitrogen gas ... because it speeds up drying.
...
However, because BP’s penny-pinching method is so damn dangerous, they are nearly alone in using it in deep, high-pressure offshore wells.
...
So what about Bradley Manning?

Manning has been charged with “aiding the enemy” – a crime punishable by death.

But Manning’s sole and only purpose was to get out the truth. It wasn’t Manning who wrote the cover-up memos, he merely wanted to get them to the victims: us.

And since when did the public become “the enemy”?

Had Manning’s memos come out just a few months earlier, the truth about BP’s deadly drilling methods would have been revealed, and there’s little doubt BP would have had to change its ways. Those eleven men could well have been alive today.

...Manning, under oath, told a court, he tried to give it all to the New York Times to have knowledgeable reporters review the cables confidentially for life-saving information.

The New York Times immediately seized on this extraordinary opportunity… to ignore Manning. The Times only ran it when the Guardian was going to scoop – and embarrass – the New York hacks.

...

Look, I’m only picking on the New York Times and PBS Newshour because they are the best in America, God help us.

What other lives have been saved by the Manning revelations? Lots. Watch this space.

In the "You-Can't-Make-This-Up" category...

Halliburton found guilty of destroying evidence relating to Gulf of Mexico Oil Well Spill and now face a fine of.... £200,000 Rolling Eyes

http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2013/jul/26/halliburton-destroying- gulf-oil-evidence

Gulf oil spill: Halliburton to plead guilty to destroying evidence

Contractor to plead guilty over deleted computer simulations testing methods used to cement Deepwater Horizon well

Halliburton has admitted ordering employees to delete computer simulations about cementing of the Deepwater Horizon oil well.

Halliburton has agreed to plead guilty to destroying evidence related to the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the US department of justice said on Thursday.

The government said Halliburton's guilty plea was the third by a company over the spill and would require the world's second-largest oilfield services company to pay a maximum US$200,000 statutory fine.

Halliburton also agreed to three years' probation and to continue co-operating with the criminal probe into the 20 April 2010 explosion of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig.

Court approval of the deal is required. Houston-based Halliburton also made a separate, voluntary $55m payment to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, the justice department said.

Edward Sherman, a Tulane University law professor, said the plea could suggest weakness in Halliburton's position in negotiating a settlement over spill-related liabilities. "Their willingness to plead to this may also indicate that they'd like to settle up with the federal government on the civil penalties," he said. "It may indicate a softening of their position."

Halliburton said in a statement that it pleaded guilty to the misdemeanour charge and confirmed the plea agreement's terms.

The disaster caused 11 deaths and triggered the largest US offshore oil spill following the rupture of the Macondo oil well, which was 65% owned by BP. Halliburton had earlier provided cementing services to help seal the well.

According to the government Halliburton recommended to BP that the Macondo well contain 21 centralisers – metal collars that can improve cementing – but BP chose to use six. The government said that during an internal probe into the cementing after the blowout Halliburton ordered workers to destroy computer simulations that showed little difference between using six and 21 centralisers.

Efforts to locate the simulations forensically were unsuccessful, the government said.

BP and Transocean Ltd, which owned the drilling rig, have previously entered guilty pleas over other aspects of the Gulf oil spill and agreed to pay respective criminal fines of $1.26bn and $400mn. Both declined to comment on the Halliburton plea.

Halliburton, BP and Transocean are also defendants in a federal civil trial that began in February to apportion blame and set damages for the oil spill

Quote:
The hard-hitting new documentary Vanishing Pearls: The Oystermen of Pointe á la Hache, which premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival this week, is full of pearls of wisdom. In the documentary, director Nailah Jefferson holds these truths to be self evident: That 2010’s Deepwater Horizon explosion, massive oil spill and BP’s supposed cleanup and settlement efforts (or lack thereof), have laid waste to the traditional way of life of an African American community in the Gulf of Mexico.


http://www.earthisland.org/journal/index.php/elist/eListRead/thanks_to _the_deepwater_horizon_spill_the_world_is_no_longer_black_fisherme

Quote:
In what is arguably the best nonfiction film about oil drilling in the Bayou State since revered documentarian Robert Flaherty’s 1948 classic Louisiana Story,Jefferson reveals that the culture of Pointe á la Hache’s shrimpers, crabbers and oystermen – most of whom are African America – is under siege. Vanishing Pearls focuses on third generation oyster fisherman Byron Encalade, who explains that their seafaring lifestyle offered Blacks in this Deep South state “independence” and an alternative to “sharecropping.” Over the years, plumbing the depths of the Fertile Fisheries Crescent – the highly productive region stretching from Mobile Bay to Sabine Pass on the Texas/Louisiana border and including the Mississippi Sound and surrounding waters –enabled these proud descendents of slaves to rise above Jim Crow peonage and become self-sustaining workers and owners not reliant on “Mr. Charlie” and/or government subsistence programs for their survival.

The 90-minute film shows how all this changed when Hurricane Katrina was followed by the April 20, 2010 Deepwater Horizon explosion. For about three months after the Macondo blowout began, 200 million-plus gallons of oil spewed into the Gulf of Mexico, wreaking havoc not only on the environment but, as Jefferson sensitively reveals, on the human beings whose livelihoods, as well as a unique culture, depended upon this rich ecosystem. Jefferson’s narrative is helped along via sublime underwater and aerial cinematography.

Vanishing Pearls alleges that the drilling rig explosion was followed by more manmade calamities: BP’s botched cleanup efforts, prevarications and efforts to weasel out of paying just and full compensation to those impacted by the disaster. Jefferson depicts the slow deaths being suffered by the African American fishing community and others most directly impacted by the explosion and gargantuan spillage. The film follows Encalade, president of both the Louisiana Oysterman Association and the South Plaquemines United Fisheries Cooperative, as he struggles to persevere in the face of adversity.

Although BP ballyhoos both its cleanup and payout program with slick promotional TV ads and the like, Vanishing Pearls alleges that the company didn’t deliver on its promises. It shows how the fishermen are nickeled and dimed with small settlements that, if accepted, relieve BP of any future liability and compares their plight with attorney Kenneth Feinberg, whose Washington law firm, Feinberg Rozen LLP, BP hired for more than $1 a month to deal with the Gulf Coast Claims Facility. Many of the desperate, out of work oystermen, who – when they returned to their ships more than a year after the eco-tragedy couldn’t find enough oysters in the Gulf waters to enable them to continue making a living – relent and accept their meager payments out of sheer desperation. While the tragic spill was accidental, the film suggests that BP’s subsequent hardball payout tactics targeted a historically oppressed minority group without political clout in elite circles and the means to hire high powered attorneys like Feinberg and can therefore be regarded as a case of environmental racism.

...

Vanishing Pearls also strives to expose BP’s claim that it has cleaned the Gulf up. The film contends that BP used the dispersal Corexit which, which among other things, sank the very visible oil from the water’s surface, rendering the oil “out of sight, out of mind.” But when Hurricane Isaac struck the area two-plus years after the drilling rig explosion, tar balls washed ashore. And in 2013, a four-mile stretch of oil was seen along the coast, which is shown onscreen via an aerial shot.

...

Jefferson’s nonfiction film remains all too timely: On Jan 21, former Halliburton manager Anthony Badalamenti was sentenced to a year of probation, to perform 100 hours of community service and pay a $1,000 fine for destroying evidence following the Deepwater Horizon eco-debacle.

Exclusive Investigation Uncovers How BP Uses Bribes To Do Business:
http://therealnews.com/t2/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=31 &Itemid=74&jumival=11761

This shows part of the trailer for '"BP: In Deep Water", which unfortunately is unavailable to watch online in UK.

'..So, Greg, earlier, BPs Caspian Sea Transocean rig had suffered exactly the same fate as the Deepwater Horizon. So explain to us what were you looking for when you headed to Azerbaijan and what did you discover.

PALAST: Well, I was looking for the evidence, because no one knew, when the Deepwater Horizon went down, that there was an identical blowout halfway around the world on a BP Transocean platform in the Caspian Sea.

And, by the way, both rigs, both rigs blew out for the same exact reason. BP uses something called quick-dry cement, because--you know the old phrase--watching cement dry is the slowest process out. But you can make cement dry quicker by actually shooting it with nitrogen gas, like, literally laughing gas. It turns the cement into, like, a milkshake consistency and it speeds up the drying. Well, that's fine, except in high-pressure areas, when you use milkshake cement, quick-dry cement, which is just to save money, you're going to blow out. That's what happened in the Caspian Sea. And they covered it up. BP had never ever admitted that there was a blowout in the Caspian Sea.

I got a coded message. I took off, for British television, to the other side of the planet and to get the witnesses who were on that rig who survived, get them on camera. And, by the way--.

DESVARIEUX: What do they tell you?

PALAST: Hm?

DESVARIEUX: What did they tell you, Greg?

PALAST: Well, the witnesses said, yeah, we--I have tape recordings of them saying it was mayhem, that there was a blowout, it was caused by the cement, by using the nitrogen-laced milkshake cement in the Caspian, the same thing that brought down the Deepwater Horizon, according to the government's investigation. And they covered up.

But they were scared to death for the jobs. We couldn't use their names. They were afraid to even be filmed on camera.

And then on top of it, I was arrested in the nation of Azerbaijan, which is what I call the Republic of BP. I was arrested. They took our film. But I got the film out anyway, because a lot of the film was on a camera inside my pen, you know, a little Austin Powers job that I keep with me.

And, plus, we got confirmation of the blowout from an extraordinary source--of the prior blowout, an extraordinary source, which is the U.S. State Department, that is, the secret cables that I obtained through WikiLeaks. Remember, I'm also working for The Guardian, which has the WikiLeaks cables. And right in there, the Bush State Department under Condi Rice was given the secret information by British Petroleum that they had a blowout, because BP's partners Chevron and Exxon were saying, hey, where's our money from the Caspian Sea? We were making millions a day. You know. And BP told the U.S. ambassador on the QT, look, we had a blowout, so there ain't going to be no more oil for, you know, another year. So they covered it up. And the State Department covered it up, BP covered it up, Chevron and Exxon covered it up.

And those executives from Chevron, Exxon, and BP went to the United States Congress, testified in front of Congress and said, in 50 years we've never had a problem with this kind of drilling offshore. So they actually swore to the fact that they never had a problem, when all three companies knew that they had a disaster just one year earlier. By the way, after they testified, six months later the Deepwater Horizon went down because of the use of this cheap nonsense cement...'

Incredibly (or perhaps not Laughing) '...But the story doesn't end there. Just recently, the Environmental Protection Agency gave BP the green light to resume drilling in the Gulf of Mexico...'

Indeed, Plast is just confirming what has already been laid out in this thread:
- BP and Halliburton knew that a blow out had happened using that particular cement technique
- They knew the same technique was going to be used in the Gulf
- The chances of sealing the leak quickly underwater in the Gulf was slim
- Halliburton, BP chairman, Fabio Fabs all bet that there would be an oil spill and made a fortune
- Blackwater / xi (or whatever they are called) were on the platform immediately before the event
- the execs lied afterwards
- Halliburton destroyed all their data and got a measly $200k fine.
- BP (and hence UK pension funds) financed the rather useless and ineffectual clean up
- local industry and economy was destroyed.

What definition of "evil" do you want to attach to that? Rolling Eyes

No punitive damages on BP because BP and US Government conspired to drill, baby, drill, in the Gulf with cheap cement to seal the well - knowing fully about the previous blow-out in the Caspian Sea. This was an eco-attack designed to make money for some at the expense of the sea-front owners, fishermen, investors in BP and wildlife in the Gulf.

Things get even murkier:
'From the Gulf Oil Spill to Hurricane Harvey, the Algae Conspiracy Has Gone Full Circle':
http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2017/09/05/from-the-gulf-oil-spill-t o-hurricane-harvey-the-algae-conspiracy-has-gone-full-circle/

'Here is the thesis for this article: There are several agendas working in concert and the net effect and byproduct of all them is the creation of large algae deposits for the purpose of energy development. This marks the beginning of a new era in energy usage and many people are being hurt in the process.

Major Changes Coming

As Obama left office, he signed a $12 trillion climate change with the UN based on the Paris agreements. Essentially, your energy is going to skyrocket in cost. Your access to energy is going to be severely controlled. One of the most notable changes we are going witness is the conversion of oil to biofuels which will be controlled by the same case of characters.

One biofuel has emerged as the choice and we are seeing this energy being championed in a major way in the MSM with a plethora of commercials like the following....'

This article seems totally credible to me, knowing the depth of depravity of the NWO Bankster puppeteers and their lack of concern for the environment or the people.

Cynthia: Flesh-Eating Synthetic Bacteria that has Gone Wild
https://journal-neo.org/2016/09/14/cynthia-the-flesh-eating-s/

'...However, in the nearest future, the planet could face yet another “monster” that was bred deep inside US corporate laboratories. We are talking about the first synthetic bacteria – Cynthia, created “to combat oil pollution in the Gulf of Mexico” which, according to the various reports that are often ignored by the corporate media, has mutated and has started attacking animals and humans. Now this highly lethal microorganism is on its way to Europe.

One could recall that back in April 2010 an explosion at a British Petroleum oil rig resulted in millions of barrels of oil contaminating the Gulf of Mexico. Despite the drastic measures taken to prevent an environmental catastrophe, an oil slick produced by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill covered over sixty thousand square miles.

As one of the means of addressing the environmental catastrophe on their hands, Washington decided to take drastic measures, regardless of the possible consequences of those actions. It was at that time when an artificially created microorganism nicknamed Cynthia was unleashed, without any kind of examination of the possible threat it may pose to the environment.

Cynthia is the brainchild of the J. Craig Venter Institute — which was engaged in genetic engineering experiments since the beginning of the 21st century — and Synthetic Genomics Inc, and was created and funded directly by BP. It was believed that Cynthia feeds on oil, but it turns out now that it is equally willing to consume all forms of organic life as well…

In 2011, Cynthia was unleashed in the Gulf of Mexico and in its initial stages of life it was absorbing oil slicks at breathtaking speed. In January, 2011 the Register reported that scientists were particularly impressed by the speed with which the bacteria was eating up its “meal”.
But then this bacteria mutated and soon was feeding on organic lifeforms. Strange reports started coming from the US, like five thousand birds falling victims of an “unknown disease” in Arkansas, or more that a hundred thousand dead fish found off the coast of north Louisiana. It was also reported that a total of 128 British Petroleum employees that participated in the liquidation of the oil slick were struck by some mysterious illness. According to various sources they were forbidden to seek relief in public hospitals, to prevent them from talking to anyone about what has happened to them…

Soon it was recorded that the disease and the symptoms that are now associated with the coastal zone of the Gulf of Mexico began spreading to the continental United States – for example, people who were caught by heavy rains that came from the Gulf of Mexico were also exposed to it.

In fact, such disturbing reports have become pretty common, in spite of the restrictive measures taken by the US government to prevent this information from spreading. In particular, it’s been reported that certain individuals who were unfortunate enough to take take a swim in the Gulf of Mexico often found themselves covered with itching sores only to die in agony a few days later due to extensive internal bleeding.

According to media reports, a person can become Cynthia’s victim under two circumstances: if it penetrated the skin barrier through a wound or if they were unfortunate enough to eat raw seafood infected by this bacteria. Once the bacteria is in the system, it penetrates into the layer between the skin and muscles and starts producing a toxin that disrupts tissues. It is known that Cynthia is capable of reproducing itself rapidly within the infected cells, and that it is immune to antibiotics.
According to the University of the District of Columbia (UDC), up to 40% of the residents of the territories adjacent to the Gulf of Mexico have become infected with severe respiratory and skin diseases, and one in four residents is planning to pack up and leave in the nearest future......'

'Scientist accused of playing God after creating artificial life by making designer microbe from scratch - but could it wipe out humanity?':
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1279988/Artificial-life -created-Craig-Venter--wipe-humanity.html

'...Kenneth Oye, a social scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the U.S., said: 'Right now, we are shooting in the dark as to what the long-term benefits and long-term risks will be.'
[caption]
Pat Mooney, of the ETC group, a technology watchdog with a special interest in synthetic biology, said: 'This is a Pandora's box moment - like the splitting of the atom or the cloning of Dolly the sheep, we will all have to deal with the fall-out from this alarming experiment.'
Dr David King, of the Human Genetics Alert watchdog, said: 'What is really dangerous is these scientists' ambitions for total and unrestrained control over nature, which many people describe as 'playing God'.
'Scientists' understanding of biology falls far short of their technical capabilities. We have learned to our cost the risks that gap brings, for the environment, animal welfare and human health.'
Professor Julian Savulescu, an Oxford University ethicist, said: 'Venter is creaking open the most profound door in humanity's history, potentially peeking into its destiny.
'He is not merely copying life artificially or modifying it by genetic engineering. He is going towards the role of God: Creating artificial life that could never have existed.'
He said the creation of the first designer bug was a step towards 'the creation of living beings with capacities and a nature that could never have naturally evolved'. The risks were 'unparalleled',' he added.
And he warned: 'This could be used in the future to make the most powerful bioweapons imaginable. The challenge is to eat the fruit without the worm....'
