BP would Need to Bring Equipment From Texas to Contain South Australia Oil Spill

BP’s attempts to halt any oil spill from planned drilling off South Australia’s coast would depend on transporting recovery equipment from Houston, Texas, internal documents have revealed.
In information submitted to the federal government, BP says equipment to cap leaking oil wells is based in Singapore, more than 4,800km away, while a containment response system would have to be transported from Houston in the US, more than 14,000km away.
