|Black stuff floating on the water suspiciously near a riser but definitely not oil|
Perhaps that is unfairly cynical of me, to suspect that Oil producers might operate different standards in third world countries. I did previously publish this photograph under the title " Lies, damned lies and down right hypocrisy" but i was informed of the error of my ways ( by the oil company) and now stand corrected so you will be pleased to see I have corrected the title to " The truth , The whole truth and nothing but the truth", I hope this meets with greater approval and it will be seen that I have amended my ways, I have also purchased a new camera, because it was quite clearly a fault with my camera that caused the black stain across that image, and all the other photos I took facing that structure.
I was also also quite clearly wrong in my assessment of the French Oil Company Official, and I should not have doubted his assertion that the mysterious black slick round the platform was nothing to do with the platform , that it was not oil and had drifted in from somewhere else. I am now enjoying my new found state of enlightenment and understanding.
