"Markey: BP 'Lying or Grossly Incompetent' on Worst-Case Scenario"

"A key Democratic lawmaker revealed an internal BP document  on Sunday showing that the embattled oil giant's worst-case scenario projected that 100,000 barrels of oil could be released each day that the well remains uncapped.

Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), chairman of the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, said that number was in stark contrast to BP's public projections at the time the study was finished that only 5,000 barrels would be lost each day."
