Hunting For Oil | WAMU 88.5 - American University Radio

Hunting For Oil

An Earth Day special coincides with the two-year anniversary of the April 20 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the worst in U.S. History. What became of all that oil? And what's the future of offshore drilling? Segments will include human stories of those hardest hit in the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. NPR's Alex Chadwick will investigate a very rich oil field that lay overlooked for decades in central Utah, and was then essentially given away by Chevron. It has produced about one billion dollars of high-grade oil since its discovery eight years ago.
