Abstract For roughly eight weeks (February 10 to March 31, 1970), wells on the Chevron Oil Company platform Charlie in the Main Pass Oil Field (MP41C), Gulf of Mexico, were out of control, spewing crude oil and natural gas into the air from the platform level. The report documents the observed and potential pollution effects, and pollution control efforts connected with the above casualty for the purpose of preparing a timely report. The objective was to put a small multi-discipline team of scientists and engineers in the field to make observations and conduct interviews with participants in the casualty, while the events were still freshly in mind. For the most part, the information presented herein is culled from interviews with Federal, State and local agencies involved in the casualty or with the resources of the area. Off-the-record interviews were held with a representative of the Chevron Oil Company. Information was culled from numerous technical publications, newspapers and from public records. (Author)
