NEW YORK, December 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Market Buzz Report, an online portal for penny stock investors, issues key stock analysis for BP plc (NYSE: BP), ReneSola Ltd. (NYSE: SOL), FreeSeas Inc (NASDAQ: FREE), Plug Power Inc(NASDAQ: PLUG), Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE: RAD).

Three years after the Deepwater Horizon disaster, BP plc (ADR)(NYSE: BP) is leading an industry charge to develop technology that can retrieve oil from formations that are so deep under the sea floor, and under such high pressure and temperature, that conventional equipment would melt or be crushed by the conditions. BP's Tiber field in the Gulf of Mexico makes the Macondo field look like a mere puddle; it is about twice as deep - 35K ft. below the sea floor - and is thought to hold 20x the amount of oil. Another disaster could threaten BP's existence, but success could restore its fortunes and perhaps its reputation: "There's 10B-20B barrels of oil just for BP in this" - worth up to $2T at today's prices - says Kevin Kennelly, who runs BP's global technology operations.
