Thanks jcwren, my bad. I blame the British, even though it doesn't appear to be an imperial/metric issue. More info found at wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/55_gallon_drum
Blarg! There is a difference between bpm (barrels per day) and gpm (gallons per day). The current estimated rate is 25,000 barrels per day, times 55 gallons per barrel, equals 1,375,000 gallons per day. Which isn't any less depressing, but at least it didn't fail 3rd grade math.
