I think the oil is just under pressure, maybe from heat and confined space, but not because water is displacing it. I am a complete know nothing in
oil dynamics. Some are saying that oil is only in pockets, confined, scattered. Perhaps thats relative to our ability to access them? They may be
connected, all around the planet?
(Could they not simply lower a structure heavy enough to counteract the pressure?
Something with a gasketed bottom...pliable, a plastic or some polymer that won't break down from oil or sea water? Surely they have a handle on how
much pressure is coming from the source?
It could be a donut, a heavy donut with a valved top, leaving options of controlling it or sealing it.) off topic I know.
