Throughout the ongoing response efforts thousands of people across the globe have offered their ideas for stopping the flow of oil into the Gulf,
containing or recovering it, or cleaning it up.

Mississippi Canyon 252 well. Proposals are reviewed for their technical feasibility and proof of application.
More than 4,800 ideas have been proposed to date. Given this quantity of technical proposals suggested by industry professionals and the public, it
may take some time to technically review each one.
