I think they are placing the equipment that will send out the kill mud.

Saw something come down from the surface earlier.

The CNN feed is not live and/or a different camera. The only one live is the BP one I think.

They are looking to perform this 'Top Kill' dawn of Wednesday, so any work done now I would imagine would be in preperation.

Good thread and I hope others are up for an all nighter.

It's CNN. Are you really surprised? They can't do anything right without completely ruining it.

This business will get out of control. It will get out of control and there will be nothing left.

I think this is being done intentionally.

WTH are we seeing on the CNN feed?! I was watching this on the weekend it was boring footage of the cap, I hardly even saw the oil. WHAT IS THAT? There are at least 4 leaks on this view alone.

Anyone have any idea when it started? I hope to all hells that is something we are deliberately doing, b/c it looks for all the world like we may have had a major escalation.

Edit to add this:
"Equipped with underwater robots, BP engineers plan on Wednesday to inject heavy drilling fluids into the mile- deep well, a complex maneuver known as "top kill" that has never been attempted before at such depths.

Before they try to seal the well, they pumped so-called "mud" into the well head on Tuesday to gauge if the well could be damaged at high pressure and augment the leak."

The CNN stream is footage of the dispersants being released.

Watching the BP live feed right now, and the ROV is doing a bunch of stuff. So this isnt the top kill yet, just preparation? BTW does anyone know what the top kill is? What it entails?

Edit: Im confused I heard on the news that they were doing Top Kill tonight?

yep, R2D2 is doing his thing.. they are preparing, supposed to commence Top Kill at dawn, east coast time, it could be before that tho

top kill, they are going to pump a heavy mud like substance into the well, so as to seal it..

I am betting it isn't going to work.

I'm getting tired of posting the same link over and over, so here.




mms://a246.l9789246245.c97892.g.lm.akamaistream.net/D/246/97892/v0001/reflector:46245


Add that to the video program of your choice. Its live, decent quality, and is official. Taken from the source code of the BP website thing.

It works. Trust me. And it's LIVE.

Awesome thanks for the explanation!

Why do they call it top kill? if its sticky mud they should call it 'shoddy fix' imo

On another site, a poster claimed that his 'source' (a freind at BP) called him and told him that a coupler had broke 400 feet below the surface of the seabed and was 'unfixable'. He said that BP decided to keep this a secret. [True or not, the pictures sure seem to indicate that oil is blowing out of the seafloor right now.]


If this has, in fact, happened, we're looking at a disaster of a whole other magnitude. I'm not even sure what options will be available if there's a subsurface breach. You see what happens with things like this every so often in the news. There'll be a water main that breaks and erodes all of the ground underneath and then everything collapses. The difference here being that there are no shutoff valves below grade, and it's not water we're talking about here.

Many on this thread have stated that they think there's been a depression around the pipes in the ROV footage. If that's the case, what you stated about there being a subsurface breach, is likely accurate. I saw the devastation in Kuwait from the oil well fires and oil out in the Persian Gulf. I hope this doesn't happen in the Gulf of Mexico, but it's beginning to look like a very real possibility.
