Just stop lieing to the public AND START DRILLING ON BOTH SIDES OF THE WELL.
The oil companies know very well there is no other reasonable way to contain this issue,they have to start drilling now,they didnt consider drilling
to this point because they are idiots---dont kid yourself IDIOTS.
What they are concerned about is the way the well is ANCHORED,imagine a thick milkshake,stick a regular sized milkshake straw into the cup and wiggle
it around--notice how the thickness of the milkshake dictates how much you can wiggle the straw.imagine trying to thread twenty smaller straws
together and then stick them down through the first larger straw and make them hit a dead center spot on the bottom of the cup.
If the large straw moves around a lot you will never hit the center of the cup bottom,every time the large straw shifts position the angle of the
smaller straws being run through it changes and you go off target.Try it at home the milkshake is cheaper than the billion they already wasted.
The solution is to freeze solid an area around the large straw to make it more stable or solid,thenyou will have a sort of floating but stable AIMING
STRAW IF YOU WILL.
Now we can hit the bottom of the cup,dead center and poke through the bottom to get at the oil.
Oooops,forgot that the area under the bottom of the cup is pressurised like a can of shaving creme,have to find a way to let out a little at a
Eureeka!!!we will attatch a shaving creme can top with a button on it to THE LARGE STRAW,then we will run the twenty little straws through the NEW
TOP,down through the big straw and we will poke a little hole through the bottom of the cup,now when the pressure from the can under the cup is
released it has to come through the little straw to get to the top and then it hits the top part with the button and we can let out as little or as
much as we choose when we choose in a controlled manner JUST LIKE RELEASING SHAVING CREME.
Things are going just tickety boo,as long as the big straw STAYS FROZEN IN PLACE and everything else is sealed tight.
If something goes wrong with the top part after we are done and the shaving creme starts coming out uncontrolled,we have to stop the creme from coming
out so we can put a new button top on and regain control of the flow.
First we have to blow something BACK DOWN AT THE SHAVING CREME IN THE CAN THAT WANTS TO GET OUT,to force it down,like blowing down through your
milkshake straw.Then when we are blowing hard enough to keep the creme in the can we QUICKLY PUT ON A NEW TOP AND THEN LET ER RIP.
The main concern when we are replacing the top part is that THE BIG STRAW STAY FROZEN IN PLACE BECAUSE IF IT MOVES TO MUCH OR COMES LOOSE THE PRESSURE
OF THE SHAVING CREME WILL BLOW OUT THE LARGE STRAW AND EVERYTHING ATTATCHED TO IT.
Then we may as well nuke it.
So what is really happening now is bp is or was initially praying that they could just replace the top like I just explained,problem is that it isnt
working so well because THEY CANT BLOW DOWN THE MILKSHAKE STRAW HARD ENOUGH TO KEEP THE SHAVING CREME IN THE CAN.
And they ARE DEATHLY AFRAID that the big straw will be blown out of the cup from the great pressure.
The most reliable solution wasnt the first one they tried ,the first one was the popular and cheap one.
Now they have to set up more big straws to cut into the original hole and divert the pressure off to another line with a button top,possibly two lines
with two tops,when they have at least two lines splitting the pressure they can then begin push the pressure back down in a controlled manner ,then
they can control the well from the new line that has a good top,and then they fix the old top.
But this costs as much as drilling the first well,oops I mean ten times as much in an emergency,six billion ought to do it.
I happen to know a couple of great crews in Alberta that have the skills to consult on this baby.
But alberta is like Texas everything is big and expensive.So bring the six billion and lets start making hole.
Anyone with rig experience will understand that I am not following all of the proper steps and am skipping most of the important info,just trying to
keep it simple,I really dont need to hear from any lifers trying to tell me how to get to the rodeo.Yall already know its not my first.
Let me put it to you this way,whoever did the casting for the movie Armageddon with Bruce Willis,WAS DEAD ON THE MONEY,the monkeys you saw that made
up the crew sent to save the planet are EXACTLY LIKE 90% FO THE THE RIGGERS I WORKED WITH FOR YEARS.
I mean really these monkeys are operating these systems,and sorry to say I was a maverick and will tell you that I wasnt part of the old boys
club,EVER.I came up the hard way,no favours.People ,imagine a retard from the missisipi swamps somehow bonking his head and waking up smart just long
enough to learn to do a basic job,then NEVER EVER LETTING THAT JOB GO BECAUSE WHEN HE LEARNED A NEW TRICK AFTER SAY--TEN FREAKING YEARS---HE WOULD
MOVE UP AND PUT COUSIN JEB IN HIS OLD SPOT,jeb will never work for Nasa.
My point is there are a lot of idiots on these rigs and there are no idiot police to save us,its like an imbred family that only rarely takes in new
blood and then only to screw them long enough to keep the family surviving.Everyone stays stupid and no one can think on their feet,and that my
friends is what a rigger is SOMEONE WITH THE ABILITY TO THINK ON THEIR FEET.
Sorry for our luck but good ole JEB ended up somehow driving BPs nice big rig,so to speak.Looks like he had a wee acident.
Fixing it is good but lets at least understand it was human error right off the bat.
Watch the tv show license to drill,it is about land rigs but if you have any rig knowledge and you watch the show you will see so many stupid things
being done not just stupid but in some cases BROADCAST NATIONALLY, deadly,I have seen several roughnecks almost sacrificed by their stupid drillers
with their stupid tool pushes watching the floor while they almost die.
The average viewer sees something slip out of a guys control and bump something else but they arent aware that WHATEVER IT IS ON A RIG IT IS DEADLY
WHEN YOU LOSE CONTROL,a simple length of pipe out of control can break open a high pressure valve if it strikes it,kill a righand,of create a myriad
of other serious dangers.
A simple mistake by someone who for whatever reason isnt on the ball can end up causing a situation like we have here,something as simple as one guy
lieing about performing a regularly scheduled seal replacement that is done at one quarter of the seals life to ensure a large safety margin
exists,you see this cat needed a cigarette break and he knew the seal was replaced WAY TO EARLY SO HE FIGURED HE COULD SKIP A CHANGE----problem is a
week later the man on his opposite shift ALSO THINKS THE SAME THING,or possibly for some reason there is what they think an informed decision to delay
that replacement with the understanding by management that there was a specific amount of life left on the seal----the safety margin that was screwed
by the idiot.
One cigarette break by one idiot,combined with a circumstantial secondary decision made by management with incorrect feedback from the righands and
BANGO ,here we are.
Any rigger can tell you what they need to do,the real question is why they havent started.
I must add that the upper management of these major companies are to blame for allowing underqualified personell to be in positions to allow these
errors to happen,they are cheap and they sacrifice quality of employee for morons who will break every rule that exists to drill fast and cheap holes
and in the process they endanger lives and the environment for a few dollars and a shiny safety award coffe mug.
Has anyone at BP resigned yet over this?
