Yep they match now. Going to keep both up and watch.

Did anyone see what happened to disturb the water? Or, was it just a current change or something?

ETA - wow yeah I think thats the mud, all KINDS of debris now.

Any reasons, why? Top kill?

It would appear that the water is getting muddied. This could confirm that we're seeing mud spewing from the line, but this could suck for monitoring for actual progress.

Anyone watching the pipe end to see what is coming from there? I don't know what link shows that.

Nice work! I too thought that something didn't seem right about this leaking pipe laying on the sea bed and I wondered why the dome device was so large, I just didn't put the two together. Again I say, nice work!

Do we have a OK Joe its a good go yet?

Is this top method working ?

If the water starts to clear in front of the camera, can we assume that
the Top Kill procedure is having success?

Someone put on a diving suit, dive down and give us the news

BP said at 7:30pm CDT today that it will take 24 hours before THEY
know if it is working. Notice he said "is" working. I think this Top
Kill is going to be kind of a slow procedure because most of the
mud gets blown back out of the pipe into the seabed. They're
trying to plug it up the way a human artery clogs with plaque..
A slow build up until nothing can get through. (IMO) -cwm

this happened last night too, not sure what's going on.... hard to imagine mud staying in place with that much pressure.... maybe they just blew out all the mud?

posted on May, 26 2010 @ 09:05 PM
Any truth to the rumor that they killed TopKill...

Due to a crack in the BOP?

21:09 and it seems to be clearing a litte.

It looks worse, but it could just be the mud.

Where did you hear that rumor?

The oil in the gulf of mexico has made me have nightmares , last night I had nightmares all night of this movie right here...From this gulf problem

the furthest a human with scuba gear can dive is like 100 feet give or take. the lowest even a billion dollar modern submarine can dive is only about 700-800 feet.
this oil leak is at a depth of 5000ft. which is one of the reasons it's so hard for them to do anything because divers can't go down there and they must work with clunky robots

Word of mouth..

Looking for confirmation myself.

If true...the shizz just hit the fan way harder.

I'm sitting here, watching Anderson Cooper's report ... VIDEO and i keep thinking to myself what happened to new orleans during Katrina.... and if a hurricane were to pass that way again while this mess was out there? Imagine, Katrina with all this oil, what a mess, what a shame. And it is a very real possibility, for anyone on the western gulf coast.

*Atention OP and everyone*

There appears to be a bit of confusion as to the pipe flow and the main well flow.

BP has not been confusing us by showing us the wrong feed, they have always shown feed of the main well the difference now is that there is a ton and a half of MUD gushing out of it.

All that flow you are now able to see come out of the main well or the top of the BOP was not like that before they started pumping the mud.

What you see now is the Mud fighting the push of the oil pressure and spewing out the top like a huge gush.

Congress demanded that BP live stream the main well instead of the pipe flow, BP objected because it would confuse the hell out of people and make them think it was oil and not MUD.

That's what you see now.

I still don't see how this is going to work tho, looks to me like all the mud is getting flushed out the top, I'd like to be able to see the pipe flow and think they should switch back and forth.

I have a feeling this will not do a damn thing.

Use my prior link with VLC Media Player...

Link Network Stream...paste URL...

Most reliable I've found so far...

Windows Media Player don't seem to like some feeds I noticed...

CNN just reported a live update. Still waiting to see if operation
will be successful. Won't know until Thursday late afternoon...unless it's
wildly successful and the flow begins to subside tonight.

On a personal note, I now have a new appreciation for the men and women
(yes there are women "roughnecks") who work in the land and ocean oil
fields. They have to be razor sharp, smart, brave and tough as nails.
Hopefully they are paid well and have a good insurance package.
