Well it worked! They confused us, alright!

I think they should have used gravel in the mud >.<

But it looks like they are using the seabed as the source for the mud?


Nothing personal, but I hope you are wrong, I really do hope this works, because I just don't know what will if it doesn't.

Navy Diver Sets Record with 2,000 foot Dive
www.military.com...
Navy News | PO3 Mark G. Logico | August 07, 2006


MV Kellie Chouest, At Sea - A Navy diver submerged 2,000 feet, setting a record using the new Atmospheric Diving System (ADS) suit, off the coast of La Jolla, Calif., Aug. 1.

Chief Navy Diver (DSW/SS) Daniel P. Jackson of Navy Reserve Deep Submergence Unit (DSU) was randomly selected to certify the ADS suit for use by the Navy.




um that's not a scuba diver. that's a huge pressurized metallic suit that is damn near immobile and is akin to a man standing inside of a small submarine

There is a freaky Freudian like slip , near the end of this clip like around 2:36. The man literally says "I doubt that it was some kind of institutional favor, failure"

Jeez Louise. What sort of favor is going on here, that he mentions in his forward Freudian


He's denying that this had anything to do with an "institutional failure" and somehow says "favor" before correcting himself and saying "failure".

I know, just adding some trivia to the thoughts. =\

I dunno, maybe the fact that human intervention is all but impossible at these depths is a good reason not to drive them so far away from the shoreline.

It is all so confusing anymore.

OK...Either the feed cleared and it's still flowing or another ~loop scam~...

Hmmm...

I STILL don't think this will turn out good...

My personal update

I have no further updates on the progress in the gulf.

I find evidence by visual sight not word of mouth. Therefore It may be morning before I see a clear image of the oil still coming out . If anyone hears of any news that the mud method worked let me no .

DAMN!!!!

I missed what happened, looks like a change in the currents but it's all clear now.

Live feed

Did anyone see what happened why did the view clear?

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


They've been showing us the end of the riser pipe:


Now they're showing us the BOP / wellhead:

OK that thing has to be the wellhead bend:




What else could it be? That bend would have the most fractures, and it has accessory pipes that go with it right there.

Is anyone watching the 'classical' end of the pipe? Is whats spewing at that end brown like at 'wellhead''?

And whats the most pressure machines on a large ship or platform are able to pump out?

I'm trying to figure out how there is a lack of black in the cloud we're all watching, so perhaps they're pushing back at the oil flow with more pressure than the well is pushing up?

FYI: The main well pipe is 21" OD and 20" ID.

So I'm pretty sure that view is the wellhead, and yes it's propaganda BS they haven't been showing it until now that mud is clouding up out of it...



Unless you can show us an image of the BOP from before, spewing black??

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

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.


Can anyone else collaborate my belief that BP is attempting to clog up this
leak the way plaque clogs arteries? That it doesn't happen quickly, but over
time. But they're speeding up the process by force "feeding" the equivalent
of 50,000 Big Macs in 24 hours? Most of the mud will pass through into
the ocean, but gradually the pipe/artery will shut. That's when the cement
is pumped in on top to make it permanent.

If you watch the live feed of the oil blowout, your eyes start playing tricks on you, making it look liked a looped image. 10:30 eastern time here, oil still blowing out like water from a 10,000psi pressure washer. This is seriously a catastrophic failure, I can't believe people "don't care" about this issue.

The water cleared because maybe they stopped pumping mud to see
if the flow has decreased??? Doesn't look like it has. Oh well... time
to start pumping more and faster!

The big oil spill is a huge headache as it is and will be in the future.

I have been a member for quite some time and decided to finally post here something that also has drawn a even deeper concern......

I am not an oil specialist, but regarding the oil field itself, what happens when the oil runs out? What I am trying to say here is if you have a large area that is filled (with oil), and the substance that originally filled that space becomes less and less, what happens to that remaining space?

My concern is this: cave in, collapse, resulting with possible (tsunamis?), or some kind of chain reaction with other (so far undiscovered fields), rupturing and starting up in other areas.

We all know we are made to look in one direction while something bigger (or worse) is going on, but could this also be a sabatoge gone wrong, not realizing the further extent of damage.......Then again, you never know...they probably know all along what the heck they are doing.

Regardless, I am very worried about the "deeper" repercussions of this oil spill. Is there anyone who knows of this kind of stuff?

That last image makes it look like the mud would in effect stop the oil, and that's what appears to be the case as only brown crud can be seen in the feeds, not black sludge.

Meaning, in effect, for the time being, the oil is stopped.

No MUd is a special thing BP makes themselves, I'm not sure where they get it but I know it's heavier than both oil and water.

Yeah BP really did not want to live stream the top of the BOP but congress wanted it. I think Congress and the News could dude a better job of explaining what is happening.

Well i hope it works, it's a good plan, plugging the well with mod and "junk" and then pushing cement once the mud stabilizes the pressure.

But at 170,000 psi they are going to need a bit of luck on their side.

Is that how much psi they're throwing at it? I've been waiting for info on that.

But if the BOP cracked as per that "rumor", then they can't do anything more, correct?

At the rate the flow of information is coming, and the fact the water did clear, one may assume that the BOP crack rumor may have some substantiation?

If the BOP suffered damage during the explosion or collapse, and I don't see that as being far fetched, perhaps there is more to that than just being rumor.

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


LMAO I was kidding dude.

Trust me, I'm not your average Joe;-)

LOL!?!?!?


What are you crazy!!

I'm no doctor but i'm pretty sure stopping the pumping of mud to clear the view is a pretty bad idea lol.

You want to keep pumping non stop to not loose any gain you may have made.

I think it was just the current changing. You can see the gush tilted to the left slightly.

Now it's starting to fog over again.

No i'm not sure how much PSI they are throwing at it, I do know they can pump at 30,000 horsepower but that's about it.

170,000, is an estimate of the amount of pressure of the oil well, the oil and gas coming out.

I do wish one of these reporters would ask BP how much PSI they are able to pump at.

Right now it does not matter until they plug the BOP top with Junk.

Video shows at least four distinct spouts, timestamped @ 19:5?

now,

SHVIT!

updating as we speak, (i was going to say it has gone to 3....)

one main friggin blowhole,
enlargement of spout on left hand side of screen as well.

maybe mudd might cause further COLLAPSE?

seemingly the hole isnt closing its expanding?

look! compare above photo to present.
