Folks, we might NEED outside help to plug this monster. Top kill obviously has failed. I knew it was a long shot. It is too deep and it is under too
much pressure. I believe this latest attempt to cut and cap it will also fail for the same reasons. It is just too far down and the oil that is
spewing is under immense pressure. This means we are going to witness AT LEAST two or three more months of gushing oil while we are waiting for the
relief wells to be drilled. It may very well go from bad to much much worse when they attempt this next cut and cap fix which will open up the flow
even more (20% more they think).
These so-called attempts to fix the leak are just smokescreens to make it look like they are trying something. The real fix in the works are the
relief wells, and those could take a lot longer because they need to intersect with the leaking well, and that is by no means an easy task. They will
probably make several miscalculations in drilling the relief wells which could mean this thing may not get plugged for several months. Sure, we have
the technology to fix it (at a snail's pace), but what we don't have is the luxury of time.
Now would be a good time for TPTB to whip out the disclosure card. We just can't afford to wait months while the leak more than likely will get
bigger and the damage done is incalculable.
