Dont know if this has been posted somewhere but the search didnt show anything.

I thought with the talk about possibly using a nuke to stop the oil leak this video would be of interest.

Though this is for a gas well and it is on dry land, the explosion still takes place underground so the concept is the same.

Great illustrations on how it supposedly worked.





Personally I am still shocked they didn't just use a modified containment cover that could mulch up or chemically alter or heat up the hydrates that blocked the first cover.

Obviously a nuke is a measure of last resort but its interesting to see how it was used in the past.

Awesome! That was a great little film. I was just reading about using a nuke to seal the gas/oil mess. I like the idea, we should do it asap.

There was remarkably little disruption of the surface. It seems like if that method is used in the gulf, there might not be a tsunami afterward. Unless their is the chance of seafloor collapse. Of course, there is probably a chance of that anyway.

I would have to concur, seems that it's not too devastating.

Edited: to omit radioactive contamination concern, due to further information from this thread.

An excellent how to video

All radiation was contained, excellent

This should keep those use no nuke p*ss**s quiet.

Excellent Vid.

Notice how before the nuke goes off, gas is escaping the bore hole into the surrounding earth. Then it is blowing out from underground far away from the well hole.

IMO, this is what is now happening under the Gulf of Mexico, and one of the reasons that we need the military to nuke it now!

This was an excellent video. An interesting non-war use of a nuclear bomb. And no detectable radiation is also good.

Well tbh after looking at the vid and seeing the gulf and knowing this can continue for months I am coming over on the side of using a low yield nuke to plug it. I cant see any other way this is going to be plugged, the pressure the oil is coming out must be enormous.

They have already found two other locations where oil has started to leak.

The argument that a nuclear explosion will cause oil to leak from other locations has become redundant.

A failed nuke shot could make it worse, but a calculated risk is worth the chance. The benifits out weigh the risks IMO.

This does seem promising. The risk of sea floor collapse or creating a large fissure is alarming and since this is underwater, the radioactive risk needs to be considered. Yes it is a similar situation but there are a lot of differences.

2 questions:

What do you suppose would have happened if the heat/shockwave of the nuke had hit the gas chamber?

And how long do you suppose it would take for a secondary well to be dug in which to drop the nuke?

Bigger BOOM

Hopefully they have already begun the process.

ILMAOL...let's be honest here fellas, there is a small part of you that just wants to see a nuke go off.


I live on the Treasure Coast of Florida and if they are going to do it, I say July 4th is the perfect day.

Are there vids of the unsuccessful cases. That case succeeded because the conditions for success applied...a small percentage.
Do any of know the geology under deepwater wells? Nobody does.
But you want to go forward!

If you can do this a mile down
If you can do this under such water pressure
If you can do so without seafloor collapse
If you can do so without negatively effecting the aquatic ecology

Go for it. If you can't do all of these, then don't .

My input.

When and where did this take place?
Have there been any repeat studies of the area?
I just cannot believe the animation, and blindly hope that there will be no radiation leaking into the gulf. If there is a radiation leak, it will last for Hundreds, of Thousands of years!

I fear just haphazardly dropping a nuke will make the damage worse.
Here is my thread.

Maybe the economic crisis and public demand for a restoration in the founding priciples of the country will all come to a head when the nuke goes off.

It might be a good closure to all problems and cause a global sigh of relief and a renewed belief in the American republic or it might cause everything to collapse all at once.

A reset button if you wish. A second chance or no chance at all.

What do you have to lose?

I had no idea this has been used before 5 times by the Russians.
I just thought it was something never before tried and was against it. Now I'm more ok with it, It's looking like we may have no other choice.

For a bigger boom to occur you have to have enough available oxygen for combustion b/c pure fuel is not combustible.

As far as the nuke option is concerned though....if it didn't work you could end up with not only oil floating on the surface of the water...methane gas sublimating into the water and the atmosphere...but radioactive oil and gas. That sound like alot of fun now doesn't it.
