Politically if we use a nuke it gives Iran the right to say "we need a nuclear weapon in case of an oil disaster in our own country, you can't argue against us having one anymore" in this big nuclear summit that's coming up.

If we nuke the well. Chances are good that the sea floor will collapse and things will get a lot worse very fast. Deadly gasses will bubble to the surface, giant tidal waves will blast coastal regions. It will be massive.

Should of been done thirty days ago with a conventional explosive. Yield weight of conventional bomb being equal to Nuke would get job done just as well. A pound of feathers weights the same as a pound of lead. 1kilo ton eguals 1 x1000x 2.2 = 22,000 pounds ( long shinny conventional bomb shaped charge ) Nose cone. A 1/2 kilo =11,000 lb. bomb .That was a low yield nuke because I read the drill hole was only three hundred feet down in one of the russians well shut downs. You all saw the nuke and it was artillary size fractional one kilo. 0 to 1 kilo at most. Somebody needs to Wake up the goverment. BP will never do this because actions speak louder than words . What are they attemping to do right now. WAKE UP shipon the OIL.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is Simmons the energy experts view of using a small Nuke to seal the well.

Looks like one of those corny 50's si-fi films was cut up and then voiced over by some hungry Hungarian......

1. BP can't sell radioactive oil.
2. The earthquake plates and zones.
3. Bikini Atoll - www.bikiniatoll.com... with it's water so sterile that fish cannot thrive.
4. A Nuke behaves different whether it is a groundburst, a seaburst or an airburst. www.fas.org...



Your number 3 is actually completely wrong.

Marine life flourishes at Bikini Atoll test site


It was blasted by the largest nuclear weapon ever detonated by the United States but half a century on, Bikini Atoll supports a stunning array of tropical coral, scientists have found.
In 1954 the South Pacific atoll was rocked by a 15 megatonne hydrogen bomb 1,000 times more powerful than the explosives dropped on Hiroshima.

The explosion shook islands more than 100 miles away, generated a wave of heat measuring 99,000ºF and spread mist-like radioactive fallout as far as Japan and Australia.

But, much to the surprise of a team of research divers who explored the area, the mile-wide crater left by the detonation has made a remarkable recovery and is now home to a thriving underwater ecosystem.

Not forgetting the tsunami that will wash all the oil contaminated sea water several miles INLAND!!!

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.


They also proposed to built underground storage for natural gas, using same method. Molten rock forms glass-like walls, almost a perfect sphere in shape. I think I saw photos of one of these storage facilities.

Hmmm...well, if this is what they think they need to do, then do it.

But, as a resident of the rather FLAT and AT SEA LEVEL area called South Florida, I would say that I will have my things in order on that day just in case there is some sort of tsunami.

That way, if the sea floor totally collapses and spawns a massive wave that most likely will ripple around the whole Gulf, Caribbean Basin and out through the Florida Straits, I will know to get on my roof. I don't know how big a wave it would take to come clear across the Everglades. I imagine it would have to be a fairly big one to make it all the way to Miami area.

Wow, I had read a few articles about the soviets using nukes to stop oil and gas leaks.

Never thought I'd see a video of it though! Thanks!

Yes that would work. But think about it. If we drill down to the existing well bore Why wouldnt we just deflect the pressure to new well bore. leaving no pressure in leaking well. Cement the old one off and cap the new one or produce the oil and gas like regular.. Same results no Nukes. same amount of time. infact this is what they are doing right now. they have 2 rigs drilling down to the leaking well.

With relief wells you have to be very accurate to intercept the other well. And many times they take much longer than expected. It could take 10 months instead of 2 for example. With this gusher I'm not sure the worlds oceans could take it.

With the explosive you just have to get close to the well. I'm guessing you could get it done much faster saving more sea life and property. You can't just rush in and Nuke it you have to have experts evaluate if the area is right for the procedure. We can't get over emotional and do something stupid.

This guy will scare you into using the Nuke.

Great post, but a nuke is not the way we need to go. I worked offshore for 10 years and I’ve worked for Oceaneering for 4 of those years. If they (BP, Transocean) wanted to stop that leak, they could have by now. Boots and Coots offered to do it for free, but BP said no. Here is the process, and how it would work. First you take the ROV and cut off the BOP or cut fresh pipe (it can be done with a diamond saw, separate from the hydraulic pack on the ROV) second you use a hydraulic plug to drive down the well. Third you activate the plug. It will hold back the pressure. There rated for high psi. Fourth you concrete the well in and cap it. We have done it before. Depth is not an issue here we have the technology, But BP is avoiding this. To possibly use a nuke. To some of you that remember history, the Russians wanted to do the same thing to us, to take out the southern part of the United States out so they wouldn’t have to deal with us. There has already been plains made to evacuate the Gulf coast anything south of I-10. This info comes from the lead Chemist working on the case. This is only to be done under the worst case situation. What will happen is when crude oil releases chemicals it starts to kill every thing off in the water. When sulfur in the crude heats up due to sun light it turns to sulfur dioxide. It would make the coastline a bad place to live. Looking at the situation and how it’s being handled. If they wanted to use this situation to claps the economy, this is the perfect way to do it. It would displace every one along the coastline causing it to be uninhabitable forcing the Government to buy off everyone’s home and property. This would claps the economy. The south could be taken over with out a shot being fired, because displaced people will go were there told to go buy the Government.
But this hasn’t happened yet so in joy life wile we still can. Got to go GOD Bless

In theory I think this is a good idea using explosives to crush the well pipe....but why a nuclear bomb....it seems as though modern explosives could harness enough energy like the bunker blaster or some other bomb that could be used instead

I had heard from a guy who was with the DOE in the 1980's that the Russians had done this, with good results. For something like this to come close to working we would need to digg under the well head at some level, I don't know how deep, but deep under the sea floor. The well (ocean floor) is a mile down and the bore goes down (I think I heard) three miles. That sounds REALLY deep to me. If we designed some kind of nuclear shaped charge, perhaps for a bunker buster, we might be able to direct the explosion in a direction. I don't see Obama taking this kind of risk unless there is no alternative. As far as I know we don't have a pure fussion bomb, they all requre a fission trigger and that means some radiation. Interesting solution, but it makes me nervous.

Great post thank you very much. Bp needs out of the picture. Three strikes and you are out. They were out a long time ago. FBI needs to go in and conviscate all their data for the independant contractor can use all there sounding information to see what the rock structure is like to plan the game plan. Bp officals should be jailed as terrorist that they are. Russians need to be called in forever help they can give. Bp only wants to shipon the oil . Thoose nuts will have three leaks from the same oil well plus the one that is listed nere by, with their worthless idea that they'll try in August. Get them out of the way!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice Idea just one thing the pipe and riser is only pressure tested to 11000 psi when you insert the hydralic ram in the pipe And apply the force to the ram to off set the 6800 to 7000 psi. oil and gas coming up the pipe will fracture and may fracture the riser and the well head couple just at the surface making it almost impossible to pump cement in it insuring no leaks after the bomb is set off that would crush the pipe below. I used to make the pipe in deep oil wells . If there is any weakness it splits like a gun barrel would . I ran the test machine it uses a hydralic ram like you state. Water is used if the pipe fails you can hear the rupture all over the place when the water and debrie stikes the armor steel protective door.

Also notice the ruptures in the riser (multible stress fractures in the steel )in a same area almost. That explosin plus the water pressure has already exceeded 11000 psi. The pipe and riser steel is internally damaged when steel is broken or fractured the end resembles a stone like surface. If that steel had (a IF scan done it would show hair line fractures or checking in the metal itself. ............. I ran a Met. lab.

the plug im talking about will hold back a lot more than 11000psi t we use them all the time when we cap or PNA a well halberton has pumps that can do the job. If they cant get clean pipe, cut off the BOP or un flange it from the well head...
