video coverage, all I care about is closing the well! What I don't understand is WHY IT TAKES THEM 3-4 MONTHS to drill an intersecting hole and why
the american government has'nt stepped in to nuke it instead! Waiting that long to shut down an out-of-control well seems a terrible idea due to the
volume of oil and gas it will release. The russians have already volunteered to help america if they need it because they have the appropriate
experience in such matters, but apparently the american government is not interested!
To add to all the fear mongering, I am seeing some depopulation based posts from self-declared experts and that has me worried somewhat. Could it be
that management knew about the faulty equipment and used it to intentionally cause the disaster OR was it simply a case of neglect and financial
If I'm not mistaken, the BOP is a Halliburton product. And it uses such software technology, to see all the events, 'real time monitoring...'
To hell with that program....
