Somebody check out Shandi ROV1. Somethings going on there. I've seen chunks of something? dropping out of the smoke? oil? looked to be about fist size maybe a little bigger.

That's asphalt. It's part of the dense crude oil cocktail, but even denser than water. So it sinks.

Yes.. I believe it is an illusion from that yellow object and light.. now the questions are.. what is that yellow thing and how come the leak looks so much worse?



The only problem I have with that is, why hasn't anyone made note of it before now? I'm hoping it's something simple like lighting. And I agree, like I said before this looks a lot more violent then it did before. Strange.

Yep, i just went to the BP site and several others with different cams. The BOP is on fire!!! How do you put out a fire that is under 5000ft of water already? and will the flames drop back into the bore hole igniting the gas in the reservoir?

If this happens will the gas or liquid methane explode? and if so will it collapse the reservoir releasing all the oil and methane at once? How big will the earth quake be from the collapse of the ceiling (reservoir is a giant cavern). Will all that oil and methane kill the oceans or even all of us?

it is time for Obama to come clean. Do they already know we are all about to die?

Methane can burn underwater but the basic rule is that fire needs oxygen to burn. So if it is burning what's putting oxygen in the water. Could the riser be back feeding air into the well? If so what would spark it?

Maybe they're feeding it oxygen and burning on purpose.. or it is an illusion, but there is no doubt it looks like flames. I don't see flames in the other feed, so I think it is an illusion, but there is still something different going on down there.

Some "scientists" have already suggested that we go nuclear on its ass. The fission event would melt bedrock and everything else, thereby sealing the well permanently.

Those in charge, however, aren't seriously considering the nuclear option.

Yup, it took forever to connect but it is on fire.

I just looked at the live feed.

It looks like the gusher has become bigger since this morning.

I never thought of that.. they burn the methane at the ship.. could it have traveled down and getting oxygen from the surface through the pipe?

Not to be the one but that is no illusion. That is fire.

In the left portion of the live feed, last line, it says:

"Herc 6: Dispersant Ops"

Is anyone else seeing the same thing? I wonder if they are injecting dispersant right into the well head itself? I'm not sure what the words mean at the top, but it sounded interesting to me.

As far as it being on fire, I can see that it looks like fire, but I will have to go with Doc's assessment of the issue until someone can show me evidence that this thing can indeed catch on fire at 5,000 feet below the sea.


Peace be with you.

Yeah, all their current attempt still live the well operable, if they close the well permanently they'll lose hundreds of millions.

The only way it could burn would be because they inject liquid oxygen.

What i don't understand is why they have not tried to inject liquid oxygen and igniting it.

It would be like a rocket motor but alot of the oil would burn.
and almost all of the methane.

As for the oil on the surface being red its because there is a lot of water emulsified in the oil because of the dispersant and the long trip to the surface.

I have already heard that they plan to burn all the barrier islands and wet lands that have been soaked with oil this fall.
They claim it will protect the plant life better then allowing the oil to stay.

Don't forget, the junk pouring out of the Earth down there is very dense, almost a solid, actually, and it contains lots of asphalt — it's a weird-ass concoction, and one of its chemical components does appear to be bright orange... Look at the stuff that's going to the surface:



Now, imagine this orange crap coming out under intense pressure, being sprayed out of the wellhead, and illuminated by 2000 watt deep-water floodlights... Could conceivably look like orange flames or even volcanic magma.

I dunno Doc.. if you look at all the live feeds on the page you can easily tell whatareas the lights are lighting up..

I agree the lights can have that effect. Earlier in the month it made the yellow pipe look like it was glowing yellow hot.

But this does not look like it is consistent with lighting because it's too intermittent. If a light was causing this, everything in front of the light would light up.. that is not happening..

Plus you can easily see what parts the lights do light up at the same time to compare it to.

I think that it might be one of the many lights from down there that causes the "fire" look, but regardless, that fxxing thing does NOT look contained what so ever. I guess this will be a slight problem for BP, eh?

Yes the Skandi is in charge of dispersants.

So is that what they are doing to the oil when it comes out? Are they actually pumping dispersant into the pipe?

This is what the Dispersant Ops looked like on June 3rd. Don't know if that's what they're still doing. Someone mentioned liquid oxygen. IDK.

That's what is almost has to be, a dispersant, maybe it's more reflective to light which is what gives it the fire effect. Are they supposed to be trying something new, or has anyone seen this effect before?

Wow that looks completely different. I guess a lot can change in a week.

The last time I saw the actual dispersants was when it was coming out of a 1" wide hose.. not high volume compared to the leak. The dispersants look white when the light hits it.. maybe they are using different dispersants that look orange when the light hits it?
