Wouldn't the amount burned be in proportion to the amount of oxygen injected, they would have full control of the flame. Ever played with a blow torch? Same principle only metering the amount of gas instead of oxygen. I dunno.

You may be right, no flame, but i am still holding out for a cookie.

I just got on the vid feed, It won't load for me. I'm on ubuntu, so it might be that, but I would think that it would work. Anyone else? Did they pull the feed?

I'm kind of fascinated with what's happening on the feed from the Viking Poseidon 2... They've been working to drop a huge snap-hook into the middle of the wreckage — obviously trying to do a little salvage or move the wreckage around... Takes forever to accomplish the simplest-seeming tasks remotely at that depth.

Damn... This is kind of intense, watching the salvage operation. I keep expecting to see big coils of cable come crashing down, like that scene in The Abyss... I know, a mediocre movie, but it had its moments. Waiting for that crane boom to land on their heads for five solid minutes was nerve wracking.

What I'm watching is an 8' x 24' bucket being lowered at around 4900 feet... Viking Poseidon is all over it, little claws snapping and everything. BP should offer a soundtrack with this.

I'm thinking John Williams, maybe. No, wait, Danny Elfman.

can you link this? Not sure which one you're watching.

And regarding the op, I have to wonder what changed or what happened to make it look like the leak is on fire. It def looks like flames to me, so I guess I'm wondering when it started to look like that and why it hasn't done that up until now.

Seriously, I think they lost that big 8' x 24' Gator bucket — there was an abrupt torrent from left to right across the camera lens, the linkages went horizontal, then the whole thing just disappeared from view. Wow. They made a boo boo.

But, hell, I can understand how it can happen when your eyes and brain are a mile away from your hands... Looks like Viking Poseidon is now on standby, just hovering.

What we NEED is an intrepid team of scientists, engineers, biologists and military men who aren't afraid of going down there, into the unimaginable depths of the friggin ocean and working the wonders that must be worked. We can call it SeaView...



I love it.

Wow, that's sort've captivating. And what a submarine, eh?

It's an art form, isn't it?

Camera is changing angles but it looks like flames again on the Skandi.

Exactly. I'm not a genius, but supposedly the oil is coming from a ruptured tube right? Well why is it not oozing out? And what is with all of the flames? Someone please explain this.


OK Einstein, the pressure from the oil vented is reported to be thousands of PSI (pounds per square inch.) Does a ballon burst or does air ooze out?

Pretty sure the containment cap is painted yellow.

It just looks like flames.

How dare you call that movie mediocre!!! That is still one of my all time favorite flicks!

Does anyone know when this new cap is supposed to be attempted?
