Pretty sure the containment cap is painted yellow.
It just looks like flames.

I noticed that a couple of days ago and I thought it looked like flames but it was much smaller.
This oil spill is startingto scare me. I live very closs to it. If that really is fire, then we better be prepared for anything. Fire mixed with methane gas spells disaster so great that it can't even be described.

My husband's coworker said it is methanol that they're injecting down there in order to keep it from forming ice crystals under the cap.

Seeing the leak is gushing out at something like 10,000 pressure-pounds per square inch, it's safe to assume, nothing will be able to 'clog' it at this rate, right?
So my question is this: Why can't they re-bury it? I mean.....submerge this leaking pipe back into the Earth?
