The Super Suck Solution - Why Did BP Reject It?

The Super Suck Solution



There's a potential solution to the Gulf oil spill that neither BP, nor the federal government, nor anyone — save a couple intuitive engineers — seems willing to try. As The Politics Blog reported on Tuesday in an interview with former Shell Oil president John Hofmeister, the untapped solution involves using empty supertankers to suck the spill off the surface, treat and discharge the contaminated water, and either salvage or destroy the slick.




It's infuriating that a viable solution was offered to BP in the beginning of this crisis and rejected in favor of pouring thousands of gallons of toxic chemicals into our oceans. We not only could have saved the Gulf, we could have saved the oil!

This is insanity!

That is against EPA rules. you can not discharge even .001 % of the oil back into the ocean even if it means you are getting 99.998 % of the oil out into a tanker.

and if its AGAINST EPA rules to bad the oil is washing up on the beaches but rules are rules and you can not break government rules.

Why did they?

Good question.
Almost like they're being setup to ruin an economy...
Almost like there's a plan for this leak.

I am willing to bet there is more to all this than meets the eye.

Bad thing of it is, we haven't even begun to see a fraction of the after-effects.
I smell something fishy.

Hello Benevolent Heretic!

I agree they should have tried this in the early stages of this mess. They have turned down Cameron's idea and Costner's. I don't understand why the delay's either and it only fuels the suspicion of something to be gained from letting this get as bad as it has. You would think cooperation would be at the forefront of the efforts, but I guess not.

I found this last night and posted it and it looks like the notion is getting some new attention and support thanks to Jindal and A. Cooper.

Looking at Skandi ROV 2 just now it looks as though a giant hoover has been placed over the cap. The escaping oil is being funneled up into a large circular pipe.

The same equipment is not visible on any other feed

They wouldn't have to put the contaminated water back into the ocean. Even if they did, the ocean would be a LOT cleaner than it is now.

I'm not sure if your flames are directed at me or something else... Not too clear.

Thanks for link, but I already have a similar one.

Just looking at it now it is still the same.

Look at Skandi ROV 2 and see the large red circular pipe hanging over the cap on top of the BOP.

Now look at Skandi ROV 1 and Enreprise ROV 2 and its supposed to be the same BOP and cap but there is no circular ring above it.

have we got 2 failed BOP's
or what ?

I am convinced I know why.

They are not concerned with such efforts because they know them to be exercises in futility.

We are not being told about the full nature of this crisis. They are not concerned with cleanup, because they haven't put out the 'fire' yet. The problem must be so big, little else must matter.

It would be like worrying about the white paint on your fence while the house was still burning...

Under these circumstances, the secrecy and lies from BP are completely understandable. The government's complicity, however, proves the point.

Be afraid. I fear we are experiencing the greatest event to have ever happened in our lives.

Hope that I am wrong! I'll be wishing the same.

I'm undecided on whether the government is complicit or just terribly impotent and incompetent. Or a little of each, but I am afraid. And I do not discount your last sentence. I hope you're wrong, too, but I have a sick void in my heart and stomach that tells me you're right.

Agreed.

Me too.

We are all in this together. Let's hope for the best.

My husband just told me that he heard on the news that this spill is equal to the Exxon Valdez every 8 days. And if that's being reported on the news (MSNBC, I think), you can be sure that the number is still conservative.
