Gulf Oil Spill 'Could Go Years' If Not Dealt With


www.sott.net

According to Kutcherov, a leading specialist in the theory of abiogenic deep origin of petroleum, "What BP drilled into was what we call a 'migration channel,' a deep fault on which hydrocarbons generated in the depth of our planet migrate to the crust and are accumulated in rocks, something like Ghawar in Saudi Arabia."3 Ghawar, the world's most prolific oilfield has been producing millions of barrels daily for almost 70 years with no end in sight. According to the abiotic science, Ghawar like
like all elephant and giant oil and gas deposits all over the world, is located on a migratio

If the whole painting the coast black from a hurricane isnt enough. Along comes a Russian scientist who says ,that this seems to say it looks as though maybe BP got into the Tiber field, which is a migration channel.

He goes on to say that one has been tapped into in Saudi Arabia and that it has been producing a million barrels of oil a day for over 70 years. This indeed would be a mega disaster. Quite possibly ruining the whole worlds oceans, if this man is close to correct. This would definitely put a nuke back on the table, but probably unsuccessfully.

Man I hope most of these scientists and oil experts are wrong. BP could have just brought man's worst nightmares to life. And they are worried about their corporation.

From all scientists and experts on this spill, at least what information that I can find, it seems to me that there is a HUGE cover-up going on between BP and the government. We all know they have been togethor in their lies and I hope my feelings are way wrong and just from an overdose of coverage that I have been reading and seeing. But there seems to be A WHOLE LOT MORE going on with this spill than what is being told.

Even the media has helped in keeping some things under wraps, at least until TPTB, want them revealed on this matter. It is starting to seem also, that almost everyday the media is coming out with new, shocking, disturbing facts about what is going on with this spill. Almost they are trying to ease the public into the truth.

Hope I am paranoid.

NEW GULF LEAK ESTIMATE. IS STAGGERING!




Early in the crisis, BP and the federal government repeatedly said that the Deepwater Horizon well was spewing about 5,000 barrels (210,000 gallons) a day into the gulf. But the new estimates, released Thursday by government-appointed scientists, show that the well most likely produces 5,000 barrels before breakfast.


This seems to back the claims of the russian scientist that they have hit a major oil vein that they cannot contain and did not expect.




A team led by scientists from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution has studied the leak with instruments normally used in research on deep-sea hydrothermal vents. Its initial estimate puts the flow at 25,000 to 50,000 barrels a day, said U.S. Geological Survey Director Marcia McNutt, who leads the teams of scientists collectively known as the Flow Rate Technical Group.

70 years of oil spewing out in Saudi yet who of us have heard of it causing some world wide disaster ? I just don't understand why there's this intense fear about the one that might have been tapped in the gulf when after 70 years we don't seem to hear anything about this one in Saudi ? I'm not disputing there is something to get freaked out about but I AM trying o understand what's worse about the gulf one compared to the decades old one in Saudi. I hope someone can explain, thanks

I don't see it going on for years.

Sure unchecked it would go on until the well was dry or until the pressure was alleviated to a point where it wasn't spewing.

I do honestly believe the leak will not be stopped by christmas, I do hope I'm wrong but based on other leaks I'm not keeping my hopes up.

People have came out with various theories as to why the relief wells that are being drilled won't work. I think they will work, but I think its going to take longer than they are saying to get it under control.

I think they are using the Saudi Arabian well for example. Showing the amount of oil that could possible be waiting to spew out.

The vast difference between the two being the SA well is controlled and producing oil, the one in the Gulf is uncontrolled and is producing one of the largest disasters we've seen.

The Saud's are pumping and recovering the oil off the Ghawar field. It is a mostly land based operation with dozens of producing pumps and a collection pipeline. The Deepwater is a mile underwater and is not being contained or controlled.

Huge, huge, huge difference between recovered/collected oil and unrecovered oil going hilly-nilly.

Isnt this cap BP put on the oil pipe, supposed to be temporary? I mean, thier supposedly working on a permanent solution to cap it, right?

Nor do I. I don't see BP stopping it either, though.


If the reports of oil spewing from the floor of the ocean itself along with the reports of other platforms in the area experiencing leaks around them are true, we're headed for a flash point incident in which the shelf colapses and the entirety of the deposit releases into the Gulf.

...which just gave me an idea for a thread.

Thats not uncommon, and I think the number I saw was 65 billion gallons annually into the ocean from natural seeps. Could have been million.

the one in saudi was above ground and was able to be gathered. the same thing has basically happened with russian wells also, but the difference is none of them is 5000ft deep in the water. also what i have read and heard so far, is none of the other wells had the pressure that this one is possibly blowing. i think we need bp and the government to come clean and say exactly what kind of pressure they are dealing with here.

i hear they usually test for pressure and release their findings before and after tapping it, but so far it seems there is a total blackout as to how much pressure this well contains and is demonstrating.

all someone has to do is google this:
how much psi does a volcanoe contain

it keeps coming to oil volcanoe and the pressure being to much to contain, and even alot of the site seem to not work when clicked on. either deleted or re-directed.(at least on my computer)

i am telling everyone that i think this is the real reason this thing blew the rig and why they cant do anything about it. even if it was above ground and it was blowing the kind of pressure they are talking they still couldnt stop it. nothing short of an explosion to seal it.

prove me wrong please.

what else has man captured that has around 40,000 to 70,000psi.
what pressure does a volcanoe exhibit?

i have worked around high pressure and cannot fathom these extremes.

even if the actual leak doesn't go on for years,
the cleanup operations, the ramifications and damage done from all the oil and gas spilled before stopage occurs, will be an ongoing event lasting for many years, if not decades.

yes it is very, very sad.

i am afraid when they drilled into the Tiber field a month before the maconda they compromised the integrity of the Tiber and now they are one an the same. very bad and terrible.

that would be billions of barrels of oil, and they are only 1500ft from each other.

btw, love your avatar.
