Multiple oil rig leaks now threaten entire Gulf


www.helium.com

New evidence confirms multiple oil leaks possibly coming from other rigs and the presence of cracking fissures that are gradually splitting open the ocean floor allowing more oil to contaminate the Gulf waters.

Thought this was importiant to add as well:


Sources have discovered that the Diamond Offshore drilling rig, Ocean Saratoga, is also leaking oil into the Gulf. Speculation abounds that perhaps it is the Ocean Saratoga's oil that was discovered on beaches early on during the mounting disaster. That oil sludge did not match the light crude oil that the Deepwater breach was pouring into the water. The oil—a much heavier crude—kept experts puzzled until now.

It has come to light that Diamond's rig has been leaking oil since April 30, according to federal documents just released to the public.

Satellites monitoring the Deepwater oil slick have also picked up the Ocean Saratoga slick that now is extending out about 10 miles across the Gulf.

Federal officials, mostly ineffective during the first 50 days of the ongoing BP catastrophe, now admit that the Diamond oil slick is also most likely washing up onto Louisiana's shoreline threatening more coastal life.


With all of this oil leaking, and hurricane season here, someone on the Gulf Coast will get a storm and an evacuation order.

This article fails to mention the split in the casing approx 1000' below the sea bed. I was watching the ROV feeds before they cut the riser and you could see oil seeping up from the sea floor. One time I was watching it and they either cut or lost the sat feed.

My sincere hope is that people along the Gulf Coast who have family elsewhere in the world will move now to leave the region and relocate before the troops with guns require an evacuation to camps previously planned for just such a disaster...

I pray that my estimation of what is happening to the floor of the Gulf of Mexico is wrong. If I am right, then most of the USA will be facing massive evacuations and the creation of a diaspora of biblical proportion.

This is crazy! What's going on there?

Is this because of instability in the oil fields, because of the blowout?

Or is someone making this happen?

some one big needs to look into this.
do they all leak?
no one can see what they do on the rigs.
if some one came to look they just switch it off?
planet earth has No futre...

? they could have built a big cave to stay in for years.
wipe out life. then start over.
they wont to get rid of what they see as the useless people.
start a new world. with them as gods!
just my thoughts.

Second Spill Not a Major Leak, Energy Company
(June 08, 2010)


Pictures taken by an aerial photographer over the weekend and posted on the Internet suggested that oil was leaking from the drilling rig Ocean Saratoga, owned by Diamond Offshore Inc., and that a nearby vessel with a hose overboard was applying dispersant.

But Taylor said the work boat was conducting scheduled drainage of the subsea containment system. The site has three containment domes below the surface, the company said.

Think about this:

20,000 - 40,000 Barrels per day leaking in the GOM.

Millions of cubic feet of natural gas.

It's coming out far faster then it does during production.

Now add to that the weight of a mile of water and 18,000' of sediment and rock.

There will be a void created and the sea floor will eventually collaspe in to fill the gap.

The louisana coast has been sinking for the past 50 years due to oil production. Its just sinking as a slow pace.

Now the seafloor could collapse and cause a localized tsunami in the GOM. That's a scary thought.

Look at all the sinkholes being reported world wide. Imagine one in the gulf opening up and Oil gushing out.

It could happen.

It's three days old but here's the latest press release from Diamond Offshore Inc's website....they seem to be denying anything is wrong and that the claims of a leak are wrong...


HOUSTON, Jun 08, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) --Diamond Offshore Drilling, Inc. (NYSE
O) today confirmed that there have been no leaks of hydrocarbons from the semisubmersible drilling rig Ocean Saratoga.

The rig is under contract to Taylor Energy Company LLC and engaged in the process of plugging and abandoning wells damaged when a Taylor Energy production platform was toppled during Hurricane Ivan in 2004.

Source: Diamond Offshore Confirms No Leaks of Oil from Ocean Saratoga Drilling Rig


Here they talk about the incorrect report of an oil leak...



Unidentified aircraft took photos this weekend that incorrectly reported an oil leak coming from the drilling rig Ocean Saratoga. At the time of these photos, Taylor Energy was actually conducting marine operations on site with a 180 foot dynamically positioned workboat for regularly scheduled subsea containment system drainage.

The tanks mistakenly characterized as containing dispersants on the boat's deck, were actually tanks to store and transport the collected oil as it was pumped from the underwater storage system.


Theres a lot of info here that i'm sure our members can pick apart, just as soon as you break it into paragraphs....it's a bit of an eye-numbing read.

i would be concentrating more on stopping the key unlocking the Abyss.?
Revelations.
Ive stated before on other threads that i think the whole gulf may collapse in on itself. SOON.

"The Gulf Of Mexico has a rip line from the New Madrid fault line that follows the Mississippi River. On September 10, 2006 a rare earth quake in the Gulf of Mexico brought this diagonal rip to the attention of the USGS who did not know it existed."


www.disclose.tv...


hmm. just a thought here but could the rig leaks be caused by a movement in the plates? not an earthquake just a movement that happened slow and possibly cracking open the pipes and the ocean floor where drilling has been done. possibly a weak ocean floor and the theory that this oil bed is bigger than Saudis?

im so pissed off about this. if i didnt think i would get arrested for helping id go down there and use a coffee cup to scoop oil out of the ocean.

Some things I have posted and observed since this began

www.abovetopsecret.com...

www.abovetopsecret.com...

this last is from a religious extremist but has some sound theory despite perhaps some over estimated numbers

www.abovetopsecret.com...

It is my belief the majority of the floor of the GOM has become severely unstable and has begun leaking from multiple sites. Additionally the vast amount of methane being released is a real hazard to planes and ships in the area due to loss of buoyancy and fire danger. I also believe the Deepwater well has blown out the casing and is a freeflowing gusher that fractured the strata when the supercritical natural gas explosively expanded blowing the rig. The fractured strata is allowing gas and oil to leak from cracks in the seafloor in addition to the destroyed well.
I have been labled "doom and gloom" for having predicted this revelation a couple weeks ago.

i totally agree with your theory. its perfect and plausible.

nahh its not doom and gloom. just fact, people don't want to hear how things really are just how they want the truth to be. but the cold hard facts are reality blows.

and as i was thinking about the gas expansion and thought that maybe nuking the well might just cause enough deterioration to open the well like the grand canyon. there would be no way to stop the oil then.

Diamond Offshore confirmed that there have been no leaks of hydrocarbons from the semisubmersible drilling rig Ocean Saratoga. The rig is under contract to Taylor Energy Company and engaged in the process of plugging and abandoning wells damaged when a Taylor Energy production platform was toppled during Hurricane Ivan in 2004.

As previously announced by Taylor Energy, Taylor is continuing its ongoing well intervention program, using the Diamond Ocean Saratoga, with full approval from Unified Command. The well intervention program at Mississippi Canyon Block 20 is the result of the destruction of a production platform caused by a mudslide triggered by Hurricane Ivan. The platform was toppled by a subsurface mud slide triggered by storm surges with 100 foot waves.

As reported by Taylor Energy, the wells were covered by more than 100 feet of mud and sediment and only four wells were capable of production without pressure assistance. The associated surface sheen was minimal and never made landfall. As a result of deploying three subsurface containment domes and performing six successful well interventions, the initial average observed sheen volume of nine gallons per day has been substantially reduced.

Unidentified aircraft took photos this weekend that incorrectly reported an oil leak coming from the drilling rig Ocean Saratoga. At the time of these photos, Taylor Energy was actually conducting marine operations on site with a 180 foot dynamically positioned workboat for regularly scheduled subsea containment system drainage. The tanks mistakenly characterized as containing dispersants on the boat's deck, were actually tanks to store and transport the collected oil as it was pumped from the underwater storage system.

"The effort is continuing as directed by the Unified Command," said Will Pecue, President of Taylor Energy. "We have been working consistently and successfully with MMS and the U.S. Coast Guard to address the resulting environmental impacts of one of the ten most intense hurricanes ever recorded by the National Weather Service."

I believe this is a natural earth cycle, for there to be volcanic eruptions there must be an increase in pressure to force LAVA out of the earth.

**IF** there is increasing volcanic activity nearby THEN there are increasing pressures down below, so there should be no surprise. Perhaps TPTB did not intentionally create this mess, but had a evidence this might happen and had the well been controllable, perhaps the pressure could have been released before catastrophic seabed rupture occurred.

Oil eruptions are implicated in the Permian extinction event.
