Way to go, BP.
The oil is either old oil, say almost as old as the formation, or they have
drilled into a massive active fault zone that is reducing carbon dioxide to methane.
If it is high inhydrogen sulfide, it is reducing calcareous sediments to oil
and more natural gas in the presence of salt solutions.
Now they are providingmore saltwater, so via the Wurtz Synthesis more oil is going to be created than natural gas. The methane is going to be
converted to ethane, propane, butane, pentane and other long chain
organic compounds.You see if oil is being made now, at a very rapid rate
in this area, the pressure is never, ever going to drop off along the casing
and the oil is going to flow into the gulf forever.The only hope to reduce
the pressure will be by sinking more new wells into this area and try
and drain off the oil and gas as quickly as it is being made.
You see oil is basically inorganic. It is not made from dead squashed plankton.
It is not a fossil fuel. It is an inorganic chemical compound reduced from
calcareous sediments and carbon dioxide and methane gas. My peer reviewed published papers using chemical and thermodynamic equations show how this occurs.
The link to the papers is available below. Of course although I was published by The American Institute of Professional Geologists in 2009 and the Association of Environmentaland Engineering Geologists in 2008, it does not mean that my theories are accepted by the majority of geologists.
It will probably take 50 years, as with the theory of Continental Drift to
get accepted by geologists in general. Maybe this disaster will shave off 20 years.
Things evolve slowly in geology!
We can only hope it is old oil. We can only date oil back 100 000 years
by carbon dating, but that is fine. We need to know if this oil is 10 to 100
years old and if its age is changing as it escapes. Is the escaping oil
getting older or younger? So we need to start dating the oil on a weekly basis
to see what is happening.[...]

The LEAK ( stop calling it a spill !! ) is 50,000 miles BELOW the seabed.

I been having a good think about this.. the only reliable way is to compress the the rock around the well with explosives, to crush the fissures and pipe that the oil is escaping through.... we have 30,000ft or 10km of rock to play with before the oil deposit. A nuclear device will create an air bubble that will cause a tsunami, but a tsunami is better than no seafood for 30 years!
However a scalar device would be much better

Imo a nuclear device has only a small chance of success. The fact it was/is even being considered scares the living daylights out of me. Here is a link explaining much of the above statement. www.squidoo.com...

Very interesting indeed.
Oh my , I do think John Titor did say that yes !
(looking for a link now)
I agree with Maggie on this and have met a time traveler but this person only stayed to complete a mission that lasted only a week and was gone. They do not dress so much like us but fit in just the same. This person was from several hundred years in the future and they did not paint a pretty picture of what we have done to our planet. They work at night only and sleep in the day because it is so hot and have dark heavy coverings over the windows to keep out the harsh sun. The oceans look like black oil and are about that thick with all the polution in it and it is very hot and humid. The cars rise up and fly about 3 or 4 feet off the ground and are propelled by some other power but he said it was to complex for me to understand. I believed him and I ask him to come back someday and visit if he could and he said that was not possible. There is much violence in the future and we face a harsh world but from what the person said it is liveable.
