I have done nothing but think about this horrendous oil leak..........
A very interesting email - Was a little concerned with the below :
"also something happening about 100 miles southeast of the rig site with several navy and uscg ships. And Friday two serious looking guys arrive and started directing our sup. Apparently they showed Navy Intelligence ID when they arrived along with a dozen commando looking guys".
What on earth could this be about???

According the page I linked to, they now have such accurate EM technology that missing the bore is not a significant problem, and they have newer fluids that are capable of "cementing" even the highest pressure wells. They used the example of a 17.5" pipe that was sealed with a new polymer fluid and guar resin.
I tend to agree with the OP email, that not only will they begin cementing the blow out, but they will also begin producing the reservoir. I think they can make the case that it is necessary to relieve the pressure from the reservoir to ensure now underground blowouts/fissures and to be sure that their kill procedure stays in place. It wouldn't surprise me if taxpayers didn't end up subsidizing their production of the reservoir!
Okay this covers a bigger area and the total amount of oil is now larger, but the concentration in any one place will likely be no different to, say, the Torre Canyon, Exxon Valdez, Sea Empress, Braer ...... none of which resulted in any evacuations whatsoever.
