Someone on here posed a couple of questions which I passed on to Richard Hoagland. He answered today...here are the comments I made followed by the
response from Richard and some comments by 2 other posters
Victoria Zasikowski RICHARD , someone posted a pertinent query on a forum, please answer :
I don't understand something. RCH's whole theory is based upon a massive build-up of gas. This requires an obstruction, defined as an inlet with no
outlet. Thus creating a bubble.
But that's simply not what we have here. There's a pipeline going 24,......000 feet into the ... See Moreground. That is effectively a pressure
release from all potential bubbles. How could RCH's hypothetical gas bubble form in the first place with the primary line being open-ended? There
would be no chance for pressure to build up sufficiently, I would think
Victoria Zasikowski Also someone else said :
The formation above the resivoir won't be EXPLODING IN A HUGE CATASTROPHIC BOOM either. If it were that the gas is migrating further up the
formation, it will reach a level and seep out into the gulf. It isn't able to form in an elastic formation like a balloon.
Richard C. Hoagland Then, how is this individual explaining the ~15 to 20-foot observed RISE in the floor of ther Gulf, for HUNDREDS of square
miles around the Deepwater Horizons well?
SOMETHING is pushing the floor of the Gulf upward .. which is why I called for an immediate network of buoys to be placed in the Gulf, by NOAA, the
USGS or the US Navy, to report on the rate of this continued "bulge" ....
This is deadly serious.
Vincent Cataldi Richard :
- what is the rate of change of this rise you speak of,
- and when did it start?
... See More
- please define "mud dog data!"
Richard C. Hoagland It's risen ~15 to 20 feet, over a several hundred square mile area, since Deepwater Horizons sank, April 22.
"Mud dog data" (or "mud LOG" data) is simply the vertical drilling record of ALL the geology the drill went down through, in drilling the well.
There are literally thousands of wells in the Gulf, so if all that actual DATA were released, we... See More all could have -- via the analysis of
independent geologists -- a MUCH better idea of just how fragile the bottom of the Gulf REALLY is ... and if there, indeed, could be a catastrophic
explosion and tidal wave if this goes on ....
So, that "mud log" data is CRITICAL.
And, it is currently proprietary to EACH PRIVATE COMPANY.
THAT has to change ... ASAP.
E-mail to Obama and Ed Markey (the congressman who got the BP "spill cam" video posted) can get it instantly released.
Roo Reindeer It may well form an elastic formation like a balloon.
Rocks can do that.
Just like a volcano.
It depends on the nature of the rock.
Thats why RCH says we need the drilling data. ... See More
To analyse the geological structure.
For analogy assume a tire (or steel tank, or ceramic, or rock for that matter) is connected to a pump. Air leaks out, but if the pump puts new air in
faster then the leak lets it out, the pressure continues to rise until it reaches nearly the pump pressure or it pops....
High pressure metal tanks can also rupture once a small leak begins. Whereas they are strong enough to hold indefinitely if not punctured. ...
Even though the broken well is a pressure reliever, if the flow into the porous rock close to the surface from the deeper well opening exceeds the
rate at which it outflows from the seabed leaks the pressure will still continue to rise in that volume. Which will push up the seafloor.
Whether it bursts or farts depends on the pressure and the nature of the rock.
1)Very weak rock: contiues to leak all over the place, but won't "blow".
Like a tire which leaks like a sieve.
2)Very strong rock:pressure reaches eqilibrium with deep well pressure and the flow stops. Assuming well can be plugged at the surface.
Like a thick tire that can take full pump pressure even after plugging.
3)Medium rock:deep leak continues, pressure continues to build because outleak rate thru top is lower then inleak rate through bottom. If pressure
reaches breaking point of rock, it blows.
Like a typical tire, 35psi rating, with small leak, connected to 200 psi pump.
We know the rock isn't "strong" because it is leaking out all over. Better hope it is weak
So ATS, Richard is claiming the sea floor itself has RISEN by 15-20 feet...? Going to see if I can find any whispers of this elswhere but I won't
hold my breath. I know some people think he's talking BS but if you take the time to read through his stuff on FB he really does sound like he
believes what he is saying . I listened to his coast to coast interview and there was no sense of him acting or talking crap, he was very worried and
intense about it all.
