The surface is very stable then, more than I would expect. Depth is increasing... but over hours.

Considering they are measuring tenths of a foot, more fluctuation would seem consistant, no?

SPY66 you have been on this thread all day saying "Its resting on the concrete block" there is no concrete block down there. We watched it stop and just rest on the bottom, yet all day you have been saying NO LAVA etc etc.

I have to respectfully ask, what makes you sit here and try and convince everyone that the ROV is doing something we all know it is not, if you do not work for BP?


I work for BP as well. We have a contract with them doing well intervention on ULA. That is a stationary rig in the North sea just out side of Norway.

I know for a fact that this is a parking spot for the ROV. I also believe this ROV is a type Magnum.

I know this because i have seen this hundreds of times before, i know what it looks like. And i know what to look for to see it. The only thing i dont know is the reason why it is parked there at this time. There could be something they dont want us to see at the actual location, or they have decided that there is nothing important to see apart from what ROV1 is shoving at the moment. But since the ROV is still down there at this anker spot, i believe it is still going to be used for something later. If not they would of flown it and parked it in its cage.

You people are making a big deal out of nothing. I am sorry to say it.

EDIT: ROV2 might be a back up for ROV1 at the main leakage point. Or just on standby for other tasks or observation duties.


EDIT: At this time its not easy to the the square block of iron or cement which the rusted bar is attached to, but it was very clear last night when the ROV was on a heading of 287.6 degrees and a bit shallower.

That square block which the rusted bar is attached to is a pre installed anker for the ROVs.

I must admit that my survey experience is limited to land and shoreline projects. I do not know how great the fluctuations of deep ocean depth is with tides (if at all). I do know, however, that on shoreline data you have 3 figures... a sealevel mark (usually low tide line), ordinary high water mark (high tide), and a high water mark (based on historic and environmental data showing extreme floods and storm surges). These numbers can cary a great deal or be surprisingly similar.

I hear you, Here in Cook Inlet we get some of the biggest extremes in tide around. You clearly know more about the subject than I do, but it still seems fairly odd to me. I'll keep researching.

The ROV2 is now on the move. As i had predicted. It was just ankerd at a safe location.

wha the heck is going on down there!? Since I strated watching this morning they are both now showing scenes like something out of Dantes Peak.

If any one was just watching ROV2 just now at 11:55. It just landed at the same anker again. You could see the whole anker move at sea bed.

BP Ship Icelandic Lave to plug oil leak.

This is from June 2nd

British Petroleum have loaded a flotilla of ships with lava from the Icelandic volcano in the latest attempt to plug the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico; an operation that BP are calling Cup Pompeii.

It goes on to state the ship might have sunk , maybe ? because of the hot lava. intresting stuff. also has a video.

This could be BP doing just that. Plugging the oil leak with Lava.

So you guys are not seeing things.

Honestly, spend at least 10 seconds checking your source.

If the sites name didn't tip you off, at the bottom of the spoof it reads:

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.

LoL this is getting dumber and dumber by the hour. Well if people see lava at this location,anything is possible. I m out, this is not denying ignorance this is creating it.

You might want to scroll down all the way to the bottom of that page and read their disclaimer.

That area is Geologically stable. The whole concept of Magma is ludicrous. There are miles of Granite between that well and the Mohorovicic discontinuity and upper Mantle which is in a plastic state.

Does anyone here actually believe they would drill into a pool of Magma?


well, i wouldn't put it past them!
:shk:

but hopefully they would not.

the area, however, can't be that geologically stable - with the large amounts of two kinds of methane that leave behind cavities when released, combined with the effects from the Chicxulub impact on the formation and composition of the underlying rock....it ain't all that sturdy.

and the scientists knew it
so BP should have known it.

I agree.
This is getting stupid and annoying.

There is no lava or magma coming up!

As I stated in the other thread if there had been laval/magma their would be no cams to watch. Their wouldn't be any bop, bore, well, rovs or whatever is down there left.

Some of you are just so stupid, sorry.

My first thought was some kind of lens flare . might me more lens flare if the ROV has any red external lights on it of some kind. Some lenses will give purple or red glare if the conditions are right . looks sort of like a image, but its a refelection. I this happen alot even, on the best lenses.

This is utter nonsense!

How can you justify saying "ALERT" then following it with a question!?

That's like me saying "ALERT is your car on fire?" then asking you to go check.

If you aren't sure of something, don't post "ALERT." If everyone shouted "Hey I think I smell smoke! ALERT! Potential fire!" imagine how annoying that would be.

I really think this amounts to trolling for flags and stars.

Not that it matters to you OP, but I absolutely do not think that lava is coming from the sea floor! If it were, it would be so hot that the hydrogen and oxygen bonds would break, and you'd see lots of bubbles.

To me, this is purely an attempt at sensational thread making to get people worked up. And, seeing as lots of people love this kind of content, I think it's a shame that people take advantage of it.

There's plenty drama going on. We don't need bizarre speculation "ALERT"s to warn us of your far-fetched interpretations of some color in the images. Good grief!

During a survey of a length of pipe on the sea floor there appeared to glowing areas. Not saying it's lava but definetly areas of yellow, maybe paint ?

Just to make it clear, the whole damn rig and everything on it, is down there. At this depth, debris from the rig would be scattered all over the place.

I just saw some activity on Skandi ROV2. The ROV seemed to manipulate a fitting on the end a of a line which you can see it holding on to with its right manipulator in the below picture. There was a lot of white substance coming out of the fitting and after that it just allowed it to rest on the the sea floor while still holding on to it.
In the below image you can also see the rusty bar and concrete block that Spy66 was referring to earlier. The ROV's left manipulator is holding on to it.


Also, right now, the ROV is currently roving...
