The cap definitely is NOT still "in place".

Take a look at the feeds before you post. I do, however agree with you that this place tends to be a bit Pollyana-ish, but that's another subject...

It occurs to me that the reason the ROV hit the Top Hat is too much methane in the water around the wellhead..

If the methane concentrations are as high as I suspect, it would cause bouyancy difficulties and that would severly effect the controllability of the ROVs.

This doesn't bode well for anything.

This thing looks crazy. Did it look like this before they put on the Hat? Like lots of sections broken off? I know the pipe was cut off...

I haven't trusted my eyes on the fire because I was wrong a few times thinking there was fire.

OK it was dispersant. I saw the ROV back away with it still coming out.

I guess I can't trust my eyes on any of this - except flow rate maybe.

Seriously, it doesn't look like something molten creeping down the bottom right side on Rov2? Really??

okay i just looked again, and im am very sorry to say. personally i dont believe we will be seeing the top of the bop in the morning. it seems to be just eating away at it. i am surprised the pressure against the cap of the bop hasnt blown the thing right of the pipe yet. looking worse by the minute sorry to say.

So, what your post is telling me is that you are responding to the title, not to the content of the 11 page thread. Right? If you had actually READ the entire thread, you would know that you had no need to behave that way.

Listen.. just because BP's media arm says "oh our rov bumped the top hat so we took it off to be safe" doesn't mean its true.

Do you really think an ROV of that size could cause significant damage to an object that has been sustaining the sort of PSI it has been for weeks? That little sucker would have had to been moving pretty fast to smack it with that much force.

I don't believe anything BP says.

And if they are dumping dispersant into the flow right now....why?

sheesh this place over sensationalizes things more than the damn media does.

it didn't BLOW OFF

it had a rupture quite a different thing the cap is still in place it didn't blow off or explode, a rover ran into it and knocked a hole in the cap.

damn most the subjects on this are worse than fox and cnn combined..

stop sensationalizing everything, I swear if the president mentioned he was constipated there would be people panicking on ATS with BOLD and sensationalistic subjects threads that it was a sign!

take a xanax or hell a rohypnol and chill


No one is sensationalizing anything, look at the live cam, they removed the cap I saw them do it lol. Either way the spill rediclous right now, it doesnt matter if people get name of the equipment right, we can see there is a huge problem. And xan makes you completely retarded, screw benzos.

That orange spot on the pipe IS getting bigger.
Sure looks like it is melting. They just pulled away the ROV. looks like the "fog" stuff was being sprayed from it.

The pipe is dissolving or melting. watch that lower right piece will be gone shortly.
This ain't good.

I think it is just a bit of sludge/stuff. I had to check again to make sure it hadn't moved, but it is stationary. Like it was dropped or blown out.

could it be all the methane hydrates coming to the top and thawing out? just a thought. the methane hydrates expand 64x when they thaw. not very good and im not looking at it right now just going off what you are describing. i am actually a little scared to look. but here goes.


It might be the no-ip address? I was able to post the following on FB which shows the same thing.

That red hot area is growing, something is melting or at least getting super hot down there. I've been taking screen shots all day. It's definitely growing. I think another section of that pipe is about to melt off......

Again, I say to read the entire thread and THEN make any comments you like. You are making YOURSELF look foolish, not the thread and the people posting on it.
