BP Has Blown - Out Well In Sights
BP announced today a giant oil discovery at its Tiber Prospect in the deepwater US Gulf of Mexico. The well, located in Keathley Canyon block 102, approximately 250 miles (400 kilometres) south east of Houston, is in 4,132 feet (1,259 metres) of water. The Tiber well was drilled to a total depth of approximately 35,055 feet (10,685 metres) making it one of the deepest wells ever drilled by the oil and gas industry. BP's Website
At the time of the explosion, the Deepwater Horizon was drilling an exploratory well at a water depth of approximately 5,000 feet (1,500 m) in the Macondo Prospect located ... WikiPedia
BP Spuds Second Relief Well on Macondo
Type: Drilling Operations
May. 2010 - BP spudded a second relief well on the Macondo site to intercept and isolate the wellbore. The GSF Development Driller II semisub initiated the relief well on Sunday, about two weeks after the GSF Development Driller III spudded the first relief well. BP is drilling the wells to intercept the original wellbore above the oil reservoir at approximately 16,000 feet (4,877 meters). Once the wells reach their intended target, the plan is to pump heavy fluid into the well to stop the flow of oil from the reservoir. Next, cement will be pumped down to permanently seal the well. BP estimates it will take approximately three months to complete each well. The Macondo prospect is located on Mississippi Canyon Block 252 in the Gulf of Mexico in a water depth of 4,993 feet (1,522 meters). BP serves as the operator, holding a 65% interest in the prospect; Anadarko holds 25%; and MOEX 2007 holds the remaining 10%.
BP Spuds Relief Well on Macondo Site
Type: Drilling Operations
May. 2010 - BP began drilling a relief well to intercept and isolate the oil from the Macondo site. The drillship, GSF Development Driller II, is drilling this relief well. BP plans for the new well to intercept the existing, leaking well at a depth of roughly 13,000 feet (3,962 meters) below the seabed and permanently seal it. The new drill site is located about 1.5 miles (2 kilometers) from the leaking well on Mississippi Canyon Block 252, and drilling should take about three months.

Keep in mind it's a tedious process with the echo location so it may still take a few weeks, hopefully not. BP did something right and had the best people on these RW's.......
But as I stated earlier once this well is killed it really will not change the silly consumption habits America has become accustomed with. The damage would have to be severe it will be business as usual, same agency MMS, same corrupt pay-offs, SUV's will continue rolling out of the factories, and in two weeks the message will be forgotten. Six months later "drill baby drill" all over again and the next disaster will be project Liberty.
