Thank you for catching that video!
I took a photo earlier & saw that leak as well as
others all around the BOP. Wonder when they are
going to give us an update? Looks like the Static Kill
kicked over & Died!

aye with fraps, couldnt record, then when i think i was able to; couldnt upload. Gave up.
Nothing seems to be happening except the video thats just been posted anyway, for anyone who cant see just now the build-up us almost at the leak already, dont know what to expect when it reaches it.

skandi trying to clean it but looks too solid to shift any considerable amount

Definitely a leak of something on BOA 1...don't know what it is though.

From my understanding BP was going to introduce
Static Kill at a slow rate to make sure the well could
handle the pressure...obviously not since BOP is leaking worse
as well as more activity in the sea floor since they started
the push. Wonder how long they are going to ride it out & continue this never ending GAME!

If we have a higher volume & higher rate of leakage from the BOP plus an increase of leakage from the sea floor, I don't see any way of containment...if they sent the mud at a higher force & rate I would expect the BOP to blow as well as the sea floor...

Okay we have 19 cameras& 13 black outs...so only 6 feeds
available for view.
BOP not looking good...What are we seeing on Skandi ROV2?

Here is the leak from the pipe on the seafloor from BOA 1

CNN hasn't said anything on the Static Kill for some time now. I wonder what they think at CNN when they see the leaks on the feeds and have to report business as usual. I think they are at a stand still right now, probably why we are not getting more feeds.

Wondered where you went to...So we have pipe leakage, BOP
leakage & sea floor leakage? If this is the case they should not be forcing ANYTHING into BOP!

Where does the leaky pipe on the seafloor fit into the overall picture? As far as I knew the oil came out of the wellhead, into the BOP, and 3 ram stack cap. Nothing in that includes a pipe running along the seafloor. I have heard they wanted to pipe the oil from the well to shore when it went into production, but that pipeline would not have been connected, and not even constructed yet as far as I know. So what pipe are we seeing? (I did see the leak occuring - don't know yet if I caught it on video capture.)

Just wanted to say I also find this to be a very good question.

I guess i could just give you a star...

I did a quick markup of this image from BP to show mud flow and possible explanation of the pipe:



Edit: Just found out that only Q4000 is pumping mud.. so image only half right...

Thanks, that's similar to what the TV news has been showing, and I started to mention it, BUT...
There shouldn't be any oil and methane in that pipe, just mud. I figure the cutoff valve is at the BOP (one diagram showed the kill valve being used to pump the mud in). So, when they stop pumping mud they shut it off at the BOP so oil and methane couldn't fill that pipe even if it managed to get by the mud. Maybe it's just a tiny amount, but if so I wonder if it would be a continuous leak.

If the mud is holding, do they start pumping concrete (or cement) tonight?

Actually, from the looks of it, they might as well just go straight for the bottom kill via relief well.
