Ektar, that's the same BOP Q4000 was at days or a week or so ago when there was what I said looked like a hydraulic leak, and someone (you?) said no
it was oil. There is a different ROV down at the seafloor shining it's light on the vent pipes coming from wellhead pipe. I have or had some
earlier pictures of the same thing - sure I still have one or two. It's also the same place where it was spraying the white/green stuff that me and
Eyes Stitched Closed saw - still got those pics.
Dragonfire, the funny looking little thing on the seafloor looks like a hinged lid like the ones on oil tanks.
-- Seafloor is leaking, too much to be normal, everyday occurence; and violent volcanic like eruptions at times - on a small scale though nothing like
a Mt. St. Helens
-- No proof of looping, but I noticed the discoloration long ago from either light or camera filter. I've been refiltering it on stills just to get
a better view but not saving and uploading the reworked image because I would be accused of manipulating it to get what I want. Blue is used in the
water column to disguise the turbidity - blue diffuses more easily than other colors and doesn't penetrate as deep (same reason sky is blue). Green
is used at the seafloor to disguise oil seeps and gas that forms a haze or fog over the seafloor surface.
-- I followed one ROV to the surface this morning (even got a shot of the moon pool from underneath) and the water was very turbid 200 ft below the
surface - lots of those white balls we always see, some even right below the ship. So they could easily be sampled from the surface if someone would
