I suppose if they have changed their mind and want to hang around to pump that thing dry, they'll have to make sure that the bottom kill fails. As I
understand it, those relief wells aren't meant for production. Of course, that's an awful lot of money to spend on those relief wells if it's all
for show and tell.
Maybe they are pretending to drill those relief wells. Maybe they are drilling two more production wells instead with the intent to tell us later
that the bottom kill failed. I think that was their original intent to begin with had this first well not blown out.
They would have needed to drill more wells to get production really ramped up. They would need to increase output if oil from the middle east were to
be disrupted due to conflict breaking out. They were trying to rush that original well along as quickly as they could and have it proven before any
move against Iran could be taken. They had a deadline. When that well blew, I bet that postponed any plans concerning Iran, ha.
Those ROVs look pretty busy this evening. Looks like they are still trying to meet some upcoming deadline from the looks of things this evening.
They look busy.
