There the same. skandi rov1 is showing the left side rov2 is showing the right and enterprise 2 is showing the front or rear. It seems to be tipped at an angle where one side is leaking and the other isn't.

do you think the fin looks bent in skandi rov 1? or is that what its supposed to look like? I can now see how each of the rov's are positioned around the bop and it makes sense. wierd. makes sense...

The fin is most likely bent but I don't think any damage was done.

On Skandi Rov 1 the fin does look bent and everything is very much at an angle, oil seeping out the side. Almost looks like it could topple over if that one fin wasn't stuck. Did anyone see anything happen that could have caused this?

I just came here to ask the same thing about the neon green glowing stuff - at first I thought it was little flags but discovered it was kinda smoky.

do you think it really wasn't glowing green and was an illusion? and what on earth is that thing they are moving in over the bop anyways?

The green stuff is hydraulic oil. I think they add a tracer colour in it so as you can see if it is leaking. I saw a heap leak from a hot-stab on OI3-ROV2 the other day.

ok I saw them put this big thing over the bop. It was leaking on one side kind of slow. Now its raging. What was the purpose of that "cap"?? and the pressure is really roaring now.

the purpose of the cap is to 'capture' and divert a portion of the oil into a containment ship (?)

maybe.. now they are trying to weld the leaking side.... ? so what about the pressure that is going to be sent up that attached cap or whatever that is on the bop.

1. New Containment Cap -- The third such containment cap to be installed on the busted blowout preventer since BP attempted its Lower Marine Riser Package (LMRP) system at the beginning of June, the new device is said to fit tighter over the sheared pipe, allowing less oil to escape. There's a big caveat though, as first the old (second) cap will have to be removed, which will temporarily allow the full force of the oil flow back into the Gulf for at least three days. The Gulf response team has a plan for compensating for that (see below), and once the cap is in place, it should "function as a valve that can help shut in the runaway well," reports Oil & Gas Journal.

on skandi 1, is that something leaking from the ocean floor or is there a pipe laying on the ocean floor that is leaking what appears to be a white colored something?

Skandi 1 appears to be on 'disperant ops' and the pipe we often see spewing white stuff into the oil plume is corexitt, i believe.

\\correct me if im wrong.

(Hey, thanks to whoever made 'dispersant' recognizable to the spell check)

I was wondering about that green glow, thanks for your post, can this be confirmed?

Hydraulic oil with tracers in it?
