Perhaps their overall view, including a detailed 3d view of the entire site, both above and below ground, and including data about possible anomalies,
structures, fractures, temperatures, surrounding hazards such as faults, volatile trapped methane hydrate deposits, canyon bank mud/seabed volatility,
etc.. has thrown in a few hazards they need to think about, for the relief wells also?
I once saw a documentary featuring what I think was a Scottish research/control facility where they (some big oil company) were developing amazing
technology giving remote operators control, and visualization in real-time, 3d, on massive wall-sized plasma screens, for 3d drilling capabilities. I
wonder whether they have such tech active at the Deepwater site? That along with their other satellite, seismic and other survey data must make our
scanning of ROV feeds seem like crumbs of info in comparison?
