Finally seeing a paned view of the pipe and oil flow, i see a pipe no cap and oil flowing freely from the pipe itself, this is on Skandi Rov2. Anyone
else seeing this, i repeat i see no cap!! My eyes may be wrong, if so i apologies for causing alarm.
Hang on i think i see the cap now, i thought it was a part of the rov.
That first picture you posted is the same gauge I took a pic of. It says "OUTPUT" right above it. I noticed it dropping after the same ROV turned a
valve just below that gauge. Cross your fingers folks, this could be bad.
Yea the first one sure looks sulphur based - or they have put so much dispersant down there earlier or on the other side (out of view) it gives it
that color. If sulphur, what would cause that - where would that be coming from?
If all is well with the well bore then yes the pressure should rise, they will monitor this in 6 hour increments to ensure all is well. If the
pressure drops is is low 3000PSI> then this will indicate that its escaping else where and they will have to assess this before they can more
Personally I think they are going to encounter problems when they shut the whole thing down, hope they don't but my gut feeling says this is going to
get worse before it gets better.
I am a little confused with some of this. So, the pressure right now should be 5,000 Psi higher than it is? I don't really know what I'm looking at
as far as what the ROV's are doing, but the pressure is much lower than expected right now, is that right?
The pressures shown on the dials are not for the well, they are for the hydraulics being used down there. The well readings will be wired up to the
ships. I don't think its something we will see first hand.
We wont know the pressures just yet as they haven't closed anything off, only then will we know if its high or low.
It seems like there's something that occasionally engulfs one of the oceaneering cams. Strange. I watched those cams for awhile last night and
didn't notice anything like that. If that cam is not above the oil leak, where is it coming from? Now, they just shut that ROV camera off. Something
is going on down there perhaps?
