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.

They have just attached a new take off pipe to the well Cap.

As the pipe connector was attached (took them quite a while to get to this stage as it looked very turbulant down there:



Where it fits in the scheme of things, notice the ROV in the top left corner holding the yellow bracket.



Not sure what this does, I am assuming is for taking oil/gas from the cap itself.

The flow has changed from this morning and if I am nt mistaken it looks more 'Sulphur' based - perhaps!!


Taken Just now..



And this morning:

Not sure what's happening but this flow seems to change daily now

The plume seems to have changed color again to a rusty red, not parts of it, the whole plume, so i don't think its the corexit, any ideas on the color change?

EDIT: Sorry this was just mentioned in Star's last thread, we must have been uploading at around the same time.

Hello everyone, Professor is back. I heard the good admiral say they was looking for pressure in the 8,000-9,000 range. Seems the integrity test is showing somewhat lower than expected pressure.

Thats what i was thinking a member called HrdCorHillbilly put a picture like that in my thread and that pressure is low


Thanks for putting the pictures up.


Thankyou

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.

Not just yet wait till they close the one that's spewing oil first then see what the pressure is after that.

But thank's fof putting that picture in my thread.

Thankyou

Hey guys, Its my first post. I have been here for a long time though lurking lol. Has the Skandi 1 Rov feed frozen for any of you?

The live feed for it has frozen for me but all the other feeds are still smooth.

NVM, Is working now but laggy.

They do freeze from time to time - give it a while and check back.

And after they close the one that is sprewing the pressure should go up, otherwise it would indicate a leak elsewhere, right?

Sorry for the question, its just that I feel with all the new info my brain is on overload lately. Reminds me of cramming for final exams!

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 forward.

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.

Significant deposits of elemental sulphur also exist in salt domes along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, although I have always associated sulphur with volcanic activity.

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.

Got it.

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?
