Now.. both @ around 1000ft.. I hope they do something when they get down there and not just sit.

I was reading up on the thread (first one linked below) when westcoast posted on it.
She added a link (second one below) that is very interesting imo.
I hope others can take some time to read this.

The MOHO; Has BP drilled into it?

I would love to hear more opinions on this theory!


Thank you

That was bad reporting.. I watched the speech and what he meant was that they would have to open the cap and collect the oil at the surface. That is MSM for ya!

Why do they have to wait so long for the pressure readings. Oil is a fluid the pressure should equalize fairly quick. Your brakes on your car run on hydrolic fluid. Its not like you push the brake pedal and then wait for it to stop in a little while. This is a straight pipe there isn't any chamber or resevoir to fill like in your brakes.

The only way it would keep rising would be if the oil where filling a void. This would mean the casing is ruptured. As the void filled the pressure would go up. The void would be created by a gas. Methane H2S or something. Being a gas it is a compressable material.


Over 40% of the volume being expelled is Methane Gas. This completely changes the rules completely as you mentioned. Pressures then become the victim of thousands of variables.

Not that the casing is ruptured necessarily.

Uhm.. must be meters or the Boa Deep C ROV1 is working on one of the floating risers??

That is meters. 1480 meters = 4,855 feet. Some ROVs display meters. others display feet. Don't know why though.

Hello, that took me to another thread. I was hoping others could take a look at this thread created by westcoast.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

I find the information she posted very interesting, she might be onto something.

Thanks

edit to add, yes, thats the MSM for you

I wonder what they are waiting for?? They both have stopped at 1400 ft or m.....

Does not look like the BOA DEEP C 2 has its lights on...again. Why bother sending it down if even BP cannot see anything>?

Thanks.. that is a good read/theory.. I just don't know if the well is deep enough to reach the moho.. but maybe there are areas where the crust is very thin in the Gulf.. can't rule it out.

Here is a gauge from Olympic Challenger...was at 4,000 PSI...not sure what gauge it is for though

That one is a hydraulic gauge on the ROV.

The Olympic R1 is in the water again and on its way down! .. but heading says, "Test Dive".. so maybe not go all the way?

BP is only reporting on the pressure # they are getting.


Morpheas Great Gulf site I didnt see it untill it was mentioned a bit earlier

Thanks.. I'm a couple of weeks behind in updating the news.. but have everything bookmarked and will update this weekend. Just thought it was a good idea to keep track of it all. I may try to organize even a little more.

Yes.. BP has reported the well pressure is at 6,720.. they keep saying it is going up.. but I don't think it is.. which means that there is casing damage.. but we already knew that right?

Edit: Well been fun watching the ROVs with you all.. I have to go for a few hours.. have fun.. hopefully it won't be too boring..

How long has it been? Just over 24-36 hours? At the rate that oil was spilling out of the well, I would think it would get up to 8,000 PSI quite quickly. So if its slowly going up, then where is all that oil and pressure going if its not coming out of the sea floor or into the cap? Yeah something is not right at all.

They have brought the pressure at which they would feel confident down to about 7500 psi, and I think this probably has to do with the fact that a few scientist feel that the overall pressure of the well has subsided via all the oil/gas leaked thus far. However, because of the very slow rate the pressure is now climbing, they don't expect it to get to this 7500 mark. SOooo, they are kind of in a no man's, 'whats next' conundrum. I.e, the well dosen't appear to especially healthy or sick.

We always get the depth and sometimes we have Lon. and Lat. but not all the time. I noticed too...and it is irritating.


Which ROV's are showing lat/lon? That would be interesting but I've never seen it on the feeds. Most of them have depth plus N and E, which are Northings and Eastings but this is way different that lat/lon and needs some fancy transformation assuming they're using UTM and not a different center point for the coordinate system. Some info here:
