That is what I was thinking - they have cams to view and cams for us to view.

Check out camera Q4000 ROV 2 it's showing major cracks in the seabed....

I saw that too, but it's so blurry I wasn't sure if I was just seeing shadows. It almost looks like there is a little plume in the center towards the back of the shot, but again blurry shadows could be the culprit.

That's what I thought at first, but then I saw it again and they spent a lot of time looking at it.....they shut the camera down right after that.

Hard to tell if its a crack...it does look like seepage but its hard to say if its coming from that alleged crack or if it's just dust. To me it looks like seepage, but I hope I am wrong. On a side note: Unless the dragged something across the sea floor, that crack/line was not there last night.

EDIT: Video will not work here so here is the link: www.youtube.com...

BP mentioned the bubbles in their press conference just now. Said no big deal, but they would sample and test to see what the gas is.


Good catch...even the MSM caught this one: BP 'feeling more comfortable,' but testing bubbles seen near well cap - But a company official says samples will be taken of bubbles seen on video. BP vice president Kent Wells says bubbles are common underwater, but they want to make sure it's not a sign of gas escaping from the well.

Someone seems to think that line across the screen is a crack. The clouds you see are supposedly oil seeping from the sea floor. I don't know if it is oil or not, but that line was not there last night.

Bubbles spotted coming from a pipe/valve on the very bottom of the oil well. Skandi 2 was digging mud out of this pipe a minute ago but has since moved on. I tried to get the best screen shot I could but again, the camera was conveniently placed in a way you could barely get one:



I don't know if these are the bubbles they are talking about, but they are bubbles.

Was doing a search on the ROVs and videos on youtube of anything leaking from the sea floor. I cam across this guy's channel: d1k2006 channel and he uploaded quite a few videos from July 16, when some of us saw the seeping oil from the sea floor. These were I believe of BOA DEEP C 2. If you have time its a good thing to watch them. Make a judgment for yourself though.

That "mud" might be methane ice, at least partly. Bubbles could be sublimation of the methane ice, or nitrogen gas from the fast setting concrete around the well bore.

Just saw wisps of oil at seafloor on Q4000 ROV2.

EDIT: of course now they changed the view or camera

They are trying to plug it. So far they tried 3 things and each of them have been too big. Seems like their answer to everything is "plug it up."

Still a lot of mud in there.. the last thing they tried putting in there wouldn't even go in very far.

Well a few inches of the pipe is broken or decayed a lot. Looks like at one point something tried to cut it. So I would imagine they would need something longer if they are trying to plug it. I like how they just take this as bubbles and nothing more. Will be interesting to see if the tests they are claiming to do on the bubbles turn up anything.

Speaking of bubbles....does anyone know what is going on in the frame at the bottom left where there are tons of bubbles? Is it supposed to be doing that???
