If the relief wells don't work, BP is gonna build a PIPELINE!

I bet you could spin a dozen conspiracy theories out of this one!

Start at 3:55.

Interesting this is being discussed now.

Masterful conspiracy no doubt. They said they wanted to connect the relief wells to other existing wells in case of a storm. So they can build a pipeline underwater but can't plug the leak. Amazing that they are so such they could build this pipeline.

Loam this situation seems to be getting more and more in our face everyday. I mean it is just crazy. Why can't anyone do something? Why are the culprits still calling the shots?

BP needs to be sued by a world constiuancy and put out of business, the best of our scientific community put to good use.

This is something that should've gone into play from day one.

They should have had a direct vertical line going from the source up to vessels that could hold the oil and transport it. Sure they'd fill up quick and a lot would spill over, but they'd be capturing a lot more than they are even now.

While that's going on they could be sourcing/manufacturing the horizontal pipeline that could connect it to the land line.

The alaska pipeline is almost 20 times as long as this would need to be, so it's not like it's an impossible feat.

The only conspiracy I see here is; Why didn't they do this from the start?
Would allowing countless millions of gallons to spew into the gulf somehow make it more acceptable? What's unacceptable about it in the first place?

False dichotomies like this never cease to amaze me.

Ahh... You forget their friends couldn't have sold that much Corexit this year had they built a pipeline right away.

Some of their other friends will sadly have to get richer because food prices will sky rocket. Especially the sea food ones...

And I'm pretty sure they have friends we don't think about and that we will have to depend on, sooner or later...

The only thing about this pipeline is the well is in a canyon thats why its called MC252 Mississippi Canyon block 252. The picture above shows how steep it is, and after hurricanes or major storms on land the water gushes out of the Mississippi River into this canyon depositing silt and causiing landslides. Thats why a pipeline up the canyon to another well is not a good idea.

I just found this info on the area. There seems to be a sunken WWII German sub down there with the well. DKM U-166 and 307 individual or groups of artifacts were documented at the site. Thats a new twist. And they just had a mine float up on the beach near by from WWII.

My big WTH moment was that they need to run tests on the skimmer ship Awhale.
Ok say you put said ship out there and it fails catastrophically, what has happened?
A sunken ship and an oil spill of oil that was already there?
For some reason I suspect the Awhale will never skim in the gulf.
I smell a rat.
Now if we can put a pipe all of the way inland to solid ground, then why can we not just reattach a pipe to the existing structure?
Listen I was a Plumber back when I was a healthy productive individual, ok back when I worked as I was never healthy and rarely productive.
Albeit I have never worked a mile under water but I can think of several ways to contain this gusher.
I made a fair to excellent living as a Plumber but I know these engineers and geniuses that work for BP make a crap load more money than I could ever dream of, and they have not had the same very viable ideas I have had?
I want to grab some suits and start shaking them like a crackdaddies baby.
This is crazy that they are not doing everything they can to make this stop or at least minimize this gusher.
I think the problem with the PTB and this issue is , that it is not in their faces.
If they will dump oil in our oceans I suggest we cover their cities.
In the spirit of our forefathers and their Tea Party, I suggest we have an Oil Party at the White House.
If we had a million people we could do the million gallon march.
Could the Police arrest people for simply carrying a quart or gallon of oil?
We could all march to the White house and dump said oil on the lawn.
Does anyone have an idea how to make this idea fly?
This crap has gone waaay too far, something harsh needs to be done.

I smell something wrong with the relief wells. They have been behind the curve on everything until now. Hmm I seem to be doing a lot of pondering today?

Relief wells=epic fail and they know it this is proof in my eyes.

Ladies and Gentlemen I think we just found our motive.

No 2nd line needed.

There is NO INTEREST in stopping the leak, BP's main interest is to save as much of the oil as possible so they can make a profit. It has been apparent in everything they have said and done since day one. At least that is the way I see it.

We are screwed. I live in Louisiana and it is obvious what is going on. Now that we see signs of oil in Texas and Florida, the entire Gulf region is screwed. I know my local beach they have found a plume 7 miles out and I am still waiting on word of weather or not there are tar balls or oil balls on the actual beach yet. I am NorthWEST of the actual rig, so it is clear to me that literally the Gulf is filling up with oil.

I totally agree that BP has no plan to plug this well. From day one, it was totally obvious that all they want is the oil out of the well and money in their pockets.

I also speculate that the two "relief" wells are going to fail, and then we would have 3 leaking wells in the gulf. Either that or BP will use both relief wells for production and make $$$$$$$$$ .....

If they can protect the environment and run a pipe from the well to the beach somewhere from this well I think it would be great. THey should dedicate all the profits from it toward cleaning uo and even improving the gulf like adding more reefs etc...

BP could score major points by dedicating this well's profits to the gulf coast.

Only if they can stop the leak and protect the environment.

Huh? If they wanted to use the oil, they wouldn't be putting dispersant into it at the wellhead, now would they? Maybe they can refine it out, because they are claiming to be capturing some, but the disperant makes it a heck of a lot harder to gather up from the surface or near subsurface.
