Will it work? New cap put on leaking oil well in Gulf. (Video and Pictures)


welcometoafreeworld.blogspot.com

Recent underwater video footage shows a new cap being placed on BP's leaking oil well in the Gulf of Mexico, but will it contain the gusher as everyone hopes? Yet for some odd reason, BP officials have yet to comment on the video and images released on-line.

Today, BP reported it had succeeded in putting a new cap on the leaking oil well in the Gulf of Mexico. Several photographs and video have been released on the Internet but BP isn't talking. They have yet to respond publicly in regards to the photographs and videos. Either way, the photo's and video look genuine, but will this stop the problem. BP has publicly admitted the new cap is only a temporary measure and they plan on using cement to plug the leak permanently. The use of cement has never been tested in such an extreme situation and many believe this is an experiment in itself.

Hoorah!!! This is what should have been done originally. Anyone with the slightest bit of mechanical knowledge noticed the bolted flange below where they spent all that time cutting the pipe above it. The only reason I can figure they didn't do this originally was that they didn't have the equipment built to bolt onto the flange. Once it is aligned, bolted in place, and pressure checked, it should be "fairly" easy to plumb it to the surface ships . I would imagine, however, that they will wait for relief wells to penetrate to minimize pressure at this new well head as not to subject it to full pressure. An end finally in sight...

Hopefully it works. Isn't this just a temporary measure?

Leak look much more contained at this point. Looks like they should be able to hook up to the new cap and get all of the oil.
It would be the first positive news this country has seen in a while.

How can they contain the oil spewing out at 20 to 70 thousand psi?

that 70,000 psi don't seem to bother eels... they swim right in it

Surely BP has the equipment to contain a few eels...

actually... the eels may have found it quite stimulating... perhaps they'll come back later with more friends for an exotic heat scrub party.

Also the eels were not stained with oil... maybe because it's NOT oil. Maybe it'a a combination of asphalt and methane... what you get from asphalt volcanoes found in the Gulf.

Of course we won't really know since they won't let anyone near the area

oops.... my mistake.... they were not eels.... the plumes were obscuring their real features... they were leviathans... these deep sea creatures can easily handle up to 200,000 psi

I think it's more like 100,000 if you count all the pressure. Not really sure how they can.
