If we are down around in the 4,000 to 5,000, 6,000 range that could potentially tell us that the hydrocarbons are being diverted someplace else,

It could also be to relieve the one's that are working out there.
You have got to remember there is a lot of them probably working night and day so that's a possibility.
If you find out more keep us ATSers informed if you can plans change so fast its hard to know whats going on sometimes.

These are not leaked video's from the BP oil spill but footage from a film called 'Petropolis' which is aerial footage of the tragic alberta oil tar sands.
National Incident Commander Admiral Thad Allen held a press conference today to explain the next steps BP is taking in its attempt to plug the gushing oil well in the Gulf of Mexico. After several failed attempts to plug the leak, BP is increasingly optimistic about this latest attempt, and Admiral Allen notes that we will know later tonight after an integrity test that will seal the well completely whether this really is the end of the leak.
Using a whiteboard with an illustration of the gushing well (because he didn’t have access to Powerpoint), Admiral Allen explained that the tests on the new cap have been approved by the government and would begin “later this evening.” The integrity test is critical to the success of this new plugging attempt, so BP and the government should know whether it is successful later this evening.
He also went through the details of how the testing would work, including the application of pressure to the leak and the closing of the top of the pipe to stop the oil from leaking.
