Pressure is good, no new leaks underground

Wish they would tell us what the exact pressure is or maybe show us directly.

edit: Noticed the article said

"He said there were no signs of any new leaks underground."

does this mean that there were old leaks? I know they were not quoting him directly so maybe he did not word it that exact way.

They also plan on resuming the drilling of the relief wells.

Yeah no new leaks other than the ones kilometers away that were reported 2 weeks before deepwater went down...

Good try.

some spokesman for our MSM said that BP were saying that the pressure was now 6700psi (would like to see the gauges to prove that) and apparently BA is to make a statement regarding the developments 2.30pm UK time, which is about now... be interesting to see what he's got to say, may not be true but hey ho!

I watched gas and red material (oil?) erupting from the sea bed at irregular intervals today for about an hour before the ROV was raised. It was often quite violent . Here's a short video of what I saw:

Here is footage of oil leaking from the sea bed. It's in slow motion to rebut the criticism that the clouds of material were stirred up by the ROV's propulsion fans.

A CNN article reports the pressure at 6700 psi.

I was hoping for an end of the world explosion. I guess it isn't going to happen
