You kind of have to look at the pic's with your minds eye, nobody can really physical look at the crack for themselves, that Yellow basket has some
good weight to it, it would take a good amount of force pressure to move it, it has been there in that position for days up till that eruption burst,
sitting level and flat.
now the yellow basket in the pic is drop over, Since the ROV hovers above everything and the light casts forward and down what shadow is there unless
your looing at a distance of depth and width, it's a fractor of width and depth there is no other shadows there.
right afterwards it cleared the ROV's turned away than all kinds of silt debris was moving around than the camera tuns back and the yellow basket has
a few boyancy lifters added to the one side another tool bin added and the silt pushed back to cover it up.
If it is normal occurance why go to the trouble of fixing and covering back up.
The zone that BOP is in, is on a fault that runs right up to the st lawrence
So your going to have natual occurances of fractors, and fractors will take the easiest root and follow towards another crack, The Well hole is
fractored all the way round it and badly cemented. How long it lasts only time will tell.
This kind of drilling can not be done fast, Has to be done slowly steadly so the well wall is cemented good and solid and binds so its strengthens the
entire length, over time it becomes stronger than the steel.
