Skat this is a great find. The timing is important.
If it is 7 Sep then it is important to note that they already had top killed and cemented the well A from the top. So if this video shows the oil/gas
fluid gushing out of the "strip out" BOP stack, it means something must have happened in between. Also notice the pattern. First they cap, then the
pressure build ups until breakig point, then burst. So it shows that cementing the top is futile unless they can close the gap at the bottom of the
well which they can't because the single well-bore entry has probably broken into several fractured pathways.
If it is 9 July then it would fit in between the time 5 to 10 July while the relief well had already intercepted the rogue well at 18000ft. So
although they monetarily blocked the gusher at this time, some oil was still leaking other pathways to the top not necessarily through the gusher
well by this time. Well A and Well B were leaking more gas & oil from the upper reservoir at a higher level at about 13000ft bml. BML means the
depth is measured from the seafloor level. If it is BSL means the depth is measured from sea level. So BML and BSL difference is 5000 ft.
See the importance of chronological record of events - a time line. I will forward you the spread sheet that I have been using to keep records /
track of things. We need to look at things in correct perspective when interpreting and of course the first interpretation may not necessary be
correct. I have also emphasized on the importance of framework so that we do not go astray. We might change 10-20 % of here and there in terms of
timing and accuracy of prediction but we will be pretty spot on the direction of the model. So far we are 80-90% on track. We only need to fill in
the details as we are currently doing. BP would be surprised how close our reconstruction will be when we are finished.
