BP deploys second containment box
[link to www.cnn.com]

BP built the smaller dome after a much larger, four-story containment vessel designed to cap the larger of two leaks in the well developed glitches Saturday. Ice-like hydrate crystals formed when gas combined with water and blocked the top of the dome, making it buoyant.

The new device would keep most of the water out at the beginning of the capping process and would allow engineers to pump in methanol to keep the hydrates from forming, said Doug Suttles, BP's chief operating officer for exploration and production. Methanol is a simple alcohol that can be used as an antifreeze.

Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar said the success of this latest attempt to cap the well could be known in the next few days.

"On this Thursday, we should know whether or not this alternative top hat cofferdam is going to work," Salazar said on CNN's "The Situation Room." "And then the next key date is Saturday, because by Saturday they will have the diagnostics completed through X-rays and gamma rays and pressure ratings to be able to make decisions about what the next steps are ..."

If attempts to cap the well fail, BP may try to plug the leak by shooting debris -- shredded tires, golf balls and similar objects -- under extremely high pressure into the well's blowout preventer in an attempt to clog it and stop the leak. The blowout preventer has been partially successful in sealing the well, but did not fully close when the rig exploded and sank.

Added pic...;)

THAT'S A CLASSIC FUCKING LINE. THAT'S LIKE SAYING THE TABLE SERVICE ON THE HINDENBURG WAS NEARLY FAULTLESS, BUT DESERT WAS NOT SERVED PROMPTLY.

Re: BP deploys second containment box
Sounds optimistic
the first dome that failed, I could,nt help but notice the diameter of pipe coming out of it looked only slightly bigger than half the diameter (12") of the ruptured wells riser pipe which is 21 inches in diameter, surely this bottle neck would form a constriction, and clog up as it did, so it will be interesting to see if this new smaller dome has a wider diameter pipe coming out of it.

You are psychic we all are, trouble is reading the signs before the mind steps in.

I would favor a much larger structure that was more egg like in shape with a huge diameter pipe right too the surface, this would reduce the massive pressure being exhausted by the well.
At present it seems their trying too piss in the wind.

I guess we're all a bit psychic.

I would prefer they let this baby leak!
We're already fucked.

Might as well sit back with our lemonades and snacks and enjoy the show!

Honestly - the only way to stop this leak is to find a way to contain the leak.
You can't stop it.
It's too deep, and the pressure is too great.

Yep - the shit show has begun.

I knew something was up when I thought this was HUGE news and yet there's no real news on the news for this news (haha, yes, I had to say 'news' that many times)

It always happens like that, it's sad when 'dancing with the stars' news comes on my television before this oil spill does.

Dancing with the stars = 4-5 min news segment.
Oil leak = 1min.

What kind of world is this?!?!!?

The whole deals bad for all life
The sooner its plugged the better

I have many friends in the drilling business from roughnecks right up to the ones that are in charge of these rigs, over the years some of them have lost their lives at work, its a heavy industry.
I recall visiting one now deceased, on his dinning room table there were 15 passports and all of them were his.
