Re: BP says it will show 'top kill' attempt live
pressure from congress to keep the feed on..

nice to see congress do something right for a change..

we wouldn't have this feed if it weren't for congress pressuring BP
 Quoting: ^TrInItY^


It seems to me that this is a clear indication that we are meant to witness something significant. Congress no longer, if ever, does anything right for a change.

Stay tuned.

There will be no top kill

It just blew wide open

Here are the pics I took about a half hour ago as it started

Awesome, and scary.

If this is the new norm, we are screwed for sure.

My heart is actually pounding in my chest. This damn right scary. They have tapped pandora's box and can't close it.

To me it looks like Methane hydrates storm with blobs of oil floating by. (I could be wrong, however.)

I don’t think that this is good. These two links sometimes look different.

Re: BP says it will show 'top kill' attempt live
This thing is 10x's worse.

is it because it blew up big and is coming out 10x's worse or is it because they are shooting concrete and mud down it's throat?
 Quoting: FatalWishes


If they started pumping into the bop, there will be a net influx, and the fluid will move on the path of least resistance, or out the riser in this case. Hopefully, you'll see the rate increase to where the rate through the kinks in the riser make it easier to flow down the well. I'd expect to see something like this "explosion" until they get the flow going the opposite direction. I just don't know what's really going on there right now, but this could possibly be just pumping water to see if they can get injection into the bop. it would be like pushing on the end of a syringe, and everything accelerating out the riser...

It is really hard to see. I can agree with it looking like a methane hydrate storm for sure. In the second vid it definitely has blobs of oil. And it looks like a lot more than what has been coming out previously.

I don't think this is good either. I hope there is an explanation for this.

Ok I will go with this. It seems reasonable and it makes me feel more calm and rationale.

I did hear on the radio that they would be doing some testing.

Those loops are freaky as hell and have me worried.

I hope what you wrote is what is going on.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 792783


Yet-to-be-confirmed rumors are that the casing wall has finally worn through, about 300 feet below seabed, at an annulus (coupling), and the gas and oil are now finding a new way out to the seabed.

Not good news, as it will make the Top-Kill/Junk Shot nearly ineffectual... At the least, it means that more pressure and mud/cement is going to be required.

It almost looks like they are keeping the BP link purposely out of focus and with no time or date stamp again
[link to www.bp.com]


The CNN link looks different, and I cannot see the time and date because it is not showing behind the headers.

[link to www.cnn.com]

On the BP link it looks like a freaking big hole with stuff poring out of it.


I really, really hope I’m wrong about what I think I see. Wipes eye.

Scary frickin insight. On the other hand this is all so raw that I'm not sure anyone has 100% control over the information war. The one hand saying "cut the feed while we screw up the top kill" may not be very closely related to the hand saying "congress says we have to show it." Not sure how the web of information on this story works but I think this is an uncoordinated catastrophe at many levels.
