WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE SEABED LOOKS LIKE WHERE THEY ARE DRILLING HERE IS THE LINK
Zero hedge has a great pictorial layout on what the seabed surface is like; from the contours to the make up of the floor. Lots of good stuff here; I had no idea of these huge escarpments.

It looks like a lot of the oil may form a large pocket between the escarpments. I keep hearing about large down deep deposits of oil in the sea water in depths below one thousand feet. Had no idea there was a deep canyon out there covering half the gulf.

Is the oil just going to sit there for a time killing all of the life in the deeper zones the slowly rise and move out to the gulf stream?

Anyway lots to see at the link; helped me picture the gulf and I hope it helps others.

I was just amazed to learn that the entire structure could be taken out by an undersea landslide. Not very fast moving if it happened; but unstoppable in its force. These topographic diagrams just made the doom all that more possible.

But if they expose the salt dome then you can have large scale coastal erosion.

I think doing that would trigger a mega-tsunami that would devastate Western Europe, Western Africa, the US itself.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH:
Alan Isaacman
The People Vs Larry Flynt
"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."

 Quoting: PatrikC325


I think that with drilling through a salt diapir and the weight of the slope above the well; we could have significant erosion and a slow salt dome seepage down to the GOM floor.

We know that the drill string has been fractured; the Top Kill failed miserably shows us that and the cracks in the floor seem to show Methane in greater pressure and abundance than previously thought.

Need to have SHR or someone else far more knowledgable than me pipe in. But with the weight of the slope above the well head and increase in fracturing of the surrounding area sure seems to lead credence to the thought of a massive slow landside to the GOM floor.

That is a huge amount of mass over the BOP and from what i have read if the fracturing continues the whole mountainous mass will come sliding down.

I wonder if this will come in the form of Small EQ's and a lowering of the sea floor. Blowout's in the surrounding oil rigs perhaps? just a thought.
