Oil well BUILDING pressure? 6000 to 8000 psi? From a well that blew out the BOP?
I have questions that I am hoping GLP can help me with.

How would an oil well build pressure? Once you had the dang thing capped, would it not quickly hit it's pressure? Sort of BAM pressure.

I am trained in MSA equiptment. Our little air tanks are 2216 psi. In my mind, a massive oil well would be far more than 6000 to 8000 psi. The pressure coming out blew out the BOP.

I should mention that I am a girl, and I do not know much about these things. Please help me to understand.

At one time they were saying that the pressure was 50,000 psi or more.

The wells on the north slope of Alaska run at 800psi only, on average.

8,000psi for this one would be low, as it would mean that the oil is escaping elsewhere. As far as it goes, this well has characteristics that are previously unheard of in oilfield development.

The fact that it's slowly building pressure, seems to me, is because it's being forced through the rock below and as it fills voids and cavities there is more and more resistance and that is why it's climbing slowly...
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

when you rob Paul to give to Peter ... ... ... you will always get Peters support!

What happened to the reports that the pressures in the well were somewhere between 70K and 100K PSI???

If the pressure is only at 6000 now, doesnt that mean MAJOR FAIL???

The pressure is below normal because the oil is leaking in many fissures. This fact is not being revealed to the public because there is no practical way of stopping these leaks. So the contamination will continue.....

Thanks.

I guess what I can't get my head around is the image of the gushing well. It just seems that any voids would be filled within a min. of the capping.

Don't get me wrong, I have no idea what I am talking about.

Either we were given bad information with the high psi numbers, or this is a major fail.

This is what they want to happen. The test is working.

Do not believe all the B.S. on this site and all over saying the sea floor has exploded or other nonsense.

Or you are just believing what they want you to believe... fearmongering is high till the relief wells shut it all down from the very very bottom...

Thank you.

You brought up another question that I have been wondering about.

I heard on the news that the well is now capped, and that it is set up so that oil can be drawn from the well while they complete the relief well. Also, they can shut the well off again if a hurricane comes in.

The question is, if they are able to get the oil out, why would they seal the well? BP is into making money, and they are going to owe a fortune cleaning up the damage that has been done.

I think that they would be more likely to fight to keep access to the well, and not to seal it.

Something still does not seem to add up.

Re: Oil well BUILDING pressure? 6000 to 8000 psi? From a well that blew out the BOP?
I agree it dose not make sense for the pressure to build slowly unless they were talking about the moment they were closing the valves. They still have the kill lines coming off of the BOP that could be controlling pressure also if still flowing. But when all are shut that pressure should peak quickly and hold or drop and fail. But I don't know what I'm talking about either.

Remember.

The oil well was (according to BP) leaking a Maximum of 1000 barrels a day.... we know now it is 60-80,000.

BP sure can play with the numbers can't they.....

Why should we trust them now?

I think of it as a fire hose. When you close the nozzle it does not need to "build" pressure.
