It looks like they planned to bypass the well after they severed the pipes that got stuck. This is what Williams said on the 60 min. documentary. What does that mean exactly? It is looking to me more and more like they only ever drilled at Well A with 2 bores.

Subject: MC 252 #001 - Plug back approval requested
We are in the midst of a well control situation on Me 252 #001 and have stuck pipe. We are bringing out equipment to
begin operations to sever the drillpipe, plugback the well and bypass.
The APM for the plugback is submitted in Ewell.
The BOP test is due tomo"ow. We would like to set the plugs (2) after we kill the well and then test BOPs per the
procedure in the APM. Please advise if this is acceptable.·
Please let me know if you have any questions or require additional information. Thanks.
