VL, if you had any clue about what you were talking about, I'd argue with you. For now all I was trying to do is have an itelligent discussion (BIG HINT) not someone insisting that they are right by being a broken record. Do you know what that is or even means?
BTW, I worked in the Gulf for Shell for no less than 6 years, so I'm a bit more of an expert on it than you may want to imagine much less acknowledge. I doubt you even know what "the mud pile" means. In fact, I wonder if you have even been to the Gulf of Mexico.
I do not own BP stock and even if I did, integrity is my God and it would not allow me to ignore solid data that pointed to well integrity problems. I'm more interested in taming this monster and providing insight to intelligent laymen rather than in promoting myself (hint). If you did a little more research you would know that the seep in question is close to another well that is shut in and likely either related to it or a natural seep in itself. The fact the well cap has held and there is a steady pressure build up albite slowly points to no well leakage problems. FYI Were there a rubpture somewhere or a new failure developed in Deep Horizon, then there would be a sudden pressure drop.
From here on, I propose to continue to disseminate insights from the oilfield sector without being sidetracked by banal inuendos.
Nice post Rockdoc.
I don't know anything about the technical aspects of oil drilling, so I keep out of most of the technical discussion.
I hope the cap works, but if it doesn't, it at least sounds like they are close to drilling a relief well which could be the final solution. Any reports on how soon this might happen?
I said September 4, Rockdoc didn't want to go on the record with a prediction.
