Christian A. DeHaemer has written an article at EnergyandCapital.com that fleshes out the whole BP puzzle much better than whatever the Mainstream Media is doing. Please read the whole story for yourself at:
BP’s Quest for Time
The Well from Hell… And What They’re Not Saying
… and he opens with a quotation from Lord Of The Rings, which automatically gets him 20 bonus points, in my book.
The Dwarves dug too greedily and too deep. You know what they awoke in the darkness of Khazad-dum… shadow and flame.
… here are a few pertinent points to consider, along with an alarm that many of us are trying to raise in order to prevent the loss of life of millions of Gulf Coast residents:
What strikes me as odd is the way the leadership of BP and the Obama administration is acting.
BP is running around apologizing to everyone they can find. Obama says give us $20 billion in escrow and $100 million for the people Obama put out of work on the oil rigs due to his six month ban — and BP says, “Sure thing mate, no problem.”
And all of this in a 20-minute meeting?
BP is rolling over like a simpering dog. Why?
The only reason I can think of is that the company knows — better if not as well as the Obama administration does — that it will get worse.
… now comes the scary part. Please first visit my YouTube copy of the broadcast aired on www.CoastToCoastAM.com for background on what is about to follow in this blog:
The Oil Drum, an industry sheet, recently ran an article about the sequence of events that tried to stop the oil spill.
The upshot of industry insiders was that after trying a number of ways to close off the leak, the well was compromised, creating other leaks due to the high pressure. BP then cut the well open and tried to capture the oil.
In other words: BP shifted from stopping the gusher to opening it up and catching what oil it could.
The only reason sane oil men would do this is if they wanted to relieve pressure at the leak hidden down below the seabed… And that sort of leak — known as a “down hole” leak — is one of the most dangerous kind.
No stopping it
It means that BP can’t stop if from above; it can only relieve the pressure.
So, more oil is leaking out while BP hopes it can drill new wells before the current one completely erodes.
BP is in a race against time… It just won’t admit this fact.

If there really is a 20-mile-wide horrific gas bubble building under the floor of the Gulf Of Mexico, then we might be facing the possible loss of millions of human lives along the Gulf coast in only a matter of months from now.
Please urge your representatives to demand that the President do these two things: 1) install a system of buoys in the Gulf with instruments to measure the progress of this gas bubble, and 2) obtain the Mudlog proprietary data from BP so that geologists can get a better idea of the formations under the well head.
