Great footage, great link, continuous live feed, without having to constantly reload.

Yep, I would gestimate it's putting out atleast 120,000 barrells a day, just a good guess, but it is cranking out the destruction.

I think (but truly hope not) that BP is in for a big surprise when they try to mud/cement this sucker.

It is like trying to stop a frieght train. It would take so much pressure to stop and reverse the flow of this monster that I am afraid of on little stress crack in that pipe from the accident and the pipe will open up like a sardine can.

I hope this is not the case, but the percentage of success in my opinion is less than 10 percent, with a probability of unforeseen doom hitting the 50 plus percent.

Boy, I guess I woke up with my glass half empty this morning. Well, married for 14plus years will do that to a guy:)

Isn't the pipe kinked?

How is the topshot supposed to get past it?
Does the pipe run horizontal or does it make a 90 deg. downward bend?

Too many unanswered questions.

Anyway...

Top Kill could stop spill or make it worse

If it's not done just right, it could make the leak worse.

Bob Bea, an engineering professor at the University of California at Berkeley, said the procedure carries a high risk of failure because of the velocity at which the oil may be spewing.

If some of the higher estimates of 3 million to 4 million gallons a day are correct, "it's going to spit everything back in your face," Bea told The Associated Press. He estimated that anything above 1.6 million gallons a day would be too much for a top kill to work.

It's been going like this since it had another eruption last night and the emergency (imho) decision to do the topkill Now and Live.

to me that looks like the original view of the leak when the pipe was on the ground...then a few days ago, the pipe moved up in the air a bit and started gushing like a vortex of doom. not sure if the ground slid under it or the BOT did something to unkink it.

Same one as they always pumped out, like here:

[link to newsusa.myfeedportal.com]

It is flowing steadily, as it has been. BP claims that they will __not__ take it down during the "top-kill" attempt.

"if the upward flow in the wellbore with tremendous pressure and also 'momentum'too(as well is so d33p)

Like a group of traveling cars...you cannot stop it at once but must gradually stop it down or the dynamic pressure pulse could blow the seafloor hole to incredible size



Good times?!?!?



Good times...how is it

Re: RE: Oil Volcano OH SHIT! I HAVEN'T SEEN THIS GUSHER BEFORE!
This is vid feed of the riser pipe you are looking at, same riser leak they have been showing.
This is not what the Topkill is being done to.
The topkill is being done to the BOP, which is 4 stories tall, we have not seen vid of that today yet.
I doubt we will, I dont think they are going to show the BOP, they will be showing this riser pipe thats a little bit away from BOP.
