Default What are your Idea's on stoping the BP oil leak.

Meaning they have know Idea how to stop the oil leak. I would like to see some of the Ideas you all could come up with. I have a couple here goes.


#1 Why can't they just crush the end of the pipe causing a crimp? It may not seal it all the way but I think it would slow it enough till the other hole can be drilled.

#2 What about an explosion? What if a sub shot it with a torpedo. I think this is more or less how they closed the oil geyser in Iraq.

#3 What about just inserting a slightly smaller pipe into it. This also may not seal it completely but I imagine you could redirect around 70 to 80 percent of it.

the oil and debris moving through the pipe is moving so fast that it's grinding away the pipe.


I think the well head/pipe is gone by now.

They just showed a photo of it on cnn. There has to be like 25 feet of pipe left. Possibly more.

One thing I have learned from the mane, is that every person on here including myself knows everything. Also I have learned we are always right.

Dude drilled a friggin' asteroid in space and detonated a nuclear warhead inside it to save Earth and its inhabitants. Oh wait, he died in said heroic attempt. Sorry. I'd go with Tebow.

Ask this guy. If he can save 3 men who are 255,000 miles from Earth he can devise a containment plan out of some plastic urine bags, garden hoses, and a sock.

Gene would redirect the oil leak........to Myrtle Beach.

What about the oil tanker bladder system? We were going to put an end to maritime oil spills.

for real...they should get a bigger pipe and put it over the broken one, then weld it shut over top.

I was about to suggest the same thing, anyway, if that's doesn't work maybe they can force the pipe to watch "30 on 30" LA Raiders episode?

Sounds like a metaphor for your weekend bender back in the day at some dive motel when they ran unlimited "adult channel" access.

I hope moving forward we get away from the Toyota "Just in time" model of cost cutting and get back to building and designing things with fall backs.

It just seems that between the Financial markets, Car gas pedals sticking, oil leaks, bridges and infrastructure crumbling that we as the human race are cutting things thin in order for a small % to be wealthy.

Maybe I am just a pessimist at heart.

So here's the thing - it isn't as bad as it could be. Basically right now it is leaking not a full on pass through. The well isn't dispersing oil full bore. BP estimates that if this thing goes full bore open it would pump out 60,000 barrels a day. That's 12 times more than it is doing now. So doing things like crushing pipe etc scares the crap out of them because it actually might make it FAR worse.

This was one hell of a well.

So here is the one thing that I haven't heard anyone say but I imagine they're exploring the possibility if this thing goes full bore - tactical nuke. Delivering a tactical nuke to 5,000 feet and the resulting pressure is probably a pretty big engineering undertaking. Especially given the fact that they probably would want to embed the thing a couple of hundred feet into the sea floor. The resulting detonation would have to be of sufficient force to essentially cause the sea floor to shift to an extent that would cap the well.

The US has actually explored using tactical nukes in mining etc back in the 50's so it isn't completely uncharted 'water".

Fun stuff... not....

Send in Tebow, Chuck Norris and John Effin' Elway. The overpressure would be tremendous and the well would sieze up from fear. The mass crater damage to the sea floor would be extensive and there would be a genuine tsunami effect on a global scale. A truly frightning, but ultimately effective prospect.
If that isnt an option (and considering the massive catastrohphic environmental impact, it probably isnt...), I would just shoot a bunch of old tires, golf balls and frayed gym rope (and maybe my ex wife for good measure) in to the well and pray it clogs and seals itself off. Good luck BP....bunch of Jack-holes.

BTW...Gene Kranz is a BA.
