I suppose one unlikely benefit of the Gulf oil spill is that at least BP know there's some oil down there! Hats off to the geologists for hitting the nail on the head.
I think Chris was not making a joke. Way I read it is a bit of damp sarcasm directed at the idea that the devil can show you how to stir the sauce and not give you the knowledge to seal the cover of the bucket.40 million should of been spent on the prevention before the fact. See what happens when you cut corners. This may be another an idea...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLniJXCTIiE
How long before the relief wells are active? Anything else is going to be a 'band-aid' solution, no?
Methane hydrates have been known about since the 1930s at least.To get back to the original question; how do you lag a pipe so that you can run hot water through it down through a mile or so of ocean then still have it come out hot at the bottom?
JimBob; I have more than one question that I can not seem to find the values for.At the junction of the where the flex joint is coupled to the BOP, what is the ID?
With respect to this area, what is the ID of the casing below the BOB coupling as it continues below the sea floor.
If I need to be more specific, relate this to the Well problem in the Gulf, please.
These values can help me determine that my idea needs adjustments.Let me rephrase that, whether my idea might have some value for inspiration...
