In this clip you can see the last vent valve they have to shut down. This valve is variable and will be slowly closed until this small flow stops.
In this clip the ROV (remotely operated vehicle) is monitoring the gas and oil plume gushing from under the top riser cap. What you see mainly is the blowout preventer stack and the sensor bouys they have deployed around the damaged wellhead site.
Well Pressure testing has started. BP ROV turns off the flow oil be recovered by the surface ships. This is the control valve for the line connected to the damaged blowout preventer’s kill or choke line. Four more valves to close and the flow will completely stop. At that point they will have control over […]
The existing plants in the United States are grossly inadequate, how can we keep building more when we cannot take care of the ones we have ploaded by MsMilkytheclown on Sep 20, 2011 Fairewinds Introduces a Japanese Language Edition and Identifies Safety Problems in all Reactors Designed Like Fukushima vimeo.com Gundersen expresses concerns that the […]
This is the flow rate after they closed the first of five valves to test the well integrity. Basically low pressure is bad, the higher the pressure readings they get the better. This will tell them if there is any damage to the well bore below the sea floor. One of the relief well is […]

In this clip the ROV (remotely operated vehicle) is monitoring the gas and oil plume gushing from under the top riser cap. You can see the top cap rocking back and forth.
This top hat device is standing by and will go on top of the new capping device. Over the large pipe coming out the top. This is so the will be able to produce oil from the new capping device with no leaks.
Question by Andy F: What do you think needs to be done to prevent another BP-style oil spill disaster? And since this is being posted in the “politics” section, do you think the Republicans or Democrats would be better at putting new disaster-prevention plans in place? Please say why, also, if you want to. Best […]
They have successfully remove the old top hat containment cap. They unbolted the flange and have now lowered a new transition spool with the proper flange connection. Now no oil and gas will be leaking out into the ocean anymore.
