WATCH LIVE: BP Might Have Stopped The Leak

All Day UPDATES on the Success (or Failure) of Top Kill


Additional links and updates can be found HERE


So far so good.  The image has changed since top kill commenced.  According to BP, it now appears that drilling mud is flowing from the top of the well.

The plan as announced by BP was for the mud to displace the oil, then once that is done, displace the mud with concrete to permanently cap the wellhead.  Initially BP indicated that it could take several days for the mud to displace the oil.  It seems to have happened in less than 6 hours.


BP:  Appears only drilling mud flowing from well

Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said on Wednesday it appears drilling mud, not oil, was gushing from a ruptured undersea well six hours into an effort to halt a growing oil spill.

"What you've been observing coming out of the top of that riser is most likely mud," Suttles said at a news conference broadcast from a Louisiana command center. "We can't fully confirm that because we can't sample it. And the way we know we've been successful is it stops flowing."

"We've all been here a long time and been trying a lot of things and ridden a roller coaster," Suttles told reporters in Robert, Louisiana, and listening over the phone and Internet. "I think we just need to take the next 24 hours and see what the results are."

The goal is to halt the flow of oil long enough so cement can be pumped in to shut it off.

The mud, a substance specially created for the oil drilling industry and used in all wells drilled, weighs twice as much as water and is being pumped in by 30,000 horsepower compressors.

"Ultimately, what we need to see is that the well can't flow to surface," Suttles said. "That will be the way we know it's successful."


Just how toxic is 'drilling mud':

BP Cites Crucial 'Mistake'

'Very Large Abnormality' in the Well Wasn't Heeded Hours Before Fatal Explosion

Unusual Decisions Set Stage for BP Disaster

It was a difficult drill from the start.

API Well No. 60-817-44169 threw up many challenges to its principal owner, BP PLC, swallowing expensive drilling fluid and burping out dangerous gas. Those woes put the Gulf of Mexico project over budget and behind schedule by April 20, the day the well erupted, destroying the Deepwater Horizon rig and killing 11 men.

Government investigators have yet to announce conclusions about what went wrong that day. The final step in the causation chain, industry engineers have said in interviews, was most likely the failure of a crucial seal at the top of ...

* "First of all, i am not a fed, I have no way to prove it at this point but i am not asking you to disclose your identity not i will disclose mine. It is up to you to determine if this is worth the risk as i did. I work for Disney, that is all i can tell you."

* "I can deliver 3 to 4 days before release. I will email you the report as soon as i have it and you will wire transfer the money to my account after you get ahold of it. I am asking you to make me an offer based on the capital gains from the trade and the risk i am taking delivering this information to you? Also, i am looking to build a strong business relationship with you for future quarters and information."

* "I dont think we will get caught if we stay discrete and careful. You can count on my discretion as i am counting on yours…"

* "… $15k sounds great and $30k even better as i hope you will make a killing from Q2 earnings. I promise i will keep you informed of any unanticipated event, i keep my ears wide open here."

Then two days before the earnings were released, Yonnie unwittingly emailed the FBI a 107-page Disney document which ran through what they were going to say on their upcoming quarterly earnings conference call.

The SEC says the FBI got the Disney Q1 numbers two hours before they were publicly released.

The FBI apparently met with Yonni on May 14th in New York and gave him a envelope with $15,000 in cash.

The couple was arrested today in LA.

Agreed, the goverment no longer has to play by the rules you and I have to. The last 8 years with "Baby Boots" all of the judges have been bought up.

Dont matter if they did or do the crime. They will neaver put thAre hand on the Bible. They can now play the game anyway they want and all we can do is gripe about it.

Thats why BHO will neaver be ousted for the next 7 years. "They" put him in there and he realy aint going anyplace. Im sure "They" are already grooming the next "Bimbo" for the job to screw the American People.

The NWO no longer has to hide from us. They have control now. No Judge will ever go up agunist the goverment any longer. It would be a death senantce. & Biden has a great job a VP. All he gets to do is use "The F Word"..........

May 27, 2010 at 4:46 PM | Unregistered CommenterZarathustra
I agree with kick them all out and BHO too. But "They" groomed his since 1970 when Henery Kissenger found him. They planed on BHO getting it in 2008. They havent spent all this time to have him kicked out in just 4 years.

It dont matter what the American People want anymore. The "Shadow Goverment" is now running the show. Why do you think "They" troused him a round the world in 2008. To show the world thier new God-Oboma.

All the voting machines are set up to give "Them" to #'s as to how they want them 51-49.............just wait. All the rest should go, but they will neaver let thier "Oh Great God Obama" go. Look at the years they invested in him. Its all in the Obama Deption.

You best see it id you havent. Were no longer fighting the "Dems-&-Reps", since 2008. Its now us agunist the NWO........!

***** DB **** Please post this in the right place. It comes from my next door neighbor so I know its true.

I received this from a friend. It is not an internet forward. She received it from the person who wrote it, and she wrote the words "From a friend in Ohio ...." It is authentic, and it's the truth!

From a friend in Ohio .

Republican dinner last night

Just thought I would share with you a little bit of what we heard at last night's Republican dinner here in Crawford County Ohio . John Kasich (running for Gov. of Ohio ) was the keynote speaker. Also present were many politicians, most notably, Bob Latta, our U.S. Congressman. Mike and I walked up to Bob and thanked him for his conservative voting record and voiced our concern about what is going on in Washington. He made some funny botox remarks about Pelosi and then agreed with us that we have every reason to be concerned. As there were others waiting to talk to him, our time was brief. Although what took place later that evening should make chills run up and down everyone's spine to hear. He had asked to speak a few words at the end of the night and went up on stage. He proceeded to tell the crowd how bad things really are in Washington . He said he only had a few minutes to speak, but if he could tell us even half of what the agenda is and what this administration plans to do to our country we couldn't sleep at night. He said he only gets about 4- 4 1/2 hours of sleep a night and worries constantly about what they want to do to this country. He said that Pelosi, Reid and Obama have to be stopped.

He said, "You know, you always hear this is the most important election blah blah blah, but I am telling you people...whatever you have to do to wake people up you need to do! We have got to vote them out in 2010 or with the things they have planned for this country we won't even be a country by 2020! Ten years. You could see the look of almost desperation on his face.
He talked about the huge debt. He talked about how the CBO gets their "figures". He sits on the finance committee of some sort and listens to the ramblings of Geitner and Bernanke. He said "If you think that the Chinese won't hold this over us with all our debt you have another think coming. Our children will have nothing. I don't care if you have to go out door to door, tell at least 10 people who will then tell 10 people. We have to do this. This is the single most important election ever in the history of this country. The change that Obama promised us is NOT the change people thought he meant."

T. Dar,

Did he say how they plan to eliminate the debt to China which BOTH parties have created, certainly not from payroll taxes that BOTH parties have eliminated by giving our jobs to their foreign masters. Or how about their 97 year support of the private central bank ponzi scheme? Both parties follow two paths that will meet in the near future. Remember, this is what all herd animals wanted for generations, it has been their long term plan.

The Native Americans often relied on the lands for survival and utilized a variety of hunting methods. One popular method of hunting massive buffalo was the use of “jumps". In this process, horse-mounted Indians drove unsuspecting buffalo off the edge of a cliff, as those in the front of the herd realized the danger and tried to stop, it was to late, as the force pushing from the rear would push them off the edge. Nose to tail, off the edge they would go...

Then the Natives could go to the bottom and butcher them at their "leisure". Their are many documented Bison jump sites in America.

When China demands payment, it will not matter who is in charge...

Nose to tail, nose to tail...

I live in Ohio, Kasich is no choice, as a former Lehman Brothers executive, during his 18 years in Congress, Kasich was an architect of the failed Washington-Wall Street trickle-down policies that got us into this economic mess. He voted to give China favored trade status and supported free trade agreements like NAFTA, both of which cost Ohio thousands of jobs.

Then he went to Wall Street and cashed in on these policies at Lehman Brothers, the firm whose collapse marked the beginning of the global economic crisis.

Now Congressman Kasich wants to bring these failed policies–and his radical agenda–to Ohio.

Next Stage Of Desperate Deepwater Scramble To Take 4-7 Days At Least

May 31, 2010 at 10:43 PM | Registered CommenterDailyBail
"Not SO Fast"......................................

Matt Simmons says “Top Kill” is a sideshow, misses the big problem of a second leak 5 to 7 miles away releasing up to 120,000 barrels/day. Simmons goes on to say we might need nukes to seal the leak.

Cowan said that the submarine traveled about 400 feet down, close to the sea floor, and found oil all the way down. Trying to find the edges of the plume, he said the submarine traveled miles from side to side.

“We really never found either end of it,” he said.

This discovery seems to confirm the fears of some scientists that — because of the depth of the leak and the heavy use of chemical “dispersants” — this spill was behaving differently than others. Instead of floating on top of the water, it may be moving beneath it.

Simmons went on the say scientist are now convinced the last majority of oil is below, and often well below, the surface. June 1 starts hurricane season and they worry that a hurricane coming aground in the Louisiana / Mississippi area could “push” all the below surface oil on the beaches and even inland.

So the Saga still go's on and BHO thanks Alla, for his gift to the "Imposter".................................!

*************************** "You Lye" *********************************************** I Think........?

Lets think back for a moment here. Reamber at first they made up that ol big box, right. It froze up. Then they made up that little ol box to fit over the BOP, Reamber, right.....?

Then BP showed that realy cook Contraption that slithered down "Drilling Mud".........? Then they tryed the "Top Kill" , I think they called it.

Now today they try and cut off the "Bent Over Pipe".......& the saw gets Jamed. Dont they need a "Clean Cut Pipe" for everyone of these atemps.............? How in Hell are you going to do any of the above with a 20' bent over pipe hanging off to one side of the BOP....?

The info going around the Net is that the NK Mini Sub, blew its self up over the BOP with the last Nuke. The BOP would be long gone and only a gapeing hole on the Ocean Floor, or am I getting to far ahead of my self here........?

Could it be they are showing us a mock up in a 2'000 Gal Tank, and we would neaver know the differance here......? Something is not starting to add up here..?

It seems like this Gift from Alla is working to good here for BHO. Again, BP has "$$$$$$$ Billions $$$$$$$ in this hole in the ground. If they Nuke it, its gone for good.

Our goverment could be comming up with Lame Duck Lyes, wile BP is doing "Drill Baby Drill".....................to save its well. The goverment gets what it wanted, and BP gets to save its well. Piss on the American People, and the gulf coast. BHO has to push his Green Crap any way he can.........

I hope im wrong, but something is starting to Not Add Up Here.
