Comments on: How much damage will the BP oil spill cause? http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate-uk/2010/05/14/how-much-damage-will-result-from-the-bp-oil-spill/ Wed, 16 Nov 2016 01:37:11 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: www222Lu http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate-uk/2010/05/14/how-much-damage-will-result-from-the-bp-oil-spill/comment-page-1/#comment-11566 Tue, 01 Jun 2010 08:55:57 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate-uk/?p=7453#comment-11566 If its not a blow by or fear for a blow by, its rather simple to replace the so called failing BOP. 20 years ago I presented my company a concept of an equipment to replace a failing BOP. Any way, 27 years ago I presented the oil majors Shell, Exxon and BP a concept for oil drilling; cheaper, faster and safer. Most major advances in oil drilling of the last 25 years were included in that concept; coiled, monodiameter, underbalanced, snake. So to my opinion the oil spill is a result of rather clumsy operations. best regards, www222Lu ,JvdVeen

The biggest worrier I have seen so far is BP. Sure they are losing millions because of this oil floating up and kill fish and wildlife daily.

They are also spending millions, without comment about how much money they are spending or for that matter losing on this one site.

I’ll bet you that 99.9% of the population worried about this pollution are still buying fuel for their cars. Of those I’d guess that about 50% of these go to any other company that is not BP. Yes I can see everyone being mad and worried about this problem happening, I would just see that the support of BP while it is happening a good idea.

Sure if you wish, go to another oil company when the problem is fixed. Unfortunately, I am the occupant of an electric wheel chair 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If I was still able to drive a vechile on the roads, until this problem is solved, I would gladly by my fuel from BP to make a donation so they can clean up ASAP.

They already have a 78 ton metal box which they can put on top of the leak on the ocean floor. I suggest they start vacuuming mud off the sea bed and dumping the mud on top of the box. Eventually, the mud will build up a large roughly conical mound on top of, and around, the box and leak. The weight of the mud bearing down on the box will seal it effectively against the sea bed. The sheer mass of mud will counteract the overpressure of the oil from the well. The relief well currently being drilled will eventually remove the oil overpressure, so the mud can then be removed by pumps and the leak sealed in a more permanent fashion.

Oil sands can provide clean and environmentally friendly oil to the world for over a hundred years. This without bringing the hurt and pain to environmentally sensitive regions that do not deserve this again.

It’s unfortunate that this needed to happen for the world to wake up that an endless supply is located onshore.
