    I have no doubt that they're doing everything they can to limit the damage at the leak right now, because the very existence of the company is at risk. They need to "look busy".

    My fear is that they've exhausted the feasible approaches that don't risk making it much, much worse (ie total disintegration of the BOP), so things like the current mini-pipe are more for PR than for actual serious reduction in flow. It may not be possible to stop, or even significantly reduce, the flow from the well until the relief well is drilled, which will take another two months.
