    I have been wathching it for about 4 hours that that appears to be the case.

    However, I doubut they stop pumping since that could risk a rupture of the mud plug, but periodic throttling to gage the backpressure would be a logical action and might also be a means to gage the build-up of sediment.

    I think this is more delecate work then one might suppose, despite the high pressure.

    I also suspect that at some point there might e an advantage of lowering the flow rate to reduce turbulance and increase the rate of sedimentaion.
