  •  BP is out of good ideas too! (11+ / 0-)

    Another thing is that we don't want to plug this well unless it's dead. We don't want to plug up the BOP at all, because we need it for other things besides a big stopper.

    For intance, once one of the kill bores (relief wells) connects, it would be nice to flow the present well some. That way, you fill from the bottom with mud, which is a really good, durable kill. Even if they'd killed and put a temporary cement plug in this well, they would have probably stabbed a new BOP and drilled out that cement once the kill bore connected.

    I think, anyway. That's how I would do it.

    It rubs the loofah on its skin or else it gets the falafel again.
