    for #1 but, based on BP's total incompetence, I'm going with #2.

      There are no GPS signals 5000 ft under water (or 20 feet).  My theory is that it is the coordinates of the top ship.  Of course they could use accelerometers and base the movement off of that.  Submarines must use something to chart their position.

      What is accurate is the depth and the compass heading.  Anyways, they are either at the BOP or one of the other sections of broken pipe.
