  •  Do you know what they estimate the range (2+ / 0-)

    of that ratio to be?

    Thanks again for your comments. Super informative helpful and detailed!!!

    •  I've found nothing on the intertubes (1+ / 0-)

      for this ratio. Most of the sources say that the well is kicking periodically as the gas comes through.

      I would think they could put a sampler and flow rate device in the leak. This is not a tough thing to do. Everything needed is off the shelf and would only require a ROV for the setup.

      But, I don't think BP wants a true reading. Without this hard data they can obfuscate in the coming litigation.

      •  Thanks once again!! I really appreciate your (0+ / 0-)

        knowledge on the subject.

        At this point I think we should have the ability to test collect and monitor all of BP activities. Having an ROV at our direction and control is essential at this point.

    •  It's between 50% and 75% gas by volume (1+ / 0-)

      And it varies over time. Gas is the majority of the flow volume in a new well - the gas is in higher concentrations at the top of the well.

      There's really not point in us trying to eyeball this number - it's oh so easy for us to call BP liars on this, there's no way for us to be proven wrong in a way that we would accept - BP is lying, the Feds are lying, everyone is lying. Only we know the truth behind this vast conspiracy...

      Leave it to Republicans to set the house on fire and then rant that the fire department is socialist.
