PLEASE GO TO Daily Kos LMRP Liveblog Diary #19 - Witnessing Geocide NOW!
Please do not Rec this diary, please Rec the Mothership diary so that we keep the liveblog solidly on the Rec List today.
Welcome to the BP Junk Shot Diary (aka DKTKLB, aka LMRP BS) #18. This diary is a submersible (ROV) for the Top Kill/Junk Shot Liveblog Mothership: 29 May, 2010 - Day Four.
We are following BP's latest efforts to
pretend to continue work on the Top Kill and/or Junk Shot LMRP which involves cutting the top of the riser off replacing the damaged BOP with the 2nd relief well rig BOP therefore making the 2nd relief well rig useless.
Come here to comment, ask questions, share information, cry on each other's shoulders, rant, whatever you need - come on in. Expect lots of BP
hate motive questioning and maybe talk of mermaids...
For a description of the mothership/ROV liveblogging process, check out this thread.
It bears repeating - Please DO NOT Rec this diary, Rec the Mothership here.
Please do not post images or videos. This will help those with slower connections to stay with us. Please post links only.
-BP COO Doug Suttles says that top kill has failed and they will abandon this approach.
-Their next attempt will be to cut and remove the riser from the LMRP, installing a cap connected to the relief rig, and capture most of the escaping oil. Should take approx. 4 days but could take longer. BP is confident it will work but can't guarantee it.
