Liveblog Mothership: Day Six and a Half

Alkalinesky has the newest diary posted. BP Liveblog ROV Diary 26 - LMRP Continued

Please do not Rec this diary, please Rec the Mothership diary so that we keep this solidly on the Rec List today.

Check out my Image diary for images of the work going on, the commentary may help you understand what is happening.

[Update]: BP has a good diagram of the cutting process.

It bears repeating - Please DO NOT Rec this diary, Rec the Mothership here.

I am one to look at the situation as is, not as it could be. I go by the motto, I'll worry about today, today. I truly believe that BP's crew, President Obama, Secretary Chu, Admiral Allen, and the others working on this are doing their best with the best people they can find helping them. BP's ownership and management are doing their best to limit the damages this is doing to their company and profits and that includes keeping as much oil as possible out of Gulf and off the coast.

Here is a totorial on the sources of pressure on the well

Here is an excellent image of what is supposed to exist under the wellhead. Take the comments from Halliburton with a grain of salt since this is part of their "blame those two" PR campaign.
