FLASHBACK - BP caps DIFFERENT WELL MORE LIES ?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This bears further checking, but the gist of the story is that BP drilled two wells (confirmed) abandoned the first one when it got into trouble (also confirmed), then drilled the second well which exploded. The theory put forward on this video is that the media stunt of capping the well was done to the remains of the first well, not the major leak at the Deepwater Horizon site.

WELL #A
Latitude 28.738132500000003
Longitude -88.36592777777777

WELL #B
Latitude 28.73778527777778
Longitude -88.36682805555554

check this out
Use the above decimal mapping coordinates on the live marine traffic map linked below (as you move the map around, the coordinates change). You will see where the ROVS are in relationship to the TWO well blowouts:

http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/default.aspx?level0=100

It appears the SKANDI NEPTUNE, which has been showing images of the "new cap for the BOP" is at the location of the FIRST well that blew, and NOT the second well (that destroyed the rig).

Note: The marinetraffic website does not have a mechanism for saving the map coordinates in the URL, so after you reach the page, use the pull down menu at left labeled "Go to Vessel" and select SKANDI NEPTUME which will center the ROV ship as well as show a recent track.

UPDATE

These are screen captures from July 22nd.

In this first screencap, the location of the BOA DEEP C is noted. This is the location of the Deepwater Horizon drilling site; the well seen gushing oil and gas into the Gulf following the explosion of the drilling rig last April.

In this second screencap, the location of the SKANDI NEPTUNE is indicated. This is the ROV control ship currently displaying what we are told is the successfully capped wellhead.

The problem is that as of July 22nd when these screencaps were taken, the SKANDI NEPTUNE and its ROV appear to be some distance from the Deepwater Horizon, at the location of the first attempted well.

BP OIL - NO BS !! - 2 WELLS DRILLED ABANDONED

Webmaster's Commentary: 
This is very long because it goes into fine detail, but what it documents, using official BP and MMS documents, plus the live feed from the ROV cameras, is that the well we have been seeing on TV since the "capping" on July 16th is not the destroyed Deepwater Horizon wellhead that has been gushing oil since last April, but the first attempted well which was abandoned.

FORGET BP AND GOVERNMENT CLAIMS; OIL STILL LURKING BENEATH SURFACE OF SAND ALONG THE GULF COAST!

On a second trip to the island with a Fox 8 News crew, Hahn brought a shovel and struck oil, turning up thick, black oil that had not been heavily weathered and did not appear to have been dispersed.

"I would have never thought that this oil would be this deep underground," Hahn said.

Aug 09 11:02

LET'S CALL THIS "WELL-GATE!"

The Skandi ROV #1, one of the pair that were parked in front of the oil gusher all those weeks, was moved after the tropical storm came through the Gulf. It is now parked in front of "Well A," the one that BP first attempted, then capped and abandoned after problems developed. They then drilled "Well B" which is the one that blew Deepwater Horizon out of the water and was and still is gushing oil.

BP claim that they are showing you video of a capped Well B, which is a lie.

BP's oil now oozing out from Beach sand in Louisiana

That's why they didn't allow photographers...they were just BURYING the oil. I've seen other videos like this...pristine-looking beaches, where all BP did was bring in acres of sand and bulldoze it over the oil. They didn't "clean up" a damned thing, they just buried it.

Feds Can’t Find Oil But Satellite Photos Show BP Gulf Oil Spill Covering 12,000 Square Miles

Speculation: winds from Bonnie obliterated most of the thin sheen throughout the area; but since then, sheen has had time to “reassemble” into observable layers that noticeably affect the sunglint on MODIS images, and the backscatter on radar, but may not look like much to folks out in the Gulf on vessels or in low-flying aircraft. That’s our theory at this point.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Shake a bottle of oil and vinegar salad dressing and sure enough, very little oil will be seen at the top. That is what happened during Bonnie. But let that same salad dressing sit still for a while and the oil eventually separates and floats back to the top. That is what is happening now!

BP Has Two Different Oil Wells Spewing Underwater

So there it is in black and white next to living color. BP are lying. Ms. Williams either lied or was given false information to send me in order to attempt to throw me off track. Two wells, two distinct locations, twin wellheads and all the other equipment. And still the video from the Skandi subs are showing Well A on your network and cable news, but you clearly see a well at location B also spewing oil in the Youtube video.

US report on BP spill censured

Residents of US states along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico are angry at a government report suggesting that %75 of the oil leaked from the ruptured BP well is gone.

The affected Americans in the Gulf coastal states maintain that the rosy report presented by the US government is going to keep BP's disastrous spill out of the limelight.

"There is no way anyone can tell me that is it over with. I have proof. I know where it is at," shouted a Gulf resident angrily, holding up a contaminated water sample from the Gulf, Sky News reported on Monday.

The Crime of the Century: What BP and US Government Don’t Want You to Know--With photos
Posted by Alexander Higgins - August 7, 2010 at 2:16 am
To judge from most media coverage, the beaches are open, the fishing restrictions being lifted and the Gulf resorts open for business in a healthy, safe environment. We, along with Pierre LeBlanc, spent the last few weeks along the Gulf coast from Louisiana to Florida, and the reality is distinctly different. The coastal communities of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida have been inundated by the oil and toxic dispersant Corexit 9500, and the entire region is contaminated. The once pristine white beaches that have been subject to intense cleaning operations now contain the oil/dispersant contamination to an unknown depth.

Fury Over Gulf Of Mexico Oil Spill Report

Gulf Coast residents and business owners have reacted with alarm to claims that around 75% of the oil that leaked from the BP Deepwater Horizon rig has gone.

They fear the report by US government scientists will cause political and media attention to fade and that they will be abandoned as they struggle to cope with incomes and livelihoods devastated by the leak.

Report: BP audit detailed rig's flaws before spill

A newspaper says it has obtained an internal audit conducted by BP PLC on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig that details severe safety flaws months before the Gulf of Mexico spill.

The Sunday Times said in its report that the audit details how the drilling rig, owned by contractor Transocean, did not fully comply with BP's standards.

The report says that seven months ahead of the April explosion, auditors found 390 maintenance tasks that were more than a month overdue on the rig. These included maintenance work on parts of the blowout preventer, the safety device atop the well that failed to trigger on the day of the accident.

BP and Transocean, which could both face heavy penalties, have disagreed on who should take responsibility for the spill.

---Additional---

For government lawyers preparing a case against BP, this number could help calculate the maximum civil penalty BP might face for the spill. If BP is not found to have acted with negligence, the penalty would be $1,100 per barrel. About 4.1 million barrels escaped into the gulf, according to the new estimate, so that fine would come to $4.5 billion. If BP is found to have acted with "gross negligence" in the lead-up to the spill, the maximum penalty would be $4,300 a barrel, which would work out to $17.6 billion.

USF Geologists Find Beaches Teeming With Tiny Tar Balls

As researchers from USF’s Coastal Research Laboratory examined miles of beaches of north Florida and Alabama last month, they discovered beaches hit by oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill and then “cleaned” by BP crews were anything but clean.

The sand, on the surface, looked better after crews had passed and was somewhat whiter, the scientists noted. But when University of South Florida beach geologist Ping Wang and researchers from his lab looked closer into the once pristine white quartz sands, they found that after beach-cleaning machines had combed the area, the beach was covered with thousands of tiny tar balls.

Aug 08 09:47

Beach beauty is skin-deep

Just because the oil was cleaned up from the beaches doesn't mean it's gone.

The opposite is true, a University of South Florida professor says. In fact, he estimates cleanup work along Panhandle beaches and elsewhere across the Gulf Coast has removed only about 25 percent of the oil that has stained the shorelines.

"Twenty-five percent is pretty generous,'' said Ping Wang, an associate professor of geology at USF. "I stand behind my numbers.''

US agency rules out health threat from oil dispersants

Dispersants used to break up crude leaking from a ruptured Gulf of Mexico oil well are not likely to accumulate in seafood and affect humans, the US Food and Drug Administration said.

In a letter released Friday addressing concerns raised by a US lawmaker, the regulatory body said it was highly unlikely that the chemicals used to break up spilled crude into small particles would enter the food chain.

The "FDA has determined that the chemical dispersant currently used to combat the Deepwater Horizon... have a low potential for bioconcentration in seafood species," the agency said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What I would like to see, on live television, is for Dr. Margaret Hamburg, the head of the FDA, eat freshly caught fish from the Gulf along with her closest family members. Of course, that will happen when pigs fly.

As reported on 5 June 2010 in;

http://blog.alexanderhiggins.com/2010/06/05/amount-neurotoxin-pesticide-corexit-sprayed-bp-tops-1-million-gallons/

"what most people don’t know is that the active ingredient of the toxic chemical dispersant, which is up to 60% by volume, being sprayed by BP to fight the Gulf oil spill is a neurotoxin pesticide that is acutely toxic to both human and aquatic life, causes cancer, causes damage to internal organs such as the liver and kidneys simply by absorbing it through the skin and may cause reproductive side effects.

In fact the neurotoxin pesticide that is lethal to 50% of life in concentrations as little as 2.6 parts per million has been banned for use in the UK since 1998 because it failed the UK “Rocky shore test” which assures that the dispersant does not cause a “significant deleterious ecological change” – or to put that in layman’s terms it can kill off the entire food chain.

Corexit has also earned the highest EPA warning label for toxicity which means the effects of the toxic chemicals to the eye are corrosive resulting in irreversible destruction of ocular tissue and other tissue with corneal involvement along with an burning that can persist for more than 21 days and effects to human skin are corrosive resulting in tissue destruction into the dermis and/or scarring.

Corexit was widely used after the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill and according to a literature review performed by the group the Alaska Community Action on Toxics was later linked with widespread long lasting health impacts in people including respiratory, nervous system, liver, kidney and blood disorders.

The “Human Health Hazards” are said to be “Chronic” for Corexit EC9527A according to the EPA."

BP oil spill: Obama administration's scientists admit alarm over chemicals

The Obama administration is facing internal dissent from its scientists for approving the use of huge quantities of chemical dispersants to tackle the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the Guardian has learned.

The US Environmental Protection Agency has come under attack in Congress and from independent scientists for allowing BP to spray almost 2m gallons of the dispersant Corexit on to the slick and, even more controversially, into the leak site 5,000ft below the sea. Now it emerges that EPA's own experts have been raising similar concerns within the agency.

An AUTOPSY of the BP Gulf Oil Well at the Macondo Prospect

Many have been asking about the current state of the previously gushing BP Oil Well at the Macondo Prospect in the Gulf of Mexico. The following questions have been coming fast and furiously since the well was capped.

Is it still leaking at the wellhead? Has the wellhead been pierced? Are there other wells leaking in the region?

Are there methane seeps in the area around the well? Are there other leaks in the area coming from this well?

Has the well been breached? Is it beyond repair? How deep are the leaks and breaches?

Has the well-casing been compromised? Has the well-bore lost its integrity? Did the methane explosion undermine the foundation of the wellhead?

Is BP considering a nuclear option?! Are the relief wells about this? If so, what are the potential consequences should BP execute such a plan?

What is the purpose of the upcoming top kill operation by BP, and will it work? What is the likelihood of success of the relief wells?

What are the prospects of this well ever being permanently sealed? Should BP have ever drilled this well in the first place? Why has so much gone wrong with the entire process of drilling, and then capping this seemingly untamable oil gusher?

BP: We might drill again in disaster zone

BP PLC said Friday it might someday drill again into the same lucrative undersea pocket of oil that spilled millions of gallons of crude, wrecked livelihoods and fouled beaches along the Gulf of Mexico.

"There's lots of oil and gas here," Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said at a news briefing. "We're going to have to think about what to do with that at some point."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but has this gentleman just gone barking mad?!?!?

And what guarantee does the US public, and particularly those in the Gulf whose lives, livelihoods, and health has been destroyed, that BP isn't going to cause another catastrophe here?!?

BP Fires 10,000 Cleanup Workers

On July 13, the Deepwater Horizon Joint Command was reporting 46,000 responders. On July 23, it was down to 30,000, and the numbers have hovered around the low 30s since. Included in this tally are some Coast Guard and National Guard staff, but BP and subcontractors comprise the vast majority. (I've been trying to get the exact breakdown from the Coast Guard for four days, but to no avail, and BP said it didn't have it on hand, though the Coast Guard has told me it just reports BP's numbers.) In Grand Isle, Louisiana, cleanup workers (none of whom can be named; you know this drill by now) say their coworkers were either told to go home for Tropical Storm Bonnie and then never called back or fired in a massive and sudden drug test.

"Friday, the day before Bonnie, they sent a bunch of people home until further notice, and a lot of people didn't get the further notice," one supervisor told me. "Then last week, they shut the whole [cleanup operation] down. It was 'Piss in a cup or throw your ID in the bucket.' This was a BP drug test, not a [subcontracting] company drug test. It's the first time BP tested us."

Whistleblower: BP used dispersants to hide oil

For quite some time, many bloggers and journalists following the BP-Corexit story, including me, have made the allegation that BP may have been experimenting by dumping over a million gallons of toxic dispersants into the ocean because they were desperately trying to prevent the oil from hitting the beaches.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The use of Corexit as a "fix" for oil spills has been banned in almost every other country but the US.

The horrendous effect of this catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf, and its aftermath, will continue for generations. If you don't believe me, ask the people of Prince William Sound in Alaska.

BP Well Is Still Leaking Underground

By now, I have enough experience of this oil spill (Gawd help me)
to have an instinct that BP(and others) have been scamming us hard
over the course of the last couple of weeks.

I pointed out that the low sub-7,000psi pressure reading when they
capped the well was far below the projected, expected 8,500psi+.
And that it meant the well was likely leaking underground.

I think it's been leaking far enough down hole to not pose a risk of an
imminent sea floor blowout. And so they decided to handle the well
in two sections: above the underground leak and below the leak.

So they just handled the top section with the static kill and cement.

And that bottom section is still leaking.

BP Disaster: Russian Expert, Oil from 18 different sources

BP Disaster: Russia’s Take
27.07.2010 Source: Pravda.Ru
Anatoly Sagalevich has added his voice to the latest controversy over the BP ecological catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico. This expert from the Russian Academy of Science was called to the Gulf by BP shortly after the Deepwater Horizon rig collapsed. And what he has to say is not very reassuring.
Dr. Sagalevich’s report was drawn up and presented to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. ...For Dr. Sagalevich, the oil pouring into the Gulf is not just coming from one source, as the media have been claiming, but fro 18 different places. According to the report, the Russian scientists called by the USA are forbidden to divulge their findings to the media – yet another source backing up the claim that there is a media blackout.

RED ALERT: The Other Well

This shows that BP are lying about having capped the gushing well. I captured this video a couple hours after BP issued a press release claiming that their "static kill" procedure had successfully taken control of the well. Kudos to Youtube user "2010MsBambi" for tipping me off to this -- watch his excellent 4-part video series about this topic at Youtube. But what would take you 40 minutes to hear him explain I can do for you in a fraction of the time.

Obama declares Gulf disaster “coming to an end”

The Obama administration on Wednesday stepped up its efforts to declare the Gulf oil catastrophe at an end.

The public relations campaign, which is based on little scientific evidence, aims to bury the ongoing disaster in advance of the midterm elections, protect BP from further financial damages, and accelerate deep-sea oil drilling operations under the same environment of total deregulation that led to the April 20 blowout at the Deepwater Horizon rig.

75 percent oil from Gulf of Mexico spill is gone: official

About three-quarters of the oil spilled from the ruptured BP well in the Gulf of Mexico has disappeared, a top US official said Wednesday.

"The scientists are telling us about 25 percent was not captured or evaporated or taken care of by mother nature," said Carol Browner, a top energy adviser to President Barack Obama, on the ABC network's "Good Morning America" programme.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the oil has "disappeared"?!?!? Gone where, pray tell?!?!?

Sorry, Ms. Brower, but at this point, everyone in this country understands that the oil hasn't been dissipated by the cleanup efforts,but only pushed to the bottom of the Gulf by the tons of Corexit (a substance banned by most other countries because of its toxicity.)

Now, Ms. Brower, why don't you and your most immediate family eat seafood, harvested and cooked right there in the Gulf, with cameras rolling?!?

Of course, you won't do that, because you understand the enormity of poisons which are still lurking - and will be lurking for a very long time - in the Gulf!

Oil spill dumped 4.9 million barrels into Gulf of Mexico, latest measure shows

The blown-out well in the Gulf of Mexico gushed 12 times faster than the government and BP estimated in the early weeks of the crisis and has spilled a whopping 4.9 million barrels, or 205.8 million gallons, according to a more detailed analysis announced late Monday.

The new figures indicate that the roughly 800,000 barrels of oil that BP managed to capture with its various containment strategies -- a riser insertion tool, a "top hat," and flaring from a surface rig -- represented only about one-sixth of the crude that surged into the gulf over the course of nearly three months. In all, about 1.2 million barrels of oil have been accounted for, either burned, captured or skimmed off the ocean's surface. That's about a quarter of the new estimate for the total spill.

Where the other three-quarters has gone is unclear. Some has evaporated; some has been consumed by microbes; but scientists remain troubled by the possibility that large amounts of oil remain underwater in cloudlike plumes.

For government lawyers preparing a case against BP, this number could help calculate the maximum civil penalty BP might face for the spill. If BP is not found to have acted with negligence, the penalty would be $1,100 per barrel. About 4.1 million barrels escaped into the gulf, according to the new estimate, so that fine would come to $4.5 billion. If BP is found to have acted with "gross negligence" in the lead-up to the spill, the maximum penalty would be $4,300 a barrel, which would work out to $17.6 billion.

House approves oil spill legislation

The bill, passed 209 to 193, would impose new safeguards for offshore drilling, remove a liability cap for spill damages, and hit energy producers with a new tax to fund conservation measures.

In its most sweeping response to the gulf oil spill, the House on Friday approved legislation that would impose new environmental safeguards for offshore drilling, remove a liability cap for spill damages, and slap industry with a new tax to fund conservation projects nationwide.

The measure, which follows dozens of Capitol Hill hearings into the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history, would remove a $75-million liability cap on oil firms for economic damages caused by spills. It would also hit energy producers with a new $2 per barrel tax to fund land purchases for national parks, forests and wildlife refuges.

BP Oil Spill: URGENT UPDATE! Corexit Operations Still In Progress 2 weeks after oil leak supposedly stopped.

Aug 01 14:35

“HUGE discrepancies”: 1.8 million gallons of dispersant “now in question”, “Either BP was lying to Congress or to the Coast Guard”

For example, in one approval request, one of BP’s top executives, Doug Suttles, claimed that the maximum daily application of dispersants on the surface in the days preceding June 16, 2010 was 3,360 gallons on June 12. However, an examination of the dispersant totals BP provided to congressional staff in its daily “Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill Response Updates” indicates that on June 11, BP said it applied 14,305 gallons of the chemical on the surface; on June 13, 36,000 gallons; and on June 14, 10,706 gallons.

According to publicly disclosed amounts on DeepwaterHorizonResponse.com, more than 1.8 million gallons of toxic dispersants were used to break up the oil as it came out of the well, as well as after it reached the ocean surface. The validity of those numbers are now in question.

He further notes that the effects of this stall have also begun to spread to the Gulf Stream. This is because the Loop Current is a crucial element of the Gulf Stream itself and why it is commonly referred to as the “main engine” of the Stream.

Fox News are liars, thieves and BP shills

A young man contacted me about using video footage of mine for a music video about the BP Slick. I gave him permission on a limited basis. The video was completed and posted to You Tube and Fox filed a copyright claim that the video (mine) was fox licensed and therefore not acceptable content. All aerial footage is mine and I can back it up with metadata, flight logs, personal accounts from pilot, coordinator, and the 3 of us in the plane.

Robert has done nothing wrong in using MY video clips and I will back him up in any legal claim he might want to take against Fox, the news shills for BP Slick!
