    Enigineer's view

    there will be no pressue differential, there will be water in the scafle with oil moving through due to the lower specific gravity, that is why the scafle has to be 8 feet or larger in diameter, on top of the scafle oil will overflow into ocean if not pumped out. You are basicly creating a side walk for oil to travel to the surface without getting into the ocean.
