Oil / gas void size is unknown. Same area as asteroid hit millions years back.
2000 psi H20 press at sea floor PLUS weight of 13,000 feet of mud/rock over oil dome
iraydindarr,If you are referring to my post,yes I did buy Jan.2011 puts,but that doesn't mean I don,t care about the environment.
With 5 Grandchildren,I want to stop this disaster as soon as any one.
One can be an investor,as well as an evironmentalist.
Perhaps that is not in your relm
twentythous,Wow,thank you for your rational support!!
I'm not a college educated person,but have been trained on many Missle,and aircraft fuel control systems,to know some things about pressures and flows.
Thanks,again for listening,and supporting my ideas.
It is not shooting out like a fire hose,or geyser.You wouldn't be able to see the boiling action,if the pressure differintial was that high.(100,000 PSI)
Ask any Hyd. engineer what that flow stream would look like,even at 5000 PSI DELTA.
Bunky, you are trying to have a rational conversation with a bunch of idiots who are not capable of rational thought. Of course you are correct. There is clearly less flow at the top hat. A review of video I captured on Monday and this morning clearly shows more of the "legs" visible - several inches more. Clearly, they can retrieve more through the BOP and the manifold that they have been attaching to this past week. There's a good chance that by next Friday, the amount leaking will be very small. Thanks, Bunky, for trying.
