Questions For BP And The Feds Only The Fish Want Answered

The BP oil blowout disaster killed 11 crew on April 20 and now that it is out of the public mind the questions remain before the final solution of sealing off its base sometime this month is, is the well dead?

Bob Cavnar on his blog The Daily Hurricane says these questions must be answered by BP and the federal government:

  • What is the pressure on the well?  Now?
  • If the well is open to the surface, what is that pressure?
  • What was the pressure during the “static kill”?  Did it change at any time?  What was total volume pumped?
  • What was the pressure during the bullhead cement job?  Did you do the “hesitation squeeze” that Kent Wells mentioned in passing? What was displacement volume?
  • How do you know all the cement went down the casing?
  • What was the pressure on the well after the job?
  • Why is the flex joint flange leaking?
  • Why are the ROV feeds no longer provided in a decipherable resolution?
  • Why are some ROV feeds not being provided?
  • Has the well kicked since the bullhead cement job?
  • What pressure did the bullhead cement job test to?
  • Have you had to pump mud into the well since the bullhead cement job? How much?
  • Why are clouds of debris continuing to obscure the view several days after the well was supposedly “static”?
  • Were the rams of the old BOP opened for the static kill or bullhead cement job?
  • If so, could you tell if the drill pipe fish stuck in the BOP dropped into the well?
  • Can you close the blind shear rams now?
  • What is the damage to the rams in the old BOP?

Until these questions are answered by BP, we have no real information to tell us that the well is dead, or even safe.  As long as they continue to stonewall critical data, I’ll only continue to believe that the well is not “static” or safe.

EPILOGUE

Even if these questions are answered, will the American public outside of the affected Gulf states actually give a damn?  I think not. Please prove me wrong.
