LIVE BP Feed of Oil Leak in Gulf of Mexico

Multiple BP LIVE Video Feeds Below...

August 4, 2010 -- GOOD NEWS! BP almost has plugged the oil leak. Now for the massive clean-up...

Day 90 BP Gulf Oil Leak -
July 18, 2010
BP's new containment cap "appears" to be working, which is great. But it is still too early to 100% say with details like this from the Coast Guard and the oil giant on the process; "that would mean oil would have to be released back into the Gulf for three days to release pressure from the well, Suttles said. The oil giant hopes to instead keep the oil shut in until its permanent measure is completed, although Suttles said BP was taking it day by day."

July 10, 2010 -Now here is finally some good news from the Deepwater BP oil leak: "BP oil leak could be completely contained as early as Monday if a new, tighter cap can be fitted over the blown-out well, feds say..." Let's hope so.

June 20- wonder how the BP oil leak is looking on the surface by where the Deepwater Horizon rig was? Terrible. See - Aerial photos of the oil slick

June 16 Leak and Spill Update - BP agrees to $20 billion dollar fund for Gulf aid with president Obama -details still sketchy, as oil plumes away from the leaking BOP still...

June 13 Update. Damage below seabed in the well bore? And - Focus on damage control from BP and Whithouse.

June 11 oil spill update-
New estimate: Up to 40,000 barrels a day was coming from BP well (CNN) So, I guess the 120,000 barrel a day estimate mentioned below is more correct than not, the way it is moving...

BP to Burn Oil on Gulf Surface! In part it reads, "Once on board, the oil and gas collected from the well would be sent down a boom and burned at sea." They claim to hope to ignite and bake some 420,000 of crude oil on a daily basis! Hmmm. Well, I guess better than letting it float in the water and wash up on shore, but still sounds strange to dangerous to me.

The current, although leaking badly, funnel cap, is trapping about 462,000 gallons of leaking crude oil, which is getting better, it would appear, at least on paper. Now, just click on the image below to see what it looks like down by the leaking oil well... If that is 50% of what is leaking then we have still 100% a major problem (Video of Leaking oil around Containment cap). They are now also reporting that BP will replace the current cap, with a new, tighter fitting containment cap in a month. (Yet again another risky attempt with ROV's thousands of feet below on the ocean floor. Nothing more on the scientists report that the wellhead itself, at the seabed was leaking from BP...

BP Containment Cap Making a Difference? (image of leaking BP cap) - You decide.

Coast Guard said today that by July, BP will have this leak to a trickle. Let us hope so. The market makers, on the other hand do not seem to buy it...BP share price on NYSE (New York Stock Exchange) down 50% since oil rig sinking and oil slicks. BP per share price down 14% today, June 9. 2010 at one point alone...

+ Live Ships Map of clean-up efforts-

Almost a week ago now we saw the containment cap lowered onto the cut portion of the riser on the BOP on-top of the BP Deepwater oil well. (Caught use of dispersant chemicals in oil plume on this video.) Yet we can see on the video feeds below that oil is still pouring or billowing out... BOP cutting started almost a week ago now, see archived video of sawing the oil pluming BOP here. Here's he video footage of a few days ago: "Cutting Riser from BOP June 1, 2010 - BP Oil leak containment attempts". This LMRP (picture 1) or better know as the "Lower Marine Package Cap" (picture 2 lowered in Gulf) looks different than the finned top-hat cap they used.

BP now saying that the top kil has not reduced the amount of hydrocarbons (ehh, crude oil, methane and other gasses) being ejected into the Gulf of Mexico. Thus here are the next steps:

"In case the top-kill operation fails, engineers are already preparing a containment device called a lower marine riser package cap, or LMRP, Mr. Suttles said. This operation would involve removing a broken drilling pipe that lies atop the blowout preventer and capping the valve with a siphon that would take the oil to the surface.

If that containment attempt fails, Mr. Suttles said, the next step would be to try to place another blow-out preventer atop the broken one. "

This is scary. This is why one would HOPE that the US government is taking IDEAS and CONSIDERATION from ALL other major oil companies around the world! Are they??

Gov't Can't Stop Oil Spill

Government is nearly helpless in stopping oil flowing in the Gulf of Mexico, leaving it up to BP, administration says

Readers on the Godlike Productions forum reported flames from the riser. And sure enough you could see this in the live video feed. Looks like a firs has broke out 5,000 feet below in the BP oil leak! The methane gas could be just concentrated enough to burn right at the end of the pipe and dissipate into the wider flow and sea water, thus not igniting further.

It's burning! OMG that thing is on fire. This can't be good. What do those jerks at BP have to say about this?

Uh-oh. A tropical storm is just not good in the Gulf states region right now. Benzine wind and rain do not mix nicely:
