BP continues to dazzle us with their unlimited magic
Update on BP Rigs location & Fault Connection – 10 Nov 2010
- BK Lim
10 Nov 2010.
Figure 134-1 shows the satellite image with the location of the four drilling rigs at the Macondo Site. West Sirius moved out on the morning of 2 Nov 2010 to park at the edge of the Mississippi Canyon, south of Grande Isle. But the position track for the last week, after our articles on the mysteries of the “flying drilling rigs” were out, had been anomalous. West Sirius has been flying all over the place as shown in figure 134-2. The position has been obtained from http://www.marinetraffic.com. Perhaps this website, which receives the vessel update information from BP, is not aware of the position discrepancies.
So, just as the BP’s ROVs can “magic marine travel” by flying all over the place, from the Macondo site to the Atlantis site (240 km distance), BP has also come out with the “same advanced technology” of transporting the massive drilling rigs weighing over 20,000 tons over thousands of km within seconds. BP is truly now way beyond petroleum. This travel and transport at the speed of BP’s imagination is clearly evidence of the game of mass deception which BP has played with the public since the early days of this catatrophe.
So now, we have to take the position of the “flying drilling rigs” with a pinch of salt. Occasionally, we are able to acquire a reasonable position. How do we verify the rig position? Well, we cannot tell at the moment, but let’s just say there are enough people with conscience to feed us.
The updates on 10 Nov 2010 tell us a scary picture. BP appears to have abandoned the triple wells location (Well A, Well B and S20BC) completely. Discoverer Enterprise (DE) is still working at a location that it has been sitting on for the last 2 months. Notice the red line passing thru this location to the triple well location. That is the deep major NW-SE strike-slip fault we had been talking about for the last 3 months or so.
Development Driller 2 (DD2) has moved from Well A location, after removing the expensive BOP and replacing it with a memorial cap – In Memory of the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) and the 11 personnel killed there. This is a new location after DD2 had flown thousands of miles (twice) to the South Pacific. Simply amazing this new transport technology BP has. We do not know what DD2 is doing or even if this location is accurate. We just have to take BP’s word for it (tongue in cheek).
DD3 is still around the location it was sitting at since moving from Relief Well C in mid Sept.
It is scary to note that the three rigs positions are 6.3 miles (DD3), 7.4 miles (DE) and 8.8 miles (DD2) from well A. DD3 and DE are both at the toe of the shelf slope (escarpment), while DD2 is on the mid-slope. So was the late Matt Simmons right about the massive leaks 7 miles from the blown out well on 20 April 2010? It would not be surprising to have oil and gas leaking out here at the toe of these huge escarpments, which are many times larger than the escarpment at the Macondo well location. Is the 22 Mile River of Oil 5-7 Miles Sw Of Well A as reported by WHOI associated with the leak from BP’s broken oil reservoir?
Scientists from WHOI, along with the Coast Guard and other institutions, used an array of high-tech gadgets — including an autonomous unmanned vehicle (AUV) named the Sentry—along with mass spectrometers, to find and track the plume.
Dr. Richard Camilli of WHOI had this to say: “We’ve shown conclusively, not only that a plume exists, but also defined its origin and near-field structure.”
That certainly runs counter to most of the reports we’ve seen so far.
Dr.Samantha Joye a marine science professor at the University of Georgia, told The New York Times: “The idea that 75% of the oil is gone and is of no further concern to the environment is just incorrect.”
For now, we don’t know if more plumes are lurking out there. The ocean currents at these depths are still somewhat of a mystery, even to scientists who study them for a living.

Many bloggers had reported that skimmer-vessels had been busy there in the last few months and the Coast Guard had noted in their logs that an Orange Spill was noted on 22 April 2010 on the day of the second explosion which brought the DWH down. It gets even scarier if you follow the fault line 56 miles NW from well A and the “giant gas bubble” noted by the Coast Guard on their return (to base) hours after the 22 April 2nd explosion. Follow the adjacent NW-SE fault line another 158 miles 316º NW you get to the epicentre of the 2 Aug earthquake, magnitude 3 on the Richter scale. See figure 134-3.
Are all these “oil events” and the earthquake connected to the Macondo broken reservoir unleashed by the 20 and 22 April 2010 blowouts? Looking at figure 134-4 it would be hard to dismiss the connection. These ancient deep-seated faults beneath the Quaternary Sediment are believed to have been formed when the Gulf of Mexico was tectonically active. The fractured underlying geology as confirmed by Dr. Bea in his Interview With The Georgewashington2.Blogspot.Com could be the main reason why BP’s broken Macondo reservoir was so difficult to patch up.
