Saw this in the Dutch news, I can't find any mention elsewhere. It seems it just keeps getting worse... :bang;


NEW ORLEANS - The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is approximately fourteen times higher than the estimate of BP. Friday claimed that scientists, who by the oil company released video of the leak have been analyzed.
This U.S. media reported.
So far BP and the U.S. Coast Guard reported that approximately 800,000 liters per day from the leak flows.
Scientists estimate the amount, however, roughly 11 million liters per day. Therefore, this oil spill disaster of the Exxon Valdez in 1989 do fade. BP denies the allegations.
BP boss Tony Hayward said Friday that the oil spill also relatively small as to be considered when the rate with the total water volume.
Hate Mail
He further against the British newspaper The Times that he has received hate mail, news about the disaster on TV or in newspapers and shuns him at night not sleeping. The disaster, the group so far has certainly cost 450 million euros.
Meanwhile, the first whistleblower has made itself heard. A man who years worked for on drilling by BP in Alaska, in U.S. media said that at least one hundred once saw heeft how messed been in testing with the blow-out preventer, the source had moeten afsluiten several hours before an explosion on the oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico took place.
Inquiry
Also, a federal inquiry indicated that the blow-out preventer shortly before the explosion on April 20 unconscious not by a test has come.
Also there was a leak in the hydraulic system and would be crucial methane and other gases in the source may have to walk through a fracture.
Meanwhile, BP is trying a sort of dome over the puncture sites to stop the oil flow. U.S. President Barack Obama meets with top advisers about the next step to combat oil spill.

Cornbread , no doubt the magnitude was covered up , it all seems rather suspicious .
If this was an accident or intentional the PTB will use this to their advantage to accelerate the US implosion .
Barry used his powers of national security to make sure the media would comply , but the truth will rise to the surface like the oil.
The fact this happened on Earth day tells me it was intentional and someone is giving us a big middle finger.

It's BS that they can't calculate the flow. I'm a petrleum engineer by trade and there is a pretty simple formula for these kinds of things (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darcy%27s_law). Basically if you have the pressure differen and flow area you can get the flow rate. The pessure diffrence can generally be approximated by taking a rough hydraulic head (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydraulic_head).

Keep in mind that 5 feet is the surface opening but in the bottom of the well the flow area is a 4-5 inch hole. If the casing failed then the whole wellbore face can be permeable/flowing over the prodcing zone. The zone can be hundreds of metres in height.

5000bbl of oil a day is a pretty poor performing well too that would be generally found only 2000metres or so down but this is 6000metres down. If i had to put a figure on it I would definitelysay it is at least 40,000bbl of OIL per day (gut feel and no calculations done). There is also a whole bunch of water and gas flowing as well. BP was also talking a few years ago (at least the rumor was passing around the class rooms at uni) that they found a 4 billion barrel reservoir (Not the same looking at map they provide but gives good figures http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/09/02/AR2009090203560.html) ultra deep in the Gulf. I'm kind of suspicious this could be THAT reservoir.


I didn't cover a lot cause it can get tech-y. Don't hesitate to ask questions.

Really interesting first post. Welcome! :flop:

Thanks for your post.
I read somewhere that the influence of this field reaches as far as California (underground) and other states, can you confirm that.
Further, the pressure in the field is (to me) extreme high, if the leak is not stopped this pressure will fall (I assume), while the pressure of the water column remains about 170 bar.
Could that cause an earthquake and could that again have an effect in for instance California?
