The Worst Case Scenario Unfolding – by Guest

“Abhorred monster! Fiend that thou art! The tortures of hell are too mild a vengeance for thy crimes. Wretched devil! You reproach me with your creation, come on, then, that I may extinguish the spark which I so negligently bestowed.”            – Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, ‘Frankenstein’

Our Worst Case Scenario is Unfolding

The following comes from a fortune 50 executive level consultant who happened to employed at a Global Environmental Group. He also ended up being responsible for that group’s Oil Spill update delivered weekly via nationwide conference call during the first stage of the Macondo Well Failure.

The BP blow-out with a seafloor fissure sending methane below Bayou Corne scenario is true.
BP disaster court documents show BP had 3 wells (not one) that had a big problem resulting in what is called the Macondo blow-out. The event affected frozen methane under the Gulf of Mexico. When hot (BP) oil met frozen (solid) methane it turned it to a methane gas that became self-fracking.

THESE ARE NOT PAST EVENTS.. They are ongoing…The BP Blow-out severely damaged an already fractured site. While capped the casing was lost and as a result hot oil is meeting frozen methane and in combination they are self fracking their way along the salt formation leading up to Bayou Corne.
In other words, the BP accident leaked now hot oil and it seeped up hitting the frozen methane and it exploded. BP’s big secret is they had 3 shady well points (not one) that they got using illegal submersibles. The rule is they have to use a fixed rig to get the oil and they were cheating with the other system. They had a ‘loss of control’  well problem 2 days before the ‘big event’ and when it occurred they improperly sealed it. Also the Earth’s crust is thinnest there and BP wasn’t supposed to be drilling around that fragile spot.
They cannot stop the methane monster.
This scenario was only used to motivate staff as, at the time, it was too radical to be supported by the evidence avbailable. Recent court documents, however, change that.

During the early days of the oil spill we were shocked as we researched what had happened. Not only did it appear that the well should never have been permitted in that location (fragile geology, too close to the Gulf Salt Formation) it was a location that left NO margin of error. As we learned more we were shocked. On top of a difficult well location there were multiple signs of wellhead problems. So many that  the conboard crew called El Mocando, “El Diablo”.   On top of that there were far too many shortcuts, Alone they might have been seemingly little decisions. Collectively they eroded what margin was left and doomed Transocean. It was as if no one was looking at the big picture leading up to the “failure event”. How????
Before we had a chance to breath and dig further it became apparent that a casing failure was looming.

Failure to cap the well intact would precipitate their doomsday scenario.   Among other items this scenario included: Bubbling Bayous, exploding oil rigs. . .  all leading to: Salt dome failures. Fortunately before we could look any further the Macondo well was sealed…..or so we thought.

According to the source:

As far as we know, the Earth’s crust is thinnest in the Gulf Region. Meaning BP should have never gotten that permit. Especially so close to the Gulf Salt formation as it would amplify any well failure.

Any loss of control might lead to failure of the well casing.  It would mean even if the well were capped it would forever seep very hot oil through the fissures that existed naturally and those created by drilling and subsequent shocks during wellhead failure. The hot oil would soon meet small pockets or balls of frozen methane below the sea floor and frack its way to the surface. Not to the Gulf however…..

RECENT COURT DOCUMENTS REVEAL:

    • BP had 3 wells (not one).
    • The TV well was capped casing intact
    • It was the smallest “leak”
    • The other two wells both lost their casings
    • One of those was the primary source of the oil

It appears they were capped.  However, short of a nuclear device (proven by the Soviets but not an option in the Gulf. You see, this crust is…. ONE mile from magma) it cannot be stopped.

Therefore, ….. what do you think?

WHAT THE HELL DID THEY PUT DOWN THERE BEFORE DEEPWATER EXPLODED?

The giant-sized caverns for storing natural gas and other things are not allowed anywhere else in the world.  For safety, they don’t allow so much gas to be pumped into one spot.

With the BP disaster they released a large amount of highly active, genetically modified (GM) bacteria to “eat” the oil. That has been widely reported. What is not reported is this GM bacteria they released doesn’t eat all of the oil. It is a “sour component” eater and it leaves the rest. The side-effect of this is it increases pressure in low performing wells.
Except this bacteria went off on its own, ignoring the chaff and going for refined oil. It likes it and seeks it. And it is playing havoc with well pressure.
Oil rigs are punching into methane gas (not frozen methane) in substrata in the Gulf.
The methane under Lake FUBAR is coming up from the Macondo site.
There is a loss of casing at 2 of 3 wells at the BP disaster site. There is NO solution for it.
They might have used mini-nukes to blast it and fuse the rock. They have to hold off on that idea because the crust is too thin there. They cracked open “Dante’s Gate”.
The Dept. of Homeland Security and many big US agencies are addressing the problem and these same entities know all about Bayou Corne and its connection to the BP disaster.
The build up of berms around Lake FUBAR isn’t to protect the Bayou or aquifer from pollution. It is to keep fresh water out of the caverns that are now compromised.
Back at the BP disaster – the rig’s ‘A’ team wasn’t on the rig when it blew. The ‘B’ team of workers was. The ‘A’ team knew it was unsafe and wouldn’t work there. Things below were giving signals the rig was unsafe. The rig was “kicking” (moving, shuddering). Many senior rig handlers wouldn’t work on Macondo.
BP did questionable things. To stop leaking gas they use a very dense drilling fluid that is costly. BP removed it at Macondo and pumped in water with an untested cement “fill”.
Remember those rigs that blew in July in the Gulf of Mexico? Since Macondo blew the hydrolic rams don’t work on the other rigs. They can’t work because pressurized methane is coming up.
The Gulf is full of this injected GM bacteria that doesn’t eat the oil, just components of the oil and that is causing pressure spikes in the Gulf oil fields. Refined oil products are like candy for the new GM bacteria. It zooms over to them, not sticking around where the Frankensteins thought it would piddle around doing their task.  The highly active GM bacteria is making oil come up elsewhere. It is also creating pressure. Coupled with new released methane a big disaster looms.
It can set off the New Madrid Fault.
This accounts for the total media black-out surrounding larger issues around the Bayou Corne salt dome collapse.

Some ‘Worst Case’ Projections from Oil Co.s

Louisiana demanded reports from related oil companies relating the the sinkhole earlier.

They fluff it all off as if every toxic component will just evaporate etc. with minimal human impact.

They are here – scroll down to “Bayou Corne/Grand Bayou Monitoring Reports” headline.
