How can I stop a large oil well from leaking?
So there's this offshore oil rig here, and it won't stop leaking. Anyone have any suggestions?
Already tried putting a pipe on it, didn't work. And tried clogging it up with tires and golf balls, didn't work.
Now trying to pump fluids and heavy mud into it to stop the flow, but no idea if that will work.
Any suggestions are welcome as this is becoming a major problem.
Please call: (281) 366-5511 if you have a good suggestion.
I don't have a picture, but I do have a webcam.
If we can figure out how to stop this thing we'll all be famous, so any ideas?
Pumping mud into it didn't work, now trying to put another tube on it?
now trying to put a THIRD dome over it...
Okay new complication, a ^^*# robot that was supposed to be sawing off a pipe is stuck in there now.
So now a key pipe has been cut, hopefully this makes things easier
So now there are some giant underwater plumes appearing, some as large as Rhode Island.
Any ideas on how to clear those up?
