President Obama was informed of these problems on 13th February, 2010.
Over the following weeks, senior BP executives Tony Hayward, Byron
E Grote, Andy Iglis and Ian C Conn sold hundreds of thousands of their
BP shares. All of this was long before the explosion at the second
One interpretation of that share dump is that the problem the Deepwater
Horizon had with the first well in February was very serious and
unresolved -even as the Horizon began drilling the fatal second
It is also possible that wells A and B have oil flowing
from one to the other. After all, they are separated by only 300 feet.
As of 9th August, 2010, ROV footage shows increasing
seepage of hydrocarbons from the Mocando 252 block sea floor.
This comes despite a topside 'static kill' of the well by mud and
cement. Coast Guard response team Leader Thad Allen has
admitted that 40% of the cement injected to stop the oil escaped
into the surrounding sea floor sediments.
This incredible video shows two different wells,
in two different locations, both spewing oil. And this
is not video posted on a shady web site but news footage
broadcast by the English-language Russian TV network RT.
They didn't realize what the video was showing, switching
back and forth between two different geographic locations
[while] reporting on May 30 that "top kill" had failed.
Watch the video, see still shots [of] the two different
sets of coordinates, and look at BP's own exploration
plan filed with the government showing the two distinct
locations matching the ROVs' displays.
I had been displaying
an article by geohazard consultant, BK Lim.
But I put some questions to him and got poor response.

the area. It seems to show two
seperate tall columns of oil.
