This is going to cost big, and is costing the world a lot of life.the longer we fail to solve this.
The First Question is HOW do we fix this. Yes ,I said we this is not the time for blaming,pointing fingers.
The long term impact of this could impact the world food balance.
WE need the best Now!
How do we go 5000 ft down. and tap a well. that is exerting more pressure than a mile of water above it..
There are few subs that can go down that far.
Even less that can go that depth and have basic arms/claws with the propulsion and strength needed to move the heavy equipment need to cap this.
The turbulence of the oil flowing out well is going to be incredible.keeping one on station ;dangerous to say the least.
I think the chance of using a sub or other is slim to none.
not knowing how twisted the drilling pipes are that adds a new complexity to
Could the drill pipe be blow-en with explosives, flush to bottom .
that could provide more options as filling with dredge the hole. and/or large rubble.
Could the dredging be mixed with cement. or other as a binder-fill.
then again it could make it worse by letting out more before it possible for the ground to it to settle and be capped.
If we are lucky there is a undamaged section of drill pipe under the leak it to the ground.
But then we are still in the same problem of how to get there. And do the job.
This is a nightmare. Dam the cost. This needs the best the world has. before the food supply in this and neighboring regions are destroyed for generations ahead.
How long depends on the talent ,commitment, and some luck.
Just get it done right the first time .
There well be plenty of time after this to send the bill.
