Thad Allen Extends BP Cap Test Another 24 Hours

You have to have paid attention very carefully these last 88 days and remember everything about the day-to-day situation in the Gulf to parse this article. I'll attempt to do that for you. Before closing the valves on Top Hat 10, BP told the media and the Coast Guard that the pressure reading should be at least 7,500psi once the cap's valves were all moved to the closed position. They were hoping for a reading in the range of 8,000-9,000psi. Any lower than 7,500 and they said that this would indicate that additional leaks were present at unknown locations.

According to BP, reading is 6,745. So, to cover up for the fact that their own reading, taken in context of what they laid out for the media before closing the valves, indicates that additional leaks indeed are continuing to allow oil out, they made up a theory out of whole cloth. They now saw that the reading is so low because so much oil was let out of the well that there simply isn't enough left down there to cause the higher pressure readings that they were "hoping" for.

You have to have a very good memory indeed to sift through the lies and obfuscation. You have to remember the geologists calculations from a couple of weeks ago that 97-98% of the oil and methane was still trapped in that giant pocket below the ocean floor. So if only 2% of the total mass had leaked out in the first 70-odd days, how could so much more have escaped in the next two weeks to throw BP's figures on what the pressure should be off so much? It doesn't make sense if you listen to their corporate lies.

I'll tell you what is happening. Lindsey Williams' inside sources told him that the actual pressure when BP first tapped into that enormous oil stratum was in the tens of thousands of pounds per square inch. That is one of many things that BP is hiding from the public. The reason why the pressure currently is five times or so lower now than it was when Deepwater Horizon was blown up is because of the natural vents formed as that initial, gargantuan pressure down below the seabed forced its way through the weaker parts of the rock and up into the open water. In addition, as I've written for weeks, the same sources confirmed that the well casing itself is shattered and that there are likely even more leaks from the well itself below the surface, where the ROVs cannot travel and observe.

This is why the pressure is many times lower than when the rig was blown up on Hitler's and Stalin's birthday, on Earth Day, pothead day, April 20. If BP were truthful about the initial pressure it would be obvious to anyone that there necessarily have to be more than just the one point of oil escape, the only one they've shown us, the circus show with the ROVs parked at the one leak point at the wellhead. Even with that remarkable geyser spewing for 86 days, there is no way that even just 2% of the total contents could have escaped if we were talking about just from that one spot.

Remember that the estimates are that there are a couple trillion gallons of oil down below, and several trillion cubic feet of methane. The government's worst-case estimate, or at least what they're telling the media, is that up to 184 million gallons of oil may have escaped, their low figure being 94 million. Let's not talk about the methane, more of which was escaping from the well than oil. Let's simply use a figure of a total of 2 trillion gallons of oil in that cavern. If you take the "worst case" public estimate, that means that only 0.000092% of the total oil got out from the wellhead.

So how do you reconcile the estimates of 98% still being trapped with 0.000092% having escaped from the spot the ROVs have been monitoring? Because of all the other leaks that I've been telling you are there, that's how. The ones that neither BP nor the government admit exist, and that they would never show the public even if they could, because the additional leaks in the well itself are underground, and the naturally formed vents on the ocean floor are scattered at random locations wherever the rock was weakest, within a radius of at least 20 miles from the Deepwater Horizon site, according to NOAA satellite images.

Far more oil has escaped than we've been told, and now that BP is showing us pictures of clean water around their newest Top Hat, everyone thinks we're past the containment phase and entering the cleanup phase. I do not believe this to be the case. If I'm right, a whole lot of oil is still leaking out in these other places, and it will continue to do so until the pressure in the petroleum pocket equalizes with that of the near mile of water sitting on top of it. Luckily, that weight of water will mean that not all of the oil will get out, assuming that the sea floor stays as intact as it is, with only those small, natural vents here and there.

It appears, again assuming that nothing strange happens in these additional 24 hours that Thad Allen has ordered for pressure monitoring, that the seabed will hold, and that we will simply be told that the crisis is over, and that Soetoro is creating jobs by hiring out of work Gulf Coast residents to clean up the beaches and the water. But those natural vents will continue venting, and I have no idea at what rate compared to that of the wellhead before it was finally capped. BP and the government don't have exact figures, just secret estimates, because they can't possibly have employed enough ROVs to map over 1250 square miles of ocean (the amount in a circle of 20 miles' radius). The vents are probably very small and each probably does not let out a fraction of what was coming from the wellhead, but there are likely at least dozens, and probably hundreds or more of them.

And since each is small and their output possibly not even visible with our best satellites, BP and the government will be able to convince the public that no more oil is entering the Gulf, that Barry is your new American hero, and that everything is all rainbows and unicorns again in those five states. But the Gulf has already been dealt a near death blow, and it will continue to be poisoned for years to come from these smaller, secondary leaks. Remember that BP said that if it couldn't cap the wellhead, the oil could flow for years, and that was at the incredible admitted rate of over one million gallons per day. And also remember that I've disregarded the methane for the purpose of this discussion, which is present in even greater volume than the oil. So if the flow could continue for years from the wellhead, it might continue for decades, or possibly a could of centuries from the natural vents.

Remember when I wrote about the three possibilities going forward, just a few days back, and picked "silent kill" as my bet for the most likely to be chosen? I believe I was correct. The globalists have given the Gulf an acute disease with their terror operation and the giant flows of oil that have only begun to wash ashore. But they also managed to give it a chronic ailment with the slower, hidden leakage that will continue pouring oil, methane and toxins into the water for who knows how long. Hopefully BP will stop dumping Corexit, but it wouldn't surprise me if they continue that in secret. Let's all just cross our fingers and hope that Thad Allen's extra 24 hours are a true precaution and not a warning sign that the cap may be not be secure after all...


  1. Richard Hoagland also believes this to be true. NOAA also believes this to be true. It's scary. Especially when you think back about how the Gulf of Mexico was formed millions of years ago. Meteor, asteroid or comet hit there shattering the earth crust making it thin and weak and crumbly. Factor in the salt dome and you've got a Really Really Really big problem.
