BK Lim et al (first drafted in June 2010, revised 29 Jan 2012)
To keep this article short, we posted these figures earlier at the following links:
(figures 165-0, 165-1b and 165-2 are given in the next posting)
Of all the lies that came out of the Gulf disaster, the most preposterous has been the 3 leaks on the riser story. Figure 165-0a to 165-0c were the first few schematic illustrations of BP’s blowout incident. They were so embarrassingly stupid and logic defying, most experts believed the schematics were deliberately drawn by cartoonists to confuse the average Joe Public. The patchwork of realities resembled a makeshift car hastily assembled from parts of different size vehicles. Obviously a mini car body does not match the oversize truck tires. It is obvious the 5½ inch drill pipe at leak(3) cannot be the same 21inch diameter riser (actually a well casing) at leak(2). Yet the world's technical experts willfully overlooked this fundamental discrepancy and allowed the criminals to get away with murders. And America, the world's greatest nation shouting human rights abuses all over the world, allowed this hideous crime of mass destruction in its own backyard to go unpunished? In China, the corporate criminals responsible for this environmental carnage would have been executed instead of having their lives back. Can the 11 dead crewmen, their young families and thousands of Gulf victims who suffered numerous medical problems from the toxic contaminated Gulf waters and corexit sprayed on them, ever have their lives back?
Surely the world's most technologically advanced country could not have been so easily fooled by this “3 wells & 3 leaks on a single riser” fairy tale (concocted Beyond Phantasm). Besides the many controversial circumstances surrounding the sinking of the burning rig (DWH) and the sudden breaking of the super-strong riser in calm water, how could a third open-ended leak (3) be even possible beyond the completely severed riser at the second leak (2)? See fig165-0c. Leak(2) has to be the blown crater of well no.#3 as illustrated in many of our previous articles and irrefutably shown in Figure 165-5 with the right coordinates in the few undoctored videos.
“When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” S Homes.
Since June 2010, we have illustrated many physics of impossibilities concocted by BP. Two years later, it seems the world has not awaken from its ignorantly blissful slumber. This disaster is more than just a disastrous mega oil spill. If the world's foremost scientists and investigators cannot figure out the many fundamental flaws in the simple “3 leaks-3 wells” fairy tale, how can there be any hope of ever solving problems beyond kindergarten level? Forget the carbon tax, the ban on hazardous gas emission and just about any anti-pollution measures designed to improve the global environment. All these schemes have sinister undertones with profiting on mass miseries of others.
In the Gulf disaster, you have the biggest environmental polluter in human history. The punishment for a crime of mass destruction that could have been averted, was just a slap on the wrist? If this is not the clearest proof of corruption at the highest level and biggest HSE (health, safety & environment) farce, then what is?
It is clear the current political leaders had not been up to mark in dealing with this disaster. If their blinkered leadership cannot see beyond the deception in the Gulf, the only place they are are capable of leading to, is Hell. Do the American people really want to be sheepishly led down this road to hell? And world leaders follows obediently in tow.
If we do not wake up and smell the Corexit now, pretty soon there would not be a planet to save at all.
It was not the failure of safety regulations but the enforcement of regulations. The government admitted this much by sacking MMS's director and changing it to BOEMRE. It was not the failure of technology but the devious use of technology to cloak unfair business practices or safety farce at the very least. But would shrewd corporate criminals risk billions of investment dollars just to skimp on some daily operation expenses and safety devices? Just like the fairy tale of the 3 leaks, this was just the red herring. The oil industry will start on its decline just as the coal industry did, after its replacement by alternative cheaper and cleaner energy sources (The Future of Free Energy).
Giant global oil corporations may not have the next 10 years to recover their mega billion dollar investments. With the writings on the wall and their failures to control (prevent) the advent of free energy, the oil oligarchs had to devise emergency exit schemes before oil independence becomes public knowledge. High crude oil prices cannot be manipulated too high or long enough to recoup their billions of investment dollars globally. They risk becoming economic dinosaurs.
High oil prices depress global economic growth and hence non-sustainable for too long a period. Shallow, low cost production reservoirs are either not under their control or their reserves have already dwindled. The Middle East wars and conflicts are all about the control of cheap oil supplies. At low crude oil prices, they cannot recoup their high investment costs. Huge deep water oil reserves are just market hype. They are just too uneconomical for exploitation. But like the fake 134 billion US dollar bonds and 26 trillion US loans given out by the FED, mega oil spills could be leveraged as MIHOP environmental disasters for quick mega windfalls. More details in later articles.
Figures 165-0 to 165-6 accurately depict how deep down the abyss the oil industry had sank into. How can we pretend that all is well with the oil industry? The 11 crewmen died not because they did not perform their job well. On the contrary, these men plus the previous drilling crew performed exceptionally well. Otherwise they could not have drilled through hell to reach the reservoir at 18,360 ft below sea level. They were on a “suicide mission” without being told that the nightmare well was supposed to blow once they had successfully reached the reservoir. It is time to put the records straight. As Edmund Burke said; “All that is needed for evil to succeed is that decent human beings do nothing”.
The illustration of the 3 infamous leaks on a badly twisted riser, was designed to confuse and to twist public opinion to their advantage. Many experts in the industry wondered at the ludicrous illustration but no one dare to criticize big brother, BP. Below is one muffled, discussion from an astonished experienced driller at Drilling Ahead.
Riser Problems?(http://www.drillingahead.com/forum/topics/transocean deepwater horizon 1#ixzz1k7tHXgvt)
According to the Coast Guard and BP, oil is leaking from two spots along what is left of the riser system. Here's a schematic view: (figure 165-0b) dated 26 April 2010.
Originally, the risers (represented by the blue line in the graphic above) were affixed to the blowout preventer on the seafloor, and extended 5,000 feet straight up to the "moon pool" of the Deepwater Horizon. When the drilling vessel sank, it took the riser piping and bent it around like a pretzel.
The remnants of the riser system now follow a circuitous underwater route. According to BP, the risers extend from the wellhead up through the water column to about 1,500 feet above the seabed. Then the riser system buckles back down toward the seafloor. (Frankly, I'm astonished that it all held together as well as it has. It's a credit to the manufacturer, which I'll discuss below.)
According to the Transocean website, the riser devices on the Deepwater Horizon were manufactured by VetcoGray, a division of General Electric Oil & Gas. The specific designation is a "HMF Class H, 21 inch outside diameter riser; 90 foot long joints with Choke & Kill, and booster and hydraulic supply lines."

Why the pathetic 3 leaks on the broken riser excuse?
If there were really 3 leaks on a single riser, BP could have easily reduced three into one controllable leak at the source by cutting the riser at the top of the blowout preventer (BOP). That was precisely what BP did at the end of May to install the LMRP (Lower Marine Riser Package) cap on 3 June 2010. But why wait for 40 days? Why would BP need to go through the charade of top kill, junk shots, hot hats and all that nonsense? Why wait for 87 days before shutting down the flow at well A on 15 July? Why was there no massive oil spill or gas leaks before 2200z (1700 CDT) 22 April 2010? See the pattern yet?
BP's frauds and deception in the Gulf would have been exposed at the break of the disaster if they had not been so well coordinated and meticulously planned months beforehand. Official coverups could not have withstood the tsunami-force of massive public protests, even with forceful suppression. The pen is mightier than the sword. Deception is more effective in dissipating the focused energy of the masses. Once divided and confused with distorted truths, only can military force be effective in suppressing the sheepish masses to be culled. TPTB have been having lots of target practices in the third world countries and now it is time to use these tactics in their home crowd. Nothing happens by accident. Certainly not the BP's Gulf disaster which had been planned as early as 2007.
The ROV inspections of the wellhead, marine riser and BOP in the immediate aftermath of the incident show that the mega oil spill could have been easily averted with several run-of-the-mill options. It was the sort of controllable rig blowout-fire situation the industry expects and routinely trained for. It could have been recovered safely without ending in a disastrous mega oil spill. James Cameron of the Titanic fame was quoted as saying “US shouldn't be relying on BP's underwater intel. Those morons don't know what they're doing!”. Really? Or was ingenuity behind the cloak of stupidity.
The main reason for the deliberate blunders and delays in the recovery of the blowout and the oil spill, was to intentionally flood the Gulf with massive oil to cause market panic. No massive oil spill means no justification for spraying unprecedented massive amount of COREXIT. Bio-remediation was available and ready to be used. Yet millions of gallons of corexit had been stockpiled weeks before the mega spill occurred and surprisingly on standby to disperse on the first day itself. Yet there are those who still believe there was no vested business connection. The concerted media, political and industry deception onslaught was unmistakably deafening. Stupidity and global domination do not go hand in hand.
The initial gas blowout (20 April 2010) which killed 11 drilling crew on the burning Deepwater Horizon rig, failed to unleash the massive oil spill as PLANNED. A detonated explosion within the well shortly after 2200z (1700 CDT) did. That triggered explosion induced a bottom hole blowout that unleashed the full power of the gushing oil from the Macondo reservoir. Period!
Is it not a federal offense to lie so blatantly to the US Congress and American Public? Or is the system so screwed up, it is fashionable or even brilliant to get away with submitting doctored ROV videos to Congress? For the uninitiated, there were many accounts of BP committing perjury before and after Tony Hayward' congressional testimony. All ROV videos showing the still standing BOP with the Bent Riser (without the gas leak) from the 23 April till mid May 2010, were relooped footage recorded prior to the 22 April explosion shortly after 1700 CDT. Why? Because the BOP was already in pieces scattered over the seafloor after the 22 April bottom-well blowout. Again the doctored videos were deliberately ignored by investigators and mainstream media. Obvious, is it not?
