[Update 10: 29m. ]
The effort to place a huge containment dome on an underwater wellhead spewing in the Gulf of Mexico has been frustrated by the large amount of hydrate --ice-
Like a crystal formed when gas and water combine.
A British oil official said on Saturday that the ship was piled up.
The dome is moved to the side of the wellhead, and it is resting while the crew is trying to overcome the challenge, a process that is expected to take at least two days, said Doug satres, BP's chief operating officer.

CNN's WDSU reports that a camel in North Texas is doing his part to help rescue work by giving up hair on his back.
Steve Berry, the owner of candicahn, is donating her hair so that it can be made into a suction pad or boom to absorb oil in the Gulf of Mexico.
Berry, a retired Arlington fireman and Hood County commissioner, told WDSU that "there is no oil on the camel's hair . ".
"So it's not greasy, it's a perfect absorbent.
"Berry, a member of the South Central Camel Association, made a phone call to other camel owners in the area saying he was willing to have a haircut if needed.
Each camel produces about four to five pounds.
Berry says he will ship all the wool to New Orleans in the state of Luis Anna.

The Deepwater Horizon event Joint Information Center said tar balls of varying sizes were found on the beach on the island of Prince Edward, Alabama on Saturday.
The center said in a press release that it may take 48 hours to analyze the tar balls to determine the source of the oil.
Residents told CNN that tar balls are occasionally found along the Gulf Coast.
Tar balls are collected in pom
The pom-shaped material placed around the island of dau is called the trap boom.

According to data from the joint information center for the Deepwater Horizon event, so far the numbers are:-10,000: the number of deployed personnel currently responding to the conservation of coastlines and wildlife.
-270: in addition to dozens of aircraft, remote-controlled vehicles, vessels responding on site, including slag skimming, tugs, barges and recycling vessels, to assist in containment and cleaning, multiple mobile offshore drilling platforms.
-923,000: approximately a number of boom rods deployed to control the leaking feet. – 2.
1 million: a gallon of oil-
Water mixture that has been recycled.
-290,000: a gallon of dispersing agent has been deployed.
-10: staging sites set up to protect the coastline of countries along the Gulf Coast that may be affected.
The staging site is inbiloxi, Mississippi;
The city of Panama, Florida;

For some fishermen in the state of Luis Anna, Saturday is payday, but the check is not something they take out of the water --
This is what they put into the water.
Parish officials paid fishermen on Saturday morning, working in contaminated waters from May 1-4, where they usually fish and catch shrimp.
They are the first locals hired by BP, which has a core oil well for the oil spill to help clean up the bay.
Many people in the fishing industry have been affected by the oil spill, St.
The parish of Bernard has set up a rotation system for people looking for jobs.
Lucky people will find their names on the work schedule again before the end of the month.
The amount of the check depends on your location
A captain is paid more than just a plate player.
For those who use the vessel, the additional inspection was canceled.
Fisherman Regen says he earns $460 a day as a captain.
He also said he received $500 a day using his boat.
It may sound like a good amount of money for a day's work, but Regen says he can make $3600 a day during the oyster season.
Fisherman Bobby Lovell said he made just enough money to pay for the crab trap from the water.
The trap is located in an area where fishing is now prohibited.
Lovell is very worried about supporting his family, so he plans to go to the dock every day in case extra people are needed.
Lovell thinks he might have some luck finding a spot on the ship tomorrow.
He says his wife may not be happy because it's Mother's Day today, but according to Lovell, that's why he wants to go --
He believes that someone will stay at home.
Okay, do we overlap the obvious?
Try to encapsulate the wellhead with a large enough open pipe.
Place a cut edge in the first section in order to push it into the bottom of the sea until deep enough.
Try to install a giant ball valve in another connection section and then simply close the Vale?
When the oil fills the pipe, the oil fills the pipe, because the oil fills the pipe, and the weight of the oil in the pipe will balance the head pressure and stop the oil leakage.
If this can be done, then a sealant can be introduced into the pipe to seal it.
This method used to work for me in a runaway self-flowing well that destroyed a major highway.
Or someone has already thought of this. Subject: PRO-
Effective contingency plan for oil spill, Date: Monday, May 5, persons who may be involved;
As we know that no one has been listening so far, we will make this statement briefly. 1.
We found a pre-
Processed materials and an action plan has been developed that will extract up to 95% of oil spill contaminants from the Gulf of Mexico surface waters prior to landing. 2.
Our product is a "modified oil spill environment sponge" called M ". O. S. E. S.
, It is a product that can be used to absorb oil contaminants from oil spills on the surface of "fresh water and salt water.
Our test concludes that a ton of products can absorb 125 gallons of oil in less than an hour.
Simply put, it will absorb about half the weight of the oil. M. O. S. E. S.
Collect/absorb oil instead of water.
M after saturationO. S. E. S.
Will only contain about 1. 4% water.
It will not have an additional impact on marine life or the environment.
It also does not pose a threat to other wildlife, including humans.
15 minutes of testing will prove the process. 3.
Our plan is complete, including staging, sowing, re-sowingApplication and re-application
Re-process all contaminated oil and seed materials
Fuel and goods available. 4.
Due to the urgent need to reduce the impact on the environment and the size of this leak, our plan needs to work with the Coast Guard and other organizations that have been used to provide the stage, sowing and recycling operations. 5.
The sowing operation is treated in essentially the same way as it is being done, with minor and/or non-modification of air or aquatic equipment that will deal with the spread of particles. 6. Re-
Claim operations require the same boom, spoon, pump and barge operations as they are in use. 7. Re-
The processing business proposes the establishment of a permanent emissions-free plant to process oil, sand and other similar materials into reprocessing
Fuel and goods available.
The plant will take about 90 to 150 days to build and will be a permanent component of the US's rapid response to future oil spills. 8.
Our plan will get on first-
Conduct damage control operations in the Gulf region;
Second, it could have been put into use within seven days;
Third, it will become $30,000,000.
00 each year brings economic benefits to communities that accept staging and factory processing operations. 9.
This plan will significantly reduce the time and cost associated with this oil spill in the future.
We believe this type of Pro
The activity plan will become a template for other high risks (oceanic)areas.
So why didn't the plan be taken into account at all?
This is not a question of whether another leak will occur, but when.
The only excuse we can come up with is that we are sure you will be here as follows:.
News networks and government agencies don't have time to consider supporting BP.
A positive long-term plan? b.
When the technology is patented and the product can be tested in 15 minutes, "We are all cracked pots "? c.
"BP controlled it as before?
"We think it's crazy to do the same thing over and over again and expect different results!
We need to prepare for the future through these smoke screens.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
We hope to have some constructive comments. Craig N.

The purpose of my writing this letter is to hope that my thoughts can help with efforts to contain the Gulf oil spill.
Although I am not a scientist or engineer in this field.
I was educated in math and electronic engineering, and it's not surprising that my true love is physics, because the idea comes from some basic physical concepts, namely buoyancy.
The component components of this idea come from existing technologies and may be modified by some specific customization.
I don't have any engineering details about the breach.
I can infer how reasonable the parameters are based on 210,000 gals per day.
The first calculation I performed was to convert gals. To cubic feet.
The 210,000 gals is converted to 28000 ft3.
The cube root of 28000 is about 30 feet.
This means that the amount of oil leaked every day fills a cube 30 feet long, 30 feet wide and 30 feet high.
It's about a small three-story house.
I also converted it to a cylindrical size.
The 20 feet diameter base is 90 feet high and can accommodate 28000 cubic feet or 210000 gallons.
The same volume can be contained in a cylinder with a diameter of 40 feet and a height of 22 feet.
The core concept revolves around the rubber bladder.
I remember using rubber airbags as padding in many large fuel and hazardous material containers.
When the fuel or other material is pumped out, the bladder collapse prevents the accumulation of smoke.
I think these airbags have been used in large fuel tanks on board.
In any case, there will be no challenge in the manufacture of thick specification rubber airbags with the above cylindrical specifications.
Eventually, these rubber airbags can be configured to act as small tankers from the bottom of the sea.
If you imagine a hot air balloon on the ground, the idea is clearer.
The oil will be delivered to a huge inflatable rubber airbag.
Once filled, it will float on the water like a hot air balloon. There are bmp.
The picture in the attachment is very simple to illustrate the overall idea.
I really believe this approach can handle larger leaks.
I assume the gap diameter is about 10 feet.
I will turn the opening of the bladder into a half-fold diameter of the crack.
I will go back to the diving bell or dome design after some modifications.
I will make the opening at the top closer to the diameter of the crack to prevent the expansion from forming the effect of methane ice.
The oil sac can then dock on the dome and allow expansion when filled with oil.
Some compressed air can be used to assist with inflation.
The ballast tee allows the diver to follow my beam track to the position where the dome can be locked.
After filling, it reaches the release point along the I-beam curve.
When one leaves another bladder and moves along the track to the lock point, the other unit is ready.
Basically, we fill the rubber fuel tank at the leak and ship it to the surface.
Since these bladder are not rigid, they will not be blocked by methane ice, and will also make the opening into the bladder wider than the opening, which will reduce freezing.
I think this is better than plugging the blowout valve.
If the valve is blocked and the pipeline is broken, there will be many such problems.
The device can be pumped out on the surface.
I would suggest using a platform or boat that has a large underwater boom arm as shown in the picture.
It is best to keep the bladder upright at all times and design a recovery device that enables the control head to dock at natural depth.
See attachment for the chart.
To convey this idea to the BP engineer, I intend to send this email to more than one source, please email me if you receive and forward it to the Bp engineer, so I know it has been sent to them, thanks.
I agree with Mr very much. Gruters (e-
I'm a resident of the coastal state of Luiz Anna and it doesn't look like BP is doing what it can do at all to prevent a terrible thing that is about to push our culture and our livelihoods to death
BP is completely negligent, not only to prevent, but will certainly clean up --up the spill!
The dome is unnecessary and a waste of time-the oil floats on the surface and can be pumped into the tanker/barge-starting from the center of the shaft leak and using the floating of the existing tanker/barge to recover (
Remove surface oil from the pump)
The possible "stop leaking" would be to use missilethank youMichael Gruters to explode deep in the old shaft. s.
The use of dispersed chemicals makes it impossible to clear the surface and poisoning the ocean-it's really stupid. . . . ATTENTION! ! The PRO-
The active oil spill emergency plan listed above will not block the oil spill, but it will solve the five major problems;
Two problems with Witch are problems that the media or the government have not solved. 1.
It's really a long time.
It will help communities rebuild revenue while providing a quick action plan for future oil spills. Yes!
Despite future prevention efforts, oil spills will definitely happen in the future! 2.
The plan is complete, including staging, sowing, re-sowingApplication and re-application
Re-process all contaminated oil, oil-filled sand and seed materials
Fuel and goods available. 3.
It will not have an additional impact on marine life or the environment.
It also does not pose a threat to humans and/or other forms of wildlife.
Oil, feed and sand treatment are close to emission-free processes. 4.
It will generate $30,000,000.
00 brings new revenue to communities that accept staging and factory processing operations.
The plant will remain fully operational after cleaningup is done. 5.
It will also add about 40 new jobs to the community.
This is not only a plan to help clean up in the short term, but will also have a positive long-term and lasting impact on the community.
We all know that BP has been giving us the wrong information and then trying to mobilize volunteers to help minimize their costs. Yes!
We sent this plan to BP and other agencies.
Operations of this nature have a price tag associated with them, so it looks like they don't want to spend anything on spills they can't control, or don't go back into their pockets. The OMRS-
100 technology patent, M. O. S. E. S. (
Oil Absorption agent)
It can be tested in less than 15 minutes!
As usual, our government is looking for rapid development in the short term (political talk)
So that we can get a long-term cooperation!
Does anyone mention where they are (BP)
Plan to place and/or dispose of all contaminated items;
Oil, sand and materials?
We are pretty sure that it will be neatly hidden in someone else's backyard and kill something else if there is no intervention.
Don't you think any oil spill plan should at least be considered: prevention, mobilization, extraction and disposal operations?
Thank you for your time.
We would like to receive some constructive input from people like us who are concerned. Craig N.

ComBP ignored a proposal by Rotech that had a pump S4000 that could breathe 1500 barrels of oil per minute on the 22 "line, instead of what BP is doing on the 6 5/8 "line every day in 1800.
These BP employees are the best and brightest scientists, engineers and construction workers in the oil and gas industry.
Why are they continuing to ignore Vice President Rotech
When Hector Sussman made a suggestion directly to their response advisor, wilderwell, many of my colleagues also made the suggestion?
So far, I have been reminded by a wild well consultant that there is a leak response contract in the wild well.
I begged them to do the right thing and solve the disaster in the best way.
We did not review, criticize or implement the plan.
The reason is: they know it's the best plan, too greedy or too proud to admit it.
Say everything they do is a lie! !
Operations of this nature have a price tag associated with them, so it looks like they don't want to spend anything on spills they can't control, or don't go back into their pockets.
I am an inventor. I want to put forward three ideas.
Simplicity is virtue: 1.
Can the end tube be squeezed and closed?
Just like you can squeeze the tip of the hollow copper tube with pliers?
I don't know what kind of tools can do the job, but there are some pneumatic devices like the "claw of life" that can extract people who might work from a crashed car. 2.
Or, breaking the pipe with heavy objects, a huge flat piece of steel, it will reduce the flow. 3.
Or, close it with a broken ball.
Patrick looks like my suggestion might have been shared with others.
In May 10, I put forward the idea of pouring cement into the well.
"Eddie Igel has a suggestion on how to manage to control the oil spill.
How to use fast-set concrete or an eco-clean substance to pour into the gaps in the flow of oil in an attempt to block them.
The concrete has mass and it may form the right shape when pouring.
The concrete also looks eco-friendly as it is basically a mixture of sand and water.
Eddie Igel Washington National Broadcasting Corporation 2010 3: 09 p. m. | report of abuse | reply "I read this on the BBC website today.
"If a new program is used, heavy drilling fluids such as mud will be injected into a well about a mile or so (1. 5km)underwater.
Engineers want to follow this with cement, designed to seal the well.
The company says they have an estimated 60-
70% chance of success.
"I hope this approach will at least give the situation more control to take further steps to repair structural damage.
Eddie igwashington said why oil companies have never considered this so far and why the federal government has not fulfilled its obligation to protect the coast and wildlife, from day one, this disaster should be seen as a war, using all the technology it has, including military technology!
Save the finger pointing until after the leak stops!
Knowing that the impact of this disaster will still be felt in 20 years makes me sad!
The relationship between the US government and oil companies and special interests lobbyists has been too long.
If you use one finger, you can ease concerns about the destruction of the Gulf Coast.
It should be noted that the US government allows oil companies to drill for this particular type of disaster without any disaster plan.
It's just an idea to clean up, when the oil reaches the shore, using Hay, the Hay draws oil from the water like a sponge, and then can be picked out from the water with heavy equipment on the barge, and brought to the disposal site on land.
This is not a 100% fix, but if the spenders are not able to reach, along the coastline, it will help and create jobs for many people who have lost their jobs due to this disaster.
Now, the BP consultant will come to our team in 39 days for advice.
They have destroyed the coastal fisheries of our country and the way my community lives. Dr.
Hector Sussman and Jason Alford of the Rotech team took a pump that sucked in 2,160,000 barrels within 24 hoursiced cofferdam.
Before we arrived, BP and Wild Well got a fleet of 100,000 barrels of oil tankers, now BP and Wild Well.
It doesn't take a long time to do the right thing now.
1 inch, and then gradually reduce the diameter of the shot put bearing need to slowly fall down, this broken unstable pipe will be blocked up from the bottom, they can easily be poured through the hose or pipe, and organize itself at the time of landing, starting to form a seal to end the disaster.
Once the best footage is finally dumped, the leak ends and BP can clean up the mess.
The final cement sealant was also added to the lead.
If steel ball bearings are used, they may rust, swell, and eventually split the pipe, although it may not matter if the well point is far below the bottom of the sea.
BP needs to forget to save the well, and one day a new one will be drilled near the well if the government allows it.
Please pass this on to someone who can help with this idea.
If they mess this up and the pipes break more under the bottom of the sea, they may never stop, so they need to take positive action when they are able to reach the pipes.

Once again, filming the news on American soil, history may repeat itself!
In 1814, we had a short trip in the mighty Mississippi with Colonel Jackson, we had a little bacon and a little beans, caught the bloody British in a small town in New Orleans.
Coming, not as much as it was a while ago, we opened fire again, they started to run along the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico, we looked down the river, we saw the British coming, there must be hundreds, on the drum they walked high, they rang the army number, we stood next to the cotton bag and said nothing, we shot and the British kept one-

We have found it.
Processed materials and an action plan has been developed to extract up to 98% of oil spill contaminants from surface water in the Gulf of Mexico.
It also includes emergencies.

This can't go on anymore!
We have four suggestions for this situation. a.
The president ordered BP to do well plugging less than 5 miles from the oil rig. b.
The president's executive order left BP completely out of state control and cleaning. up process. c.
The president's executive order for BP to pay for cleaning for affected businesses and countriesup, on time. d.

The positive plan is quick, for God's sake, to make a decision without consulting BP first.
BP has so far not blocked the oil well, has not controlled the oil spill, and has not even taken prompt action to approve the national emergency plan to prevent oil leakage.
BP needs to block their damn hole and pay the country for containment and cleaningup operations.
