    Oil is still seeping at the mudline DESPITE bottom kill. The seepage rate has not changed so it seems bottom kill has not affected the mudline seep.

    DOES THIS MEAN THERE IS A FRACTURE???

    The well may be dead (like the Gulf) but the oil is still coming. Just another drop of lies in the well.

  • As I recall, the fracture occured during the aftermath of the initial volcanic oil eruption.

    IMHO the bottom kill is just a tool to keep our attention focused on one spot, and we'll overlook all other escape routes for the oil -- and that is wherever the earth and rock is compromised.

    I am not really gonna hang on this idea much; however, will have to keep an eye on it. I certainly don't want this error to go unnoticed, yet I am inclined to argue it is insignificant. I am sure that more oil leaks into the oceans naturally every day.
