Five "small leaks" around BP well ARE a reason to be VERY concerned. Chris Landau (geologist)

Thad Allen says "We've found nothing that would be consequential," said retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, the national incident commander, in a news conference Tuesday July 20,2010in the afternoon. This newswas reported by Kimberly Quillen of The Times-Picayune.

We should be extremely concerned for three reasons.

1) There is at least 9824 psi of gas and oil missing over and above the 6700 to 6,830 pounds per square inch (psi) being reported. See my article for calculating the missing pressure that would have been required to keep the gas and oil down in the well while drilling. http://www.opednews.com/articles/BP-Halliburton-Transocean-by-Chris-Landau-100717-770.html This "leaking" or gushing oil and gas coming through the sea floor tells a person that all is not right. The 6830 psi is too low. The pressure is building in the well because the surrounding formations are being pressurized from deeper down. The oil and gas pressure is following the weakest links through the formation blown out zones. It also means that although the cap is holding, it is only holding because the formation strength is compromised, allowing the missing 9824 psi oil and gas to leak away through these broken hyper-porous horizons.

2) If the leaks around this well are due to badly sealed, wells, why are they now beginning to "leak" It means that they are now receiving oil and gas pressure from the BP-Halliburton-Transocean-Anadarko-Mitsui-Well. I apologize for the investors I have left out. I am sure they would like their name in print to be forever associated with this well.

3) If the leaks are unrelated, how many badly sealed wells are there in the oceans of the world, polluting it now on a daily basis? There are probably tens of thousands of plugged and abandoned wells whose cement plugs are breaking down, or will break down with earth movements and chemical attack. It is an environmental catastrophe of the greatest order. No further drilling in the sea should be allowed anywhere in the world. We are now only beginning to see the slap-dash, out of sight-out of mind way the oil industry works.

No more permits should be issued. The oil industry is ruining our world.

Enough is enough. Cancel all offshore drilling permits permanently.
