Rigel Well "Leaking" Near BP-Transocean-Halliburton-Anadarko-Mitsui (BPTHAM)Gusher by Chris Landau (geologist)
Get as many closed wells like The Rigel Well into immediate production. It will save the time of having to drill new relief wells. It will also prevent the rock formations from breaking down and causing more gushers through the ocean floor.
As the formation is blown at the BPTHAM well, it might be a good idea to bring the Rigel well that Thad Allen spoke about on July 19, 2010 into production. The Rigel Well which was drilled into The Rigel Well field in 1999 is now blowing off gas as pressure builds in the formations.
This Rigel well is leaking as the oil and gas is being pushed out into the surrounding formations from the BPTHAM blowout well, now that the cap is holding back some pressure on the BPTHAM well. That is where the approximate 10000 psi is going.
See my article on OPED News on July 17, 2010.
The pressure must be enormous and the rock highly fractured for the gas to push through two miles of rock and push out at this Rigel Well.
I think we might even see the cement plug pop, like the cork on a bottle of champagne. I guess the only thing worth celebrating is the end of the oil industry. Every day, they make a bigger mess, puts another nail in their coffin.
The link below explains my calculations.
By getting this Rigel well into production, it can become one of the 8 relief wells that I spoke about on June 11, 2010.

By getting as many closed or partly closed wells into immediate production, it will save the time of having to drill new relief wells.
This Rigel Well will help reduce the back pressure and save the surrounding formations from disintegrating further. Search the area for other non-producing wells that have been plugged and get them into production.Depressurize the area.
