Mudlogging geologist states directional wells will not work to solve this Transocean-Halliburton-BP blown out well and will create a larger uncontrolled disaster. Chris landau(geologist)

Dear BP and President Obama

Geologist (mudlogging) seeks explanation on how 2(two) new directional wells will solve problem?

Please explain to this ignorant high pressure mud logging geologist how directional wells into the existing well will solve your problem.

If you can not pump drilling mud and cement into the well now that you have only one leaking point to stabilize the situation, all that you will do is create more holes in the casing and production pipe for the oil and gas to leak out of, by drilling more rough boreholes into this well.

More cement and mud from more points is not going to help. You are just creating more holes.

You will create jagged edges deep underground that you will not be able to see.

You will not be able to see whether your seal is working from the inside of the new pipe.

Please tell me of one occurrence where this idea of directional wells drilled into an existing blowout well of high pressure has worked.

Call to publish the mudlogs and e-logs for the USA. You have no right to keep us in the dark.

Publish the mudlogs and e-logs so that we can all see what is going on.

You need to drill 4 new wells 1500 feet away and surrounding this existing well to take out the oil and gas pressure from this zone.
