An interesting video via Jeff Rense that suggests the capped well we have seen on mainstream news may not be the same well that was leaking oil after the rig disaster.
We hate to keep hounding on the BP oil disaster, because from all mainstream indications the well has been capped and there is supposedly no oil leaking into the Gulf. However, when we come across points of interest such as this one, we find it necessary to share.
After all, most of our readers are here to garner as much information as possible about current events to help determine future trends (yes, we stole that line from Gerald Celente). The more we know about man made disasters, the better we can prepare.
After watching this video, we found it hard to believe. So, we looked up recent news reports from mid to late July to see if the videos being shown in the news were in fact showing coordinates for what is referred to as “Well A.” According to reports, “Well A” was actually shut down because of a drilling problem and was already capped. “Well B” is the well that we have all become so familiar with. It turns out that the videos in this Al Jazeera report do show the coordinates near “Well A”, as opposed to the actual well that was supposedly leaking the oil.
Either the coordinates were inaccurate in the videos the rovers were taking or they were inaccurate in BP’s Exploration Plan dated February 23, 2009. Or, the rovers images we are seeing are from “Well A,” which was already reportedly capped prior to the leak!
Notice the coordinates:
BP’s Initial Exploration Plan Dated February 23, 2009:
Well “A” coordinates are X: 1202803.88, Y: 10431617.00
Al Jazeera report dated July 14, 2010 show capped well coordinates are X: 1202 770.66, Y:10431626.14
Notice the extremely close proximity of the coordinates. Remember, “Well A” was supposedly never leaking because it had already been capped!
Since everything BP said in the first several weeks of the accident was pretty much found to be either false or grossly inaccurate, it is hard for us to overlook this as a simple mistake.
We’ll have to leave this one for our readers to decide, as we are not experts at the specifics of oil drilling or mapping.
For some additional information on this, we refer readers to this interesting discussion on the topic of Well A and Well B as well as the accompanying four part video that further explores the specifics of BP’s wells, their coordinates and the aforementioned discrepancies.
The first video in this article depicting the discrepancies between the rover coordinates is dedicated to Matt Simmons. Simmons, as you may know, was an outspoken critic of BP and the government’s response to the oil leak, going so far as to suggest that there were multiple leaking wells, sea floor seepage, and the possibility of volcanic, steam or methane driven Tsunamis resulting from the pressures of extreme deep water drilling. He was also one of the first to suggest that BP’s well was leaking upwards of twenty times the initial BP estimates, which was later found to be very close to the actual amount. He was no friend of the oil giant or those who stood to make billions from the spill fallout, though it has been reported that he stood to make quite a bit of money in the event BP’s stock collapsed as he was shorting the market. (His short sell never materialized as the stock remained more or less stable)
Matt Simmons was found dead in his hot tub on or around August 9, 2010. Initial reports indicate he experienced a heart attack in the hot tub which led to accidental drowning. Though it may be a coincidence, an informed Zero Hedge contributor pointed out that Bernie Madoff’s one-time partner Jeffry Picower had an eerily similar accident in October of 2009, having first experienced a heart attack in his pool and then drowning accidentally. Picower was reportedly complicit in Madoff’s multi-billion dollar fraud.
Though the incidents may be in no way related, nor is foul play officially suspected, we find the accidental deaths to be of interest.
