It is amazing how dumb these oil people are. To stop the leak is easy, but no one wants to think outside the box. If you take a Kevlar Balloon pack it tight like a airbag on a car, then push it down about 500 yards into the well, then set off a couple of nitrogen cartages at let’s say 200PSI, and BAMB! Leaked stopped.

Good idea Dag, but at the depth they are working at the sea pressure is over 2000 lbs/sq in. Sea water is 44.4 lbs/per sq in per 100 feet.
