Whats still burning,

natural gas from the well??? That seems unlikely since the well head is 5000ft down.

If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?

Why Don't They Blow the Well Shut?

It seems to me a good underwater demolition expert should be able to solve this problem....

setting off explosives

would do nothing to stop the oil (except nuclear, theoretically), in fact it would likely make things worse. The use of explosives in blowout situations is strictly for extinguishing the accompanying fires that occur on land and not to seal the well head.

Interesting.... I was thinking along the lines of an aircraft fired penetrating missile of torpedo blast system that would destroy the surrounding area and thus seal the well permanently...

Your post sounds pretty accurate, but I think this is possible still, you would just want to not aim directly at the leak.... rather crush the entire well cavatiy...

TL, to do as you

propose would require a thermonuclear detonation which would fuse the surrounding rock into a sort of glass and the radiation fallout would do as much if not more damage than the leaking oil.

"I Heard"

That the Russians suggested the nuke. They claimed to have done so in the past with great success. Did anyone else hear of this?

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

I heard that as well

Vac but I think it took several attempts and they had the benefit of being on dry land, not 5000' under water...LOL

I heard they had detonated offshore. Sure as hell not a -5000 above sea level.

I also heard that an

I also heard that an explosion could potentially cause the release of large amounts of gasses, enough to capsize or sink ships.

Nothing is as risky as certain failure.
