THE MYSTERY OF BP'S
DEEPWATER HORIZON

[Pushing the United States that much closer to a
war for control of Central Asian and Middle Eastern oil]

INTRODUCTION

Deepwater Horizon was -

"... a fifth-generation, RBS-8D design, ULTRA-DEEPWATER, dynamically positioned, column-stabilized, semi-submersible mobile offshore drilling unit (MODU), designed to drill sub-sea wells for oil exploration and production. It is one of a very few oil rigs designed for drilling in waters more than 5,000 feet deep."

According to Kutcherov, the present oil spill flooding the Gulf Coast shores of the United States "could go on for years and years ... many years." The Obama Administration and senior BP officials are frantically working not to stop the world's worst oil disaster, but to hide the true extent of the actual ecological catastrophe, a catastrophe that may not only pollute the Gulf of Mexico, but also the Atlantic Ocean.

On April 20, 2010, the rig was in the final phases of drilling an exploratory oil well at the Macondo Prospect, Gulf of Mexico, when at 09:45 p.m. CDT, a geyser of seawater erupted from the marine riser onto the rig, shooting 240 ft into the air. This was soon followed by the eruption of a slushy combination of mud, methane gas, and water. The gas component of the slushy material quickly transitioned into a fully gaseous state and then ignited into a series of explosions and then a firestorm. Workers immediately attempted to activate the blowout preventer, but it failed. Eleven workers were killed and many more injured.

William Engdahl reports that according to Vladimir Kutcherov - a professor at the Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden and the Russian State University of Oil and Gas (and a leading specialist in the theory of abiogenic deep origin of petroleum) - says,

"WHAT BP DRILLED INTO WAS WHAT WE CALL AN OIL 'MIGRATION CHANNEL', a deep fault on which hydrocarbons generated in the depth of our planet migrate to the crust and are accumulated in rocks, something like Ghawar in Saudi Arabia."

NOTE: Ghawar, the world's most prolific oilfield, has been producing millions of barrels daily for almost 70 years with no end in sight. According to ABIOTIC science, Ghawar is located on an oil migration channel similar to that in the oil-rich Gulf of Mexico. Kutcherov estimates that the entire Gulf of Mexico is one of the planet's most abundant accessible locations to extract oil and gas.

GHAWAR, sitting atop one of the world's oil MIGRATION CHANNELS. Discovered 1948/49. Ghawar has produced 60-65% of all Saudi oil.

According to the science of ABIOTICS, oil forms under MASSIVE pressure in the Earth's mantle and "migrates" under the earth in virtual rivers or "migration channels;" but these "rivers of oil" can only be tapped by drilling deep very deep - into the Earth's crust; and when they are reached they inevitably EXPLODE to the surface as a result of the EXTREME pressure they are under.

It seems that this is EXACTLY what happened with Deep Water Horizon. BP had grossly underestimated the pressure of the MIGRATION CHANNEL it had tapped into, and the result was catastrophic.

Insofar as Ghawar is concerned, it is one of the few places on earth where these "migration channels" come close to the surface, and on land rather than at sea.

The untamed MONSTER that BP unleashed on the world.

OBAMA'S CONNECTION
TO THE CRISIS

Naturally enough, drilling into the kind of oil MIGRATION CHANNEL that BP was attempting to do is an EXTREMELY dangerous and "IFFY" proposition if only because of the very real chance that once the MIGRATION CHANNEL is tapped into, the pressure under which the oil was subjected would be too great to be managed, and the oil would explode to the surface like an uncaged MONSTER.

Nonetheless, the Obama Administration in secret collusion with BP decided that the risk was worth it: IT WOULD FREE THE U.S. FROM DEPENDENCE ON MIDDLE EASTERN OIL and allow the Obama Administration to withdraw from the turmoil of that region as it has promised to do. In the process, it would alleviate the necessity of maintaining a huge military in order to secure these deposits, something that would delight the "peaceniks" on the Left.

It turns out, however, that while BP had the technology to drill on a seabed more than 5,000 feet down, and from there another 5-6 miles to reach the "migration channel," it did not possess the technology to control the pressure the oil was under. As a result, both BP and Obama are now in full "cover-your-ass" mode; to this end, Engdahl reports that the White House has been resisting releasing any "damaging information" about the oil disaster both to -

  • "Hide the extent of the ecological disaster that has befallen the planet, and particularly, the United States."

    NOTE: In this connection, it should be noted that the Coast Guard and experts from the Corps of Engineers estimate that if the ocean oil geyser is not stopped soon, there will be irreversible damage to the marine eco-systems of the Gulf of Mexico a fact that Wayne Madsen says both BP and Obama are doing everything in their power to conceal.

    Nonetheless, Madsen says that over time it will become impossible to hide the true extent of the crisis; he claims that even a cursory look at a map of the Gulf Stream shows that the oil is not just going to cover the beaches in the Gulf, it will spread to the Atlantic coasts up through North Carolina then on to the North Sea and Iceland. And beyond the damage to the beaches, sea life and water supplies, the Gulf Stream has a very distinct chemistry, composition (marine organisms), density, temperature. What happens if the oil and the dispersants and all the toxic compounds they create actually change the nature of the Gulf Stream? Engdahl writes:

    "Without doubt at this point we are in the midst of what could be the greatest ecological catastrophe in history."

    Pictures of the ecological damage - damage that may very well not be contained along America's Gulf Coast, but could pollute the waters of America's Atlantic Coast as well. In this regard, it might be said that the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico may be the oil industry's "Three Mile Island" event - something that will permanently put an end to off shore drilling in the United States just as the nuclear catastrophe at Three Mile Island put an end to America's nuclear power industry.

  • Conceal the involvement of the Obama Administration supposedly an ecologically friendly administration - in the catastrophe.

COVER UP

Both Madsen and Engdahl say that the information BP and Obama are releasing to the public amounts to nothing more than "pure public relations disinformation designed to avoid panic."

According to Engdahl, what this clearly indicates is that the Obama administration has been conspiring with BP to hide the extent of the oil leak. For example, after the oil rig exploded and sank, the government stated that 42,000 gallons per day were gushing from the seabed chasm. Five days later, the federal government upped the leakage to 210,000 gallons a day. However, submersibles monitoring the escaping oil from the Gulf seabed are viewing television pictures of what they describe as a "VOLCANIC ERUPTION" of oil much greater than any of the current estimates.

And then there is this: When the Army Corps of Engineers first attempted to obtain NASA imagery of the Gulf oil slick they were denied that access. By chance, National Geographic managed to obtain satellite imagery shots of the extent of the disaster and posted them on their web site. Other satellite imagery reportedly being withheld by the Obama administration, shows that what lies under the gaping chasm spewing oil at an ever-alarming rate is a cavern estimated to be the size of Mount Everest fed by a never-ending river of oil. Madsen says that information regarding the extent of the crisis has been given an almost national security-level classification to keep it from the public.

NASA took this image of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill that now is visible across the entire Gulf of Mexico. The photo was taken by NASA's Aqua Satellite. You can see the oil on the beaches, even in Florida. The photo had to be pried loose from the government under the Freedom of Information Act.

Madsen writes:

"Only after the magnitude of the disaster became evident did Obama order Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano to declare the oil disaster a 'national security issue'. Although the Coast Guard and FEMA are part of her department, Napolitano's actual reasoning for invoking national security was to block media coverage of the immensity of the disaster."

CATASTROPE COULD LEAD TO END
OF DEEP WATER DRILLING

Journalist Stephen Dubner affirms the very good possibility that the Gulf Oil spill could do to deep water drilling what the catastrophe at the Three Mile Island nuclear facility did to the nuclear industry: End all deep water oil drilling off the coast of the U.S.

Dubner writes:

"You can make the argument that the 1979 accident at the Three Mile Island nuclear-power plant which came just 12 days after the release of the film The China Syndrome, a cautionary tale about a nuclear-plant meltdown helped stop the U.S. nuclear-energy industry dead in its tracks, and that the same thing is going to happen to the oil industry insofar as deep water drilling is concerned off America's coast."

Dubner continues:

"The Gulf disaster could be just the kind of tragic, visible, easy-to-comprehend event that crystallizes the already-growing rush to de-petroleum our economy. As with TMI, it won't do much to change the facts on the ground about how energy is made. But as we've seen before, public sentiment can generate an awful lot of energy on its own, for better or worse."

IF ALL THIS IS TRUE ...

If indeed the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico cannot be controlled, and it continues to wreak havoc on America's Atlantic and Gulf coastlines, destroying the livelihoods of millions and millions of people, then there could be little doubt that

  • The search for oil off America's coastline will come to a screeching halt.

  • The Obama Administration will be TOTALLY discredited once the collusion between itself and BP becomes known to the public.

  • It will make war in the Middle East all but inevitable because there will be no where else for the U.S. to turn to feed its hunger for "BLACK GOLD."

One is left to wonder if all this is not a precursor to the disaster the Bible speaks of in John 8:8-9:

"And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;

"And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed." (Revelation 8:8-9)
