Uh oh,  they just got caught with their hands in the cookie jar.  The greed has come back to haunt Obammy and his boys.  America,  it is time!!!!  We have to take this country back and form it back to a democracy.  Otherwise, we are all going to be suffering at the expense of these morons!  Rally date in DC anyone?

The Liberty project is on a man made Island (pad) and from one location the will drill to 40,000 feet mostly horizontally several times at several different azimuths (think octopus).  Completely different type of well.  Parker Drilling will be operating the rig for BP.

That is very interesting. It would appear you know much about this. Please continue to enlighten.

These are ERD -'Extended Reach Driling' wells.  They cover more vertical section than TVD ie they reach out very far horizontally.  This is absolutely nothing like the well in the gulf.


"The Liberty rig's ultra-extended-reach wells, guided by 3-D seismic imagery, will extend nearly two miles deep and as far as eight miles out, some with measured depths exceeding the current record of over seven and a half miles."


The reason the wells are so deep is because they are drilling from a LAND RIG to targets that are in the ocean.  And when I say "deep" I am talking about Measured Depth (ie the length of the well) not True Vertical Depth (ie the actual depth of the well)


... some 3-4 billion barrels of oil in an underground cavern estimated to be about the size of Mount Everest.


^^^  Seriously  WTF is this SH*T.  THere is no such thing as an underground cavern of oil.  This reporting is BS.


Please stop posting sensational bullcrap from  It's complete rubish.

Utter BS indeed.

One tiny well in the golf, even if it was to produce 100,000 bbl / day, does shiona for the energy thirst of the USA.


People, please become aware of the order of magnitude of daily oil consumption.

The US used 20,680,000 bbl/day in 2007, every day.

President Obama and Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar, Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, and Defense Secretary Robert Gates were informed that BP would drill an unprecedented 35,000 feet well bore at the Macondo site off the coast of Louisiana. (however Tony Hayward, BP's CEO had no knowledge of this project)

We are supposed to be a Republic and the Republic is supposed to be governed by its charter (US Consitution).  A democracy is a two wolves and a sheep voting on what is for dinner.

Republic is fine with me,  we need to get some organization as citizens millions strong and let's put a stop to these crooks.

So is a Republic two wolves getting sheep to decide which of the wolves gets the first bite?

NO.  Republic is the rule of established law and not the masses.

Good answer.  The problem is that the people who wind up "leading" the republic won't be any more competent or smarter than the "masses".  They will be rich kids who went to boarding schools and slept and partied their way through Harvard and/or Yale.

And the posters who prefer a "republic" will still be part of the disenfranchised masses.

I would prefer Anarchy, over a Democracy(unless it were a Republican/Representative  form).Majority rule, is true tyranny(mob rule), if their is no representative form of Gv't.

Also, for those that MAY have missed it here......OBAMA has recieved/DID recieve more $$$$$ from BP than ANY other member of Congress, before even being elected.

Now ain't dat sumpin'?,Whoda' thunk?.

Of course and in return for that and being the "greenest" oil company BP would have access to the white house along the same level as GE.

After all, the Deepwater Horizon  disaster was a "God Blessing" for American people. The Nobel Peace laureate Obama (and his Zionist  puppeteers) a new war, this time  against Iran, was derailed. WOW.

All America needs is another Obama war. Shit, this man is extremely dangerous. He is worse than POS Bush.

WMR learned that BP was able to have several safety checks waved because of the high-level interest by the White House and Pentagon in tapping the Gulf of Mexico bonanza find in order to plan a military attack on Iran.....


Oh that's beautiful.  That's what you get when you apply minority quotas to the office of the president.

NEWSFLASH: McCain would have done the same thing, and said so.

Both parties are the same.  No need to resort to collectivist swipes.

Bravo.  I'm a little hesitant to join the rallying cry of taking back this country in that those doing the trying all too often tend to be the ones who simply want to put the other head of the two headed monster back in power.  I too want to take this country back but it has a little bit more to do with other things than simply being pissed that a black man is in office.

Hypothetically, let's pretend that what happened was no accident but a controlled demo...could be some group (the military?) making sure an attack doesn't happen.

Obama should look into suing himself. He sues everyone else. I don't see why he doesn't have his homeboy Eric Holder look into it.

The sun'll come out 
Bet your bottom dollar 
That tomorrow 
There'll be sun! 

Just thinkin' about
Clears away the cobwebs, 
And the sorrow 
'Til there's none! 

When I'm stuck with a day
That's gray, 
And lonely, 
I just stick out my chin 
And Grin, 
And Say, 

The sun'll come out
So ya gotta hang on 
'Til tomorrow 
Come what may 
Tomorrow! Tomorrow!
I love ya Tomorrow! 
You're always
A day
A way!

Oil interest? Did you not read the post?

If this story turns out to be true, then it would be due to AIPAC -- i.e. accommodating their crazy and grandiose ambitions in the middle east.
