Plugging the new program: a valve 3 straw

On May 31, British Petroleum announced the latest plan to plug the tubing leak at the bottom of Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico accident drilling rig, trying to install a hood-shaped valve and three suction pipes. The U.S. military said on the same day that the military did not have a better technology and method to plug the oil spill. The decision of whether to take over the plug-in from the BP will be decided by President Barack Obama. â–  announced a new program "drowned law" plugging failure, the British oil company decided to use diamond drill near the wellhead cut off the oil pipe, and then install a cover-shaped valve at the fracture to collect oil spills, with a pipeline to collect the valve leakage Oil into the sea tanker. This work started as early as 2 days. May 31 underwater video shows that the robot submarine manipulation of a circular saw-like equipment, cut off some of the small pipes around the oil spill pipe, cut off the oil pipeline for a few days, "clear roadblocks." According to the latest plan announced by BP on the same day, after the hood-shaped valve was successfully installed, the company intended to install a suction pipe on the blowout preventer. The blowout preventer is a major oil spill point. Previously, the Drowing Act attempted to inject high-density liquid into the pipe from this spill point, but the plugging failure failed. In a press release, the energy company said the new solution is a "supplement" to plug-in valve closures and helps to collect more oil spills. The project may start in mid-June. At the same time as another plugging program announced, BP intends to install another fixed pipe on the bonnet valve, but this pipe will stop at about 90 meters underwater, a hose connected to the fixed pipe, The oil spilled into the tanker. The project may start in late June. The Associated Press analyzed that the "hurricane season" in the United States has arrived. In the event of a hurricane, it may temporarily "cut off" the connection of the hose to the fixed pipe and end the hurricane before it is reassembled. â–  No Good "Weapons" Michael Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on the evening of May 31 that after the defeat of the "Dustin Act", the U.S. military did not block a better "weapon" of oil spills. Faced with numerous calls for the military to take over the plugging work, Mullen responded: "We are constantly paying attention from the very beginning of the oil spill ... The fact is that the world's most advanced technology exists in the field of oil spill closure Industry. "" We actually got involved but did not dominate (plugging in), "Mullen said." It's up to the president to make the change to the leader. "The Associated Press quoted on May 31 one Senior U.S. government official reports that Obama is scheduled to meet with Bob Graham and William Riley at the White House on June 1 to preside over the presidential commission investigating the oil spill. This is the first time President Obama met with the two presidents since its establishment on May 22. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is scheduled to meet with several federal prosecutors and state attorneys on June 1 in New Orleans, a coastal city in the Gulf Coast of Louisiana. This is the first time Holder went to the disaster area to investigate the incident. Some legal experts have analyzed that the U.S. government is likely to launch a criminal investigation. â–  Fish hard to survive On May 31, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that it will further expand the fishing ban in the Gulf of Mexico by more than 2,600 square kilometers and now at least 160,000 square kilometers in the sea. "The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration continues to work closely with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the state governments to ban fishing in areas where the contaminated seafood may be salvaged, thereby ensuring seafood safety," the agency said. 74% of the Gulf of Mexico is still open to the sea. Two separate studies by Louisiana State University and the University of Florida show that there are large quantities of oil that exist in a striped form beneath the surface of the Gulf of Mexico. "These (petroleum) bands will make it hard for fish to survive," said Prosagasa Chakrabadi, a professor of fish biology at Louisiana State University. "We are very likely to have lost dozens of vulnerable fish." Fisherman Kay Wen Korul told AFP reporters: "This (oil spill) will kill many kinds of fish, people came here to fish first, but now people come here to commemorate the coming lifestyles ... Oil spill will kill Our whole lifestyle. "This article Keywords: valve
