bop' preventor was calibrated to deal with auto-shut-off pressures of up to 15,000 Ibs psi the pressure that imerges from deep oil/gas wells is known to be above 60,000 psi; and the expandsion of gas from sea bed to sea surface is 2000 times in volume! an 18 inch pipe cannot possibly cope with this kind of gas a expansion! so you silly fools at BP, re-engineer your oil/gas extraction methods or the same thing will happen again and again!
the second intersecting well will not be able to stand the gas pressures of 60,000 Ibs psi so please get a grip of yourselves BP;
