Why weren't the relief wells designed to intersect the riser pipe one or two hundred feet below the blowout prevent? That could have been done in a week. Why do they have to intersect the riser pipe 16,000 feet down, which takes months? There must be a good reason, but I have not heard it yet.

There may not be any integral functional piping left, below the surface, by now. Partly due to earlier back over-pressure cracks and constant high pressure uncontrolled flowing (abrasive internal wearing away).
They also have to go well below where most of the underground leaks may be. Also, to intersect the cased wellbore is not easy straight-line drilling. It would have been a surer effort if more than two relief wells had been initiated (two is very limited--although better than a single "one-shot" gamble).

"Cruising altitude" height oil-drilling--in other words, looking for oil at approximately +30,000 feet deep (+9.144 metres)--through mostly granite rock strata, with a one mile deep ocean depth over the field's strata, on a GPS-controlled (impossible to anchor) platform. For a 30 year's supply of crude (or possibly hydrocarbon pollution). WITH SCIENTIST A YEAR EARLIER, WARNING THE U.S. Federal Government that it was an extremely high-risk venture!
The best stupid government that money can buy (BP's purchase).
The Russians have drilled super-deep wells over 350 times now--but never over high-risk difficult to control deep-ocean conditions.
