88. Won't work.
The well is surrounded by cold water. This is a huge heat sink - the lava will be solid in minutes. And the oil will just blow right through the lava before it solidifies, even if you can dump enough. All you'll achieve is a slab of lava sitting on the sea floor, with a neat hole in the middle where the oil will continue to blow. you could even end up with more oil coming out at the edges of the lava field. These inventive solutions are neat to hear about, but they're not practical.
