18. They do need to make sure they don't blow up the blowout preventer.
Edited on Sun May-23-10 01:24 AM by backscatter712
They're gonna be shooting drilling mud into the BP at insanely high pressures to overwhelm the oil pressure coming up from the well.

Keep in mind that the gushing oil has a lot of sand in it, that's been grinding at the inside of that BP for a month now.

If they use too much pressure, they could blow the BP apart completely in which case we're completely SOL until the relief well is finished in August...
