Subject: FW: EMERGENCIA IN STATI UNITI === FW: Sharing both CPP and CPP WITH OPEN
PIPE AND SHUTOFF

Gentlemen: 
  
Just found the references for the GULF COAST PIPE EXPERT
FIRM WHO SUPPLIED THE RISER PIPE as this emergency must
be dealt with immediately.  PLEASE let the USCG Commander
know the BOP riser can be cut away and sealed but it is
necessary to have a way to vent the gas, oil, water away while
such is being welded and pulled into place at all of the these
leak locations THEN the BOP flange can be shut down and
attempts made to shut the BOP by replacing the BOX plus
going to plan B or plan C before FLORIDA GOES AND THEN
GULF STATES GO UNDER OIL DISASTER ! 
  
I have provided enough information VERIFIABLE as to U.S.
Navy and USAR service, Weldor for Tampa Ship Repair and
Tampa General Hospital then State Certified Plumbing
Contractor/Law Enforcement experience. 
  
JUST IN CASE SOMEONE THOUGHT WE WERE AN INSANE OLD
MAN SEEKING HEADLINES:     
  
I am an experienced Professional and former Welder who
worked perhaps 9 years as a WELDER until my vision was
damaged and I left one welding job for a job working with a
local plumbing company until getting my own STATE
CERTIFIED PLUMBING CONTRACTOR LICENSE IN 1984….the
rest is history as we also were Law Enforcement Trained,
Educated then qualified and specialized in Backflow
Prevention Assembly Installation, Repair and Maintenance for

sizes from ½ inch up through 10 INCH sizes.  From hand held


items to heavy CRANES !   Just takes more thoughts, safety
and better CRANE OPERATORS ! 
  
Some think anyone my age at 70 accompanied by Ruth
DeLaMater Bundy at age 80 must be INSANE !   Why would
anyone just BUZZ OFF an old man with the knowledge and
expertise without ever checking his BACKGROUND OR
CALLING FOR EXPERIENCE IN TIME OF A TRUE EMERGENCY
OR DISASTER ?     
  
MY CRIMINAL INVESTIGATOR EXPERIENCE IS WORTHY OF
REMEMBERING AS WE HAVE ASSISTED TWO DIFFERENT
FLORIDA SHERIFF’S IN THE PAST TELLING THEM WHERE A
MURDER WAS HIDING AND A YOUNG GIRL WAS BURIED NEAR
A SEPTIC TANK…..ALL CONFIRMED AND SADLY THE
SHERIFF’S MURDERER HAD TO BE KILLED AFTER A F.L.I.R.
HELICOPTER CONFIRMED HE WAS HIDING UNDER A TREE
NOT PERHAPS 100 YARDS WHERE THE MAN SHOT THE
DEPUTY. NOW THAT SAME EXPERIENCE TELL ME THAT THIS
TRAGEDY IS A SUSPECTED FELONY ACT INVOLVING EITHER
MURDER OR CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE WHICH COULD HAVE
KILLED 115 MORE PEOPLE THAN THE 11 NOT RECOVERED ! I
KNOW SOME OF THOSE ARE RECOVERABLE RIGHT NOW AND
SCREAM FOR THIS WELL TO BE SEALED PLUS BODIES
RECOVERED AND EVEN JOKED ABOUT A NUCLEAR SUB
NUDGING THE RIG BACK TO SHALLOW WATER WHICH CAN BE
RETRIEVED.  THE DP MODE WORRIES ME OVER A PIPE ! 
  
THE HEAD OF THE U.S. SECRET SERVICE IN TAMPA WAS
ADVISED OF GEORGE WALLACE GOING TO BE SHOT AS WE
RECOMMENDED BARRIER TM CLOTH FROM SMITH AND
WESSON BE MADE INTO 15 LAYERED VESTS FOR ALL
PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES INCLUDING WOMEN.  I SAW

Page 3 of 11

GEORGE WALLACE SHOT AND IT HAPPENED 4 MONTHS OR SO


AFTER GIVING THE U.S. SECRET SERVICE THE HEADS UP.
THE LAST DREAMS GOT ME TWO VISITS FROM THE TAMPA
SECRET SERVICE IN 2010 BUT THEY FOUND OUT THIS OLD
MAN REALLY DOES HAVE A REASON TO MAKE SUGGESTIONS
FROM DREAMS.  THE U.S. SECRET SERVICE OFFICE AGENTS
FROM TAMPA ALSO FOUND OUT THIS OLD MAN CAN FIND
ANY GOLD, SILVER OR WEAPONS, VEHICLES AND METAL
ITEMS UNDERGROUND OR UNDERWATER INSTANTLY WITH
$1.00 USD WORTH OR MATERIALS AND TWO MINUTES
TRAINING.   AGENTS HAVE A TOTAL OF FOUR SETS OF THE
ITEMS AND ONE AGENT ALEXANDER WITH THE TAMPA USSS
OFFICE LEARNED THE TECHNIQUE IN TWO MINUTES FLAT !  
SILLY OLD MAN WHO TOLD YOU  THE WELL CAN BE SEALED
IN 8 HOURS TOPS ! 
  
I have seen this OIL SPILL round Florida and head across to
even perhaps the ISLANDS like Haiti and Bahamas let alone
the entire North GULF and West Coast of Florida.  My
screaming for 20 some days now about shutting down the spill
has just allowed MANY to write me off as an Insane Old
Veteran.   Being Decorated by the U.S. Navy and U.S. Army
Reserves, NO VETERAN CAN CHALLENGE ME OR MY SERVICE
IN LAW ENFORCEMENT, COMMUNICATIONS OR EVEN WORK
ON CARRIERS OR DESTROYERS.  My only screw up was diving
with EOD UNIT 2 in Charleston S.C. Naval Base in a HARD HAT
QUALIFICATION DIVE when I was UPSIDE DOWN IN COFFEE
GROUNDS AND MUD by mistake…..I lived it down !  Then got
orders to the U.S.S. Randolph CVS-15 then precom detail of the
U.S.S. Enterprise CVAN-65 where I proudly became a PLANK
OWNER  before being assigned to NAF NAPLES until blowing
my cover with ONI and being shipped out in one day from Italy
on paper as Coast Guard Officers were arrested for various
Felonies and I only had to take ONE FLIGHT TO WHEELUS IN

LIBYA THEN REPORT FINDINGS !  I then served in CRYPTO


SCHOOL at Newport R.I. then assigned to Destroyers
Warrington and Hyman until discharged from Navy then hired
at the Tampa Police Department by the Chief and Mayor…. All
verifiable ! 
  
ONE THING FELLOW PROFESSIONALS AND SO CALLED
EXPERTS ---- YOU HAVE A CRIME SCENE AT 5,000 FEET ----
ABILITY TO SEAL THE LEAK WAS PROVIDED PERHAPS ON
APRIL 26TH OR JUST A FEW HOURS LATER BUT EVERYONE
WROTE OFF THE OLD MAN AS BEING  1) UNQUALIFIED TO
MAKE COMMENTS 2) INEXPERIENCED 3) TOO OLD TO LISTEN
TO ON ANY IDEAS SO EVERYONE HIT THE DELETE BUTTON
OR PERHAPS THREW AWAY THE IDEAS IN THE CIRCULAR
FILE !    W H Y ?  I provided PATENT HOLDERS for Jet Swet,
which I have used, plus 1991 OIL FIELD PATENTS from Branko
R. Brabic in the UK living at Oxford and called him several
times direct plus HE GAVE BP THE SOLUTION IN HIS
PATENTED DRAWINGS !    
  
EXPERIENCE WITH OIL WELL EXPLOSION OR RISER
PROBLEMS --- I helped PEMEX solve their IXTOC 1 runaway
well torch coming from below the surface in 1979 at the
request of Dr. Mason Trupp, a GENIUS patent holder of the ‘G’
suit worn by all military jet pilots ! Dr. Trupp and his son also
have the patents on the scissor wing fighter aircraft ……Dr.
TRUPP asked me to contact PEMEX with a stupid sounding
idea of sealing the WELL RISER BELOW THE OCEAN FLOOR
WITH LEAD….STUPID BUT FINALLY DONE WEEKS LATER AND
MY FAMILY WATCHED THE BARGES MAKING LEAD CANNON
BALLS, GREASING SAME AND FORCING THEM UNDER HIGH
PRESSURE RAMS INTO THE WELL …..A STRANGE THING
HAPPENED….IT WAS STOPPED EVEN THOUGH I REALLY WAS
BUZZED OFF BY SOMEONE WITH RED ADAIR’S UNIT WHO

5/18/2010
Page 5 of 11

FELT I WOULD HAVE TO HAVE WORKED IN AN OIL FIELD OR


COULD NOT TELL THE MAN ANSWERING THE PHONE LINES
AS RED ADAIR WAS ENROUTE TO PEMEX TO BLOW OUT THE
WELL, HOW MANY CASINGS WERE IN A RISER…… THOSE
FACTS ARE EASILY VERIFIABLE ON ALL COUNTS FOLKS. 
  
NEITHER PEMEX NOR MEXICO EVER CALLED MY HOME,
TAMPA GENERAL HOSPITAL NOR DID ANYONE EVER
MENTION A PLUMBER II AT TAMPA GENERAL HOSPITAL GAVE
THEM THE IDEA NOR DID THE MAN EVER ASK FOR ONE CENT
WHEN RED ADAIR WAS TO RECEIVE $10 MILLION DOLLARS
FOR BLOWING OUT THE FLAMING WELL WHICH WAS LIKE AN
OXY-ACETYLENE TORCH FROM BELOW THE SEA
BED….MISSING ONE OF THE THREE FIRE TRIANGLE ITEMS
BUT STILL A BLOWTORCH FINALLY STOPPED. 
  
My partner Ruth DeLaMater Bundy tells me that “You should
just stop wasting your time with these people who will not
even call to confirm your suggestion nor CALL Branko R. Babic
in England !” 
  
Ruth is RIGHT !   YOU DO NOT NEED ADVICE FROM ANY
EXPERTS WHO HAVE BEEN THERE DONE THAT !   GOOD LUCK
--- Mr. Babic I have sadly agreed with Ruth and my dreams are
clear as crystal of the DISASTER OIL SLICK SPREADING
AROUND FLORIDA AND GOING ELSEWHERE VERY SOON IF
NOT SEALED ! 
  
MAY GOD HELP ALL IN AMERICA AND THE GULF IN
PARTICULAR PLUS ISLANDS SURROUNDING FLORIDA

Subject: EMERGENCIA IN STATI UNITI === FW: Sharing both CPP and CPP WITH OPEN PIPE AND
SHUTOFF
Importance: High 
  
Gentlemen:  
  
The PROBLEM is that I am aware of your 90 foot sections of riser pipe and Claudi Santiago plus the firm 
should review and have this procedure from Branko R. Babic in mind in any future OIL WELL DISASTERS.   I 
know you have people who can advise BP, Transocean and Halliburton that the CPP and hollow pipe CPP 
with ball valve can be inserted into your 21 inch pipe and sealed while the flow goes through the special 
piping of lesser size until the weld is made then the leak can be SEALED IMMEDIATELY.  
 
According to the Transocean website, the riser devices on the Deepwater Horizonwere
manufactured by VetcoGray, a division of General Electric Oil & Gas. The specific
designation is a "HMF-Class H, 21-inch outside diameter riser; 90 foot long joints with Choke
& Kill, and booster and hydraulic supply lines."

Here's a photo of something similar. These are Vetco risers sections show on another
vessel, the Transocean Discoverer Inspiration, when someone visited that ship last month:

 
As an OLD Florida Plumbing Contractor I started back 
IN APRIL 26 TH or later screaming about using a section of 
PIPE from experience in the Mexican Oil Rig IXTOC 1 which made 
ME get involved and knew you CAN use a flange with section of 
PIPE, BALL VALVE THEN PLACE SAME ON A JOINT FLANGE AND  
SEAL THE LEAK but the bolts must be cut and pipe section going  
AWAY FROM LEAK SOURCE fall away to make these connections. 

5/18/2010
Page 7 of 11

  
My idea was to use one LONG bolt on the flange with TOP OF 
BOLT WELDED STRAIGHT THEN LOWER TO BOTTOM AND INSERT ON 
FLANGE THEN WITH ROV SWING OVER CONNECTION AND PULL DOWN  
OVER THE FLANGE WHICH SHOULD BE 90 FEET AWAY FROM BOP 
TOP.  ONCE PULLED DOWN THE RESTRICTIVE FORCE WOULD GO UP 
TOWARD THE SURFACE ALLOWING FREE FLOW OF GAS AND OIL 
THEN ONCE TIGHTENED ALL AROUND WITH NEW BOLTS AND SCREWS  
WHICH WOULD BE TIGHTENED QUICKLY BY ROV PERHAPS USING DEEP 
WELL SOCKETS MANUFACTURED TO ALLOW TURNING QUICKLY IF NOT 
USING HYDRAULIC SPINNING SOCKET ACTION FOR LOCKING DOWN. 
  
I then found an OPEN PIPE with seal made of RUBBER which could be 
INSERTED, TIGHTENED AND SEAL MADE which could be welded in  
PLACE BY ROV using the edge of the pipe and round beveled washers. 
Once full flow was going through perhaps even a 6 inch pipe inside with 
FULL FLOW AND GAS PRESSURE RELIEVED…the round wheel ball vavle 
COULD SHUT THE SECTION DOWN SAFELY !      JET SWET and BRANKO5  BABIC 
INVENTIONS ARE SUPER SIMILAR BUT BRANKO BABIC WAS DESIGNED FOR 
SUPER PRESSURE WHEN JET SWET COULD BE TESTED IN A POOL ALONG WITH 
BRANKO BABIC INVENTION THEN THREE TAKEN TO SITE AND INSERTED EVEN INTO  
PIPE CUT WITH ROTARY BLADES ON ROV.    CLEAN CUT IS NOT SUPER NECESSARY 
AS THE INSERT CAN BE WELDED WITH PLATES TO INSIDE OF THICK PIPE AND TO THE 
THICK METAL OF THE WASHER UNIT TO HOLD SAME IN PLACE OR EVEN TO THE INTERIOR 
PIPE SINCE IT IS THICK WALL.” 
  
TO ME THE SIDE PIPES COULD BE CUT AWAY AND CAPPED LEAVING ONLY THE SUPER THICK 
PIPE AT THE FLANGE IF A FLANGE WAS GOING TO BE USED WITH THE BRANKO BABIC PIPE 
AND SHUTOFF VALVE IN PLACE WELDED ALREADY……SOUND WORTHY OF EXPEDITING SINCE 
OVER 25 DAYS HAVE BEEN LOST WHILE THE LEAK HAS BEEN PUMPING FROM THREE LOCATIONS…….. H I N 
T ! 
  
AGREE OR DISAGREE AS THE MANUFACTURER ?   Do you really have such long runs 90 feet without any 
type of check valve on those hydraulic lines in case 
5000 feet or fifty some sections at 90 feet BREAK OR FAIL ?    BOP DOES NOT HAVE ANY HYDRAULIC OIL 
REPORTEDLY AND ONE MODULE WAS KNOWN TO  
BE FAILING AND WAS NOT REPLACED PLUS THE ANNULAR RUBBER WAS DAMAGED BEFORE THE 
EMERGENCY AND PARTICLES CAME UP THE PIPE. 
  
CAN YOU WELD ANOTHER RECOVERY PIPE WITH BALL VALVE OR SHUTOFF VALVE ON SAME ALLOWING 
FULL FLOW THROUGH AT THE TOP OF A BOP CONNECTION FLANGE ? 
  
CAN YOU SEE THE BRANKO R. BABIC INVENTION ATTACHED FOR OIL FIRES TECHNIQUES REALLY WORKING 
QUICKLY TO SEAL ALL LEAKS WITHIN ONE FULL DAY ? 
  
THOSE CRANE AND ROV OPERATORS ON THE SURFACE CAN DO MIRACLES WITH THE UNITS SUSPENDED 
BY CRANES ON CALM WATER PLUS THE UNIT WOULD BE LIGHT 
ENOUGH TO BE HANDLED BY ONE OR TWO ROV’S EASILY THEN WELDING UNDERWATER WOULD SEAL 
UNIT INSIDE PIPE, EVEN SMALL DAMAGED SECTION COULD BE FILLED 
IN WITH FILLET WELDS ON THAT THICK WALL PIPE.   AS A FORMER WELDER BACK IN 1970’S WORKING

 Dear Ralph, 
 
Please see attachments. 
 
Counter Pressure Plugs designed to contain damaged oil wells in Kuwait but will work just as well
in the Gulf of Mexico. 
 
The hollow CPP can be used in horizontal situations by removing the heavy metal plates as seen in
Fig 4. The neck of the hollow tube plug is welded to the riser pipe and the valve turned off. Works
extremely well and I do not know why BP will not use my7 patents. 
 
Best regards, 
Branko Babic.

 Great talking with you some 30 minutes using SKYPE Mr. Babic. 
  
Could you share the photos again as I am positive your inventions will work NOW.  
  
PLEASE select REPLY TO ALL and each will get instantly your message or response and PHOTO’S OR 
DRAWINGS as time is of the essence here in the Gulf region. 
  
The UNDENIABLE FACT remains your invention worked in Kuwait in 1991 and will work now in 2010 in 
less than 8 HOURS !  The powers that be can prove it in a  
pool with high pressure air and water as your second INVENTION for horizontal sealing after welding 
would be perfect for all broken lines which can be cut away 
by ROV as the pressure is not great away from BOP at this time  !  
  
Once BP or ROV weld the last open pipe inside the Riser tube then shut off the valve on your invention 
similar to JET SWET we should breathe a sigh of relief.

Underwater WELDING with ROV would do the trick and weld can be xrayed by USCG if necessary to
