Subject: MAYDAY TWELVE --- ARE YOU REALLY THAT STUPID SO CALLED EXPERTS ? --- DO YOU KNOW WHAT SMOOTH
SURFACE IS ON A 32 or 36 INCH FLANGE --- How many BP Experts does it take to Cause a National Disaster for MONTHS ?

Ladies and Gentlemen: ARE YOU REALLY THAT STUPID ?

24 32 29.5 1.88 1 3/8 20 1 1/4 x 5 1/2

36 46 42.75 2.38 1 5/8 32 1 1/2 x 7

I went to sleep for three hours and woke up with a frightening thought watching CNN show the odd cut riser and BP
indicating the leak may be there until December 2010.

I sincerely HOPE someone really WALKS OUTSIDE THE COMMERCIAL OR GOVERNMENT BUILDING and asks
Maintenance to show them the LARGEST BACKFLOW ASSEMBLY and once found looks at the FLANGE connections
and thinks for one moment about how to get a PERFECT SUPER TIGHT SEAL OVER ANY FLANGE. Keep this in
mind. 21 inch riser OD OR ID may mean a 24 inch SUPER SLICK AND FORMED FLANGE LEAVING PERHAPS 1 inch
ALL AROUND SLICK TOP FOR CONTACT WITH THE SO CALLED TOP HAT THAT SOME IDIOT THOUGHT THEY WERE
GOING TO PUT OVER THE BENT 21 INCH RISER WITH THIS LATEST SOMBRERO 5 UNIT. BP admitted there were
going to be LEAKS simply because no one made a SKYPE CALL OR LONG DISTANCE CALL TO FLORIDA OR

1
CHECKED WITH THE U.S. NAVY OR U.S. COAST GUARD DAMAGE CONTROL EXPERTS. Follow with me for a
moment. Size OD for a 24 inch FLANGE is 32 inches with Bolt diameter 1 and 3 eights taking 20 bolts 1 and 1
quarter X 5 and 1 half. Obviously NOT the perhaps 8 bolt FLANGE shown but do not give up…… take a 28 inch
LENGTH OF 34 INCH PIPE WITH THICK WALL STEEL OBJECT ROUND.

FIRST --- DRILL OUT A 22 INCH INCH HOLE OR WELD A 22 INCH THICK WALL PIPE TO THIS HOLE SO YOU CAN
ATTACH A WEIGHT OBJECT AND HAVE A FLANGE ATTACHED ALLOWING AN UNDERGROUND WHEEL CONTROLLED
GATE VALVE .

SECOND--- TAKE THE 22 INCH HOLE OBJECT WITH 22 INCH WELDED PIPE OVER TO A MACHINE SHOP
IMMEDIATELY THEN USE THE LATHE TO CUT OUT A 32 INCH OD CUT SOME 12 INCHES DEEP INSIDE ALLOWING
THE INTERIOR TO JUST CLEAR THE 32 INCH FLANGE BY MILIMETERS BUT ONCE IT CONNECTS WITH WEIGHT IT
WOULD MAKE A PERFECT SEAL ON THE UNDISTURBED FLANGE LIKE YOU LOOKED AT OUTSIDE THE BUILDING.

THIRD --- TAKE THE NEAT DONUT MODIFIED OUT OF THE LATHE JAWS AND ATTACH GIANT WEIGHTED BARBELL
WEIGHTS PERHAPS 8 FEET IN DIAMETER AND 4 FEET THICK THEN ON TOP OF THAT AREA WELD YOUR SUPER
HIGH PRESSURE GATE VALVE AND BEYOND THAT MAKE UP THE FLANGE TO ATTACH TO THE GE RISER PIPE.

FOURTH --- USE SPECIAL GASKET MATERIAL ALLOWING THE 22 INCH RISER HOLE TO BE MACHINED OUT
UNDERNEATH TO THE PRECISE AREA TO BE SEALED ON THE FLANGE RIM WHERE IT WILL CLEAR ALL BOLTS AND
NUTS LEAVING AT LEAST 2 INCHES PERHAPS FOR THE RIG TO SET ON WITH SUPER WEIGHT LIKE A WASHER
SEALING THE OIL AND GAS LEAK AND ALLOWING BP TO BE CHECKED IMMEDIATELY BY THE STOELTING
ULTGRASCRIBE POLYGRAPH 8 CHANNEL LAPTOP BECAUSE IT WOULD APPEAR YOU HAVE TRUE TERRORISTS
WITH SUPER MONEY BACKING IN YOUR MIDST.

EVERY FORMER NAVY MAN GOING THROUGH DAMAGE CONTROL TRAINING OR EVERY UNDERGROUND UTILITY
AND STATE CERTIFIED PLUMBING CONTRACTOR ALONG WITH FIRE PROTECTION CONTRACTORS KNOW YOU CAN
QUICKLY MACHINE ANY THICK ROUND STEEL OBJECT CUTTING OR BORING A HOLE PERFECTLY IN SAME,
HOLDING IN A MACHINE LATHE MAKING SURE THE HOLE IS PERFECT INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THEN CUTTING AWAY
12 INCHES OF METAL ALLOWING A PERFECT FIT OVER A FLANGE THEN UP 12 INCHES INSIDE THIS HUGE WASHER
ONE WOULD MACHINE OUTWARD PERHAPS 1 INCH BY 4 INCHES TO ALLOW PERFECT CONTACT WITH THE FLAT
UNOBSTRUCTED SURFACE OF THE FLANGE MAKING A PERFECT SEAL.

FIFTH ----- The block could have bottom 2 inches of the 12 inches bored all around with holes which would be
tapped and allow bolts to protrude turned by ROV or socket or BOX WRENCH clamping down on the bottom flange to
hold it in place securely.

Earlier this old Veteran told you to get another BOP flange for the top ready. NO ONE CARED TO CHECK with the
Manufacturer on the exact measurements of existing BOP flanges which might be 6 inches thick for each Flange
and a specific OD which is NOT illustrated above folks. The BOP flange will be perfectly ROUND and smooth with at
least 2 inches perhaps of clearance from the outside of the flange to the first contact with a BOLT and THAT IS
YOUR TARGET to set something like the SEALED TOP HAT SIX which will not only seal but have sufficient weights
to prevent it being raised as you have flow thru BRANKO R. BABIC Counter Pressure PLUG idea incorporated and
instead of placing OVER a pipe you place the unit OVER A PERFECTLY SMOOTH FLANGE which is GOD SEND IN
DISGUISE!

HOW MANY BP EXPERTS DOES IT TAKE TO SCREW IN A LIGHT BULB AT A DESK LIGHT ?

IN MEMORY OF DR. MASON TRUPP FORMERLY OF TAMPA GENERAL HOSPITAL THE INVENTOR OF THE MILITARY
JET PILOT “G” SUIT WHO INDICATED IN 1979 NOT TO GIVE UP UNTIL YOU TALK TO THE HIGHEST PEOPLE IN
GOVERNMENT WHEN YOU HAVE AN IDEA OF NATIONAL SECURITY !

Rear Admiral Landry --- You can have anyone go to CAMERON the manufacturer of the BOP to get the exact OD,
thickness and CLEARANCE IN INCHES from the rim of the Flange to any contact with a bolt or NUT which leaves
plenty of room to shut this nightmare down. ALL YOU NEED is to have a flat seal and the water department can
share what they use in County or City departments for that task which is like a special washer used inside backflow
assembly components using flange to flange connections. THAT can be placed carefully OVER the flowing pipe and
be waiting on the TOP of the flange to seal with the inside cut for that same purpose and THERE WILL BE NO LEAKS
of any air, water or GAS.

PAINT THE DARNED THING RED, WHITE AND BLUE FOR OUR MILITARY PAST AND PRESENT PLUS FUTURE PLEASE
!

Remember the PAINT will not last long but neither will my TRUST in BP who seem to be terrorists of the worst kind
right now !

Professionally,

Paul:

I have tried since 042610 to get BP and others who were involved in IXTOC 1 to realize and recognize their methods would not work. Now the
GULF COAST is in a NATIONAL DISASTER. Stay Safe and visit perhaps Cannes before the OIL reaches there later next year. Too many days,
nights and weekends were lost posting to the President, BP, Governors and USCG. We now are backing OFF until forced to move in evacuations
from Tampa should other wells suddenly develop problems similar or worse.

Rear Admiral Landry and others including Oceaneering:

Since 042610 Ruth DeLaMater Bundy and I have attempted to get information across to BP and others
making the decisions that the SECRET TO STOPPING THE LEAK AND RECOVERY OF ALL OIL AND GAS WAS
KNOWN. Sadly no one reviewed material with the TRUE EXPERTS who work in similar leak problems ALL
OVER THE WORLD !

Keep this in the back of your mind: The FLANGE TOP section of the BOP connection could have been cut
away long ago had you removed the piping pushing down on same and pulling.

Now that the FLANGE is clear, the BOP manufacturer must have had one or plans to make on somewhere on
the Planet that could be made in a big machine shop with all holes and piping to allow the GE FLOTATION 21
INCH RISER to be connected in hours to the TOP of the BOP by the new flange with shutoff and female flange
above shutoff. Oddly the use of a NEW flange only had to result in Oceaneering CUTTTING away the bolts
connecting the present flange, removing same and crane lowering the new flange onto the BOP with a
perfect seal that could not leak.

Alternate was clean cut perhaps 3 feet above the BOP flange then insertion of the Branko R. Babic Counter
Pressure Plug vertically sealing the flow and allowing BP to draw off a large amount of oil, gas and water
perhaps to the surface and any emergency would allow shutting down the rig BOP forever.

Here I observed the piping cut away, no attempt to make a clean cut around the riser which may indeed be
damaged ….the reason why we recommended getting another FLANGE to connect pipe and a shutoff above
same.

BP, TRANS OCEAN AND WHOMEVER never listened about making a large pipe just barely tapered inside
thick wall pipe going down over the FLANGE FOR A PERFECT MATCH AND SEAL as special material could be
like a giant O ring inside sealing perfectly against the TWO existing FLANGE SURFACES with special
threaded rods using tapped BOLT screws tightened against the bottom FLANGE steel holding everything in

6
place but allowing a full bore perhaps 36 inch pipe with shutoff toward the surface to hook up with the neat
GE 21 inch Flotation pipe. NO LEAKS AT ALL.

Instead the SOMBRERRO type unit will leak as it cannot match up with the riser now bent and damaged
extending out of the top flange mainly because the sealed compartment will not match up perfectly and
machined to seal on the top of the top flange. Thus WEEKS OR MORE will have leaks all over the Gulf not
being able to stop same when the solution was given but not from an expert hired by BP or College Professor
looking in a BOOK but from a State of Florida Certified Plumbing Contractor with too many years experience
with water, gas and sewage….all which would work at 5,000 feet by well qualified crane operators and well
qualified ROV operators.

I really appreciate the Courtesies shown an Old Decorated American Veteran by the various Lieutenants with
the USCG and lower enlisted who have talked with me in the past via internet and phone. I am shocked the
DAMAGE CONTROL SPECIALIST OF THE NAVY SHIPS AND SUBMARINES DID NOT GET COUNSELED ON HOW
TO SOLVE THIS LEAK EVEN THOUGH THE OUTSIDE DIAMETER OF THE FLANGE MIGHT BE 36
INCHES….THEY DO MAKE THICK WALL 36 INCH PIPE WHICH COULD BE WELDED ON SURFACE LOCATIONS
TO GIANT HEAVY WHEELED VALVE OR EVEN THE “MEGA FLANGE CONNECTORS” SUCH AS SERIES 2100

Someone really needs to look at the Branko R. Babic Counter Pressure PLUG which would STOP all flow or
the CPP with flow through Pipe which could work in 2 feet of riser which is obviously there. My money would
have been on a NEW FLANGE or putting that Super Thick STEEL PIPE OVER THE FLANGE machined to seal
against the PERFECTLY ROUND AND PERFECT TOP CUT ON THE TOP FLANGE WHERE THE RISER IS
COMING OUT. It would be OBVIOUS machine grooving or cutting of the thick wall pipe to critical bevels
would have allowed a welded shutoff and also attachment of a reducer welded with flange to accept the GE
pipe then YOU WOULD NOT HAVE ANY LEAKING OIL as the free section over the second flange would have
super tapped holes with super bolts perhaps 2 inch holding unit to the bottom FLANGE while the pressure
7
above the pipe would consist of weights much like giant circular weights of a weight lifter bar before the
shutoff wheeled gate valve and short pipe with reducer and flange for 21 inch flotation riser pipe.

INSTEAD OF USING THE OBVIOUS SOLUTION now BP, with full permission of the President and USCG will
unleash a leak into the GULF risking more damage, attempt a DRILL into the CASING 7” TO 36 “ AREAS
ACTING AS A RISER which is dangerous to SHUT DOWN THE WELL ? OR DRAW OFF THE DEEP WELL
CONTENTS INTO ANOTHER RISER WITH UPRIGHT BOP WHICH COULD FAIL IN THE FUTURE AS THEIR RISER
PIPE TO THE NEW WELL CASING DRILL IS STILL NOT FLOTATION GE PIPE AND THE NEW BOP WILL BE
STRAIGHT UP WHEN IT SHOULD BE LYING ON IT’S BACK IN THE GULF FLOOR WITH TEE HAVING SPECIAL
SHUTOFF VALVES.

NO ONE USED ANY MACHINED BEVELED 12 INCH WASHER WITH FLOW THRU PIPE WITH OR WITHOUT
SLEEVE THEN PUSHED TWO FEET INTO THE BOP FLANGE TOP TO MAKE A PERFECT SEAL….ACTUALLY THE
RISER IS WEAKENED AND MAY REALLY BE A PROBLEM BUT THEN A REAMER COULD REAM THE PIPE
INSIDE THE FLANGE AND A COUNTER PRESSURE PLUG COUL HAVE SHUT OF THIS WELL IN 8 HOURS FLAT
FOLKS……BP WANT’S THE FLOW OF OIL AND GAS AND ALSO DESIRES TO PUT IN ANOTHER DRILL RIG
TAPPING ON THE SIDE OF THE PIPE CASING FOR DEEPWATER HORIZON AND THIS COULD BLOW OUT
REALLY BIG BUT AMERICA MUST TALK TO PEMEX ABOUT IXTOC 1 IN 1979….AS THE SAME PLAYERS WERE
THERE AND LEARNED NOTHING.

FOR MY MONEY I WOULD USE WHAT WAS DISCUSSED, SAVE THE MILLIONS ON MAKING A RELIEF WELL
AND GET THE OIL AND GAS UP FROM THE BOP TOP ! But that is me ! NOT YOU OR NOT MY PRESIDENT !

GOD HELP AMERICA AS BP DOES NOT HAVE THE SAME DESIRE TO SECURE THE LEAK, ONLY PULL OFF THE
8
OIL AND THEY FAILED WITH IXTOC 1 AND WILL FAIL WITH THIS WELL AT THE COST OF THE AMERICAN
PEOPLE……..IS THAT WORTH IT MR. PRESIDENT ?

I will NEVER post again unless invited by the President OR Rear Admiral Landry then ALL OF YOU will not be
copied unless directly from the President OR Rear Admiral Landry.
