FYI. I never received the full specs [height, width, weight, flange measurements]
from Cameron for reasons unclear. Believe the existing BOP would weigh in at some
size and be X number of feet high with a female seal of X inches on the bottom.

I am super concerned that the drillers do not use STAINLESS STEEL CASINGS which
will never rust PLUS the BOP is leaning 11 degrees and they stack more weight on
same which can cause total failure of an unsupported huge tall steel item waving
back and forth in the Gulf. My initial thoughts were that NO BOP IS LEFT ON A
CASING once they start pulling OIL so why IS this BOP being left on the casing for
Deepwater Horizon.

The BOP and RIG FROM DEEPWATER HORIZON IS CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION


EVIDENCE FOLKS !

Once you shut down the flow the bad casing section might surface quickly and then
the only solution will be perhaps using the Branko R. Babic FRICTION PLUG 200 feet
long and 13 plus 5/8 inch diameter lowered deep in the well.....again STAINLESS,
then sealing with FRESH WATER MIX HYDRAULIC CEMENT displacing all oil and
gas THEN A SPECIAL CEMENTED SEAL ON TOP OF THE GULF SEA FLOOR !

WHO WILL ALL ISLANDS SUE ONCE THE OIL REACHES THEIR WATERS AND ALL
DESALINATION PLANTS HAVE TO BE SHUT DOWN?

"NEVER AGAIN" should become the battle cry for the TALL BOP SITTING ON A
CASING PROTRUSION MALE ADAPTER !

The use of three stainless ball valves on one stainless TEE 36 INCHES having three
ports to use even for sealing a well or removing a BAD BOP allowing hookup to a
BOP on horizontal laying down on special coated "I" beams with flanges and
shutoffs going up on a stainless 90 should be the norm. Instead we have a DRILL IT,
PULL OFF THE BOP AND GET OUR MONEY AND OIL FOR 30 YEARS, RETIRE RICH
AND LEAVE THE POSSIBILITY OR GUARANTEED BLOW OUT OF THESE RIGS TO

THE NATION WE ARE DRILLING IN THEIR WATERS AS WE WILL BE GONE !

Sounds like BP has a plan ! 27,000 sealed wells make any sense as they are STEEL
CASINGS IN SALT WATER ? Look below NAVY BLIMP, you will find many more
leaking well heads.

WHAT ABOUT USING THE HUBBLE TELESCOPE TRAINED ON THE GULF TO FIND
MORE LEAKS ?

NAVY BLIMP OVER THE GULF FOR WEEKS AND MONTHS ? HOPE THE CREWS
HAVE PORTA POTTIES !

IS IT REALLY TRUE BP THAT YOU COULD HAVE STOPPED THE LEAK IN 8 HOURS
BACK ON 042310 THROUGH TODAY ?

WHY RUIN THE GULF WITH YOUR POTENTIAL EXPLOSIVE STEEL CASING
PROBLEMS ?

GET READY FOR THE DESALINATION PLANTS TO SHUT DOWN AND LOSS OF
INCOME FOR FRESH WATER IN ISLANDS !

WE HAVE THE NATION'S LARGEST DESAL PLANT ON 41 JUST SOUTH OF


TAMPA ! That alone will drain funds in Millions !

I have an appointment to have my INR checked at the VA Folks. Sorry to leave the

Mr. Babic and others: WHAT PART OF "CASING IS NOT STAINLESS


STEEL PIPING" DID YOU MISS ?

Today we noticed BP intends to take the leaning TOWER OF THE GULF or


BOP FROM DEEPWATER HORIZON 1 which is some 8 stories tall and
leaning over some 11 Degrees already then add a 12 foot flange transition
some 15,000 pounds plus 18 foot capping stack 150,000 pounds OR
roughly 11 STORIES TALL 250,00 pounds of steel then attempting to shut
off same. Thank GOD that Cameron finally released the BOP TOP
FLANGE MEASUREMENTS !

Sadly the normal routine would be to remove the existing Cameron BOP,
replace same with another smaller BOP like the 18 foot capping stack then
look at the damaged or failure BOP ON THE SURFACE to see what really
happened. Such would also ALLOW BP TO SHUT OFF THE WELL
CASING at will but removed the super high tilting BOP which is really
prone to damage now and possibly going to fall over if the casing is
damaged below the BOP male connection would nearly remove the risks.

Notice that FINALLY Cameron or someone gave the BP people the flange

7/15/2010
Page 4 of 10

measurements which could have accomplished the shutting down part


with the Branko R. Babic counter pressure plug attached to the full riser
some 10 feet long then weighted section and shutoff gate valve rated at
15,000 PSI. On top would be another small section of riser super thick to a
flange allowing BP to pull off oil and gas for an unlimited amount of time.

It is NOT IMPORTANT that BP will finally be using ideas submitted by you,


me and others. What is important is ADMIRAL THAD ALLEN RETIRED
USCG has no clue that the 11 story leaning tower of GULF SPILL can fall
over once the riser is connected and for any reason, especially
Earthquake or some other jolt like a drunk whale hitting same. No Branko
R. Babic Friction Plug 200 feet long 13 and 5/8 diameter STAINLESS
STEEL is standing bye for any rig sealing or shutoff. This leaves open the
entire GULF, Florida, Islands and East Coast then European areas in
danger.

BP sure came up fast with a male adapter on flange to attach to the small
BOP female which due to weight at 150,000 pounds will sit down but I am
worried about the LEAN AND FAILURE DOWN THE ROAD ! The TOP KILL
can be used again on the smaller BOP but still the EVIDENCE NEEDED UP
ON TOP IS Se TILL ATTACHED AND WILL INDEED FALL OVER
SHATTERING THE CASING MALE RISER !

Hope they have your Friction Plug standing bye on the bottom as once
they try to shut down the flow the damaged lower casing may show clearly
a problem and final sealing with Counter Pressure Plug may be thrown
away if they attempt to use the IXTOC 1 method and again I urge everyone
to use LEAD BALLS either Baseball or Softball SIZE forced into the casing
like IXTOC 1 PEMEX people used to seal the casing and remember
eventually the BOP DAMAGED DEEPWATER HORIZON must be removed
and casing top sealed.

I ALSO ENCOURAGE MY PRESIDENT AND MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO


DEMAND STAINLESS STEEL BE USED FOR ALL OIL, GAS, WATER
FUTURE CASINGS AS IT DOES NOT RUST THUS MAY LAST FOREVER IN
SALT WATER WITHOUT A PROBLEM. 27,000 STEEL CASINGS WILL
THREATEN THE UNITED STATES IN THE FUTURE AND GRANDCHILDREN
MAY FIND IT OVERWHELMING AS LEAKS WILL KILL EVERYTHING AND
EVERY LIVING CREATURE IN THE FUTURE.

Stay safe Mr. Babic and watch what happens to this fiasco as they are
indeed pushing the leaning damaged BOP to new limits of stress with the
165,000 pounds plus the pull on the RISERS.

Dear Ralph,

have we not been saying since this disaster happened, that they cut off the damaged pipe and attach a
repair to the cut riser. Undo the flange bolts by all means, and bolt down the repair service but in
both cases, we were asking BP to do the very thing they have finally done!

Much of the disaster could have been avoided had they adopted the Counter Pressure Plug (CPP)
concept we presented in May!

Of course BP is not acknowledging our contribution, now saying, “oh yes, we have something
similar to your patents that we have designed as a means of repairing the damaged installation”.

I experienced the same problem in Kuwaiti in 1991 and those who took my patents, walked of with
billions, without paying me a penny for the use of my patents. Frightening!

Regards,

Branko Babic.

Brad Wehdt also recommended another BOP to shut down the well. Think BP will plan on
keeping old BOP on casing but I predict casing leak or worse BOP falls over.

me) of fix to replacing flange and broken pipe months ago there by avoiding this diaster...

BP just removed flange and broken riser – to be replaced with leak less seal

I have been proposing stop leak solution and others relating to oil collection and sealing the well for months
to BP and multiple print/broadcast media…

1) – Stop Leak Now (SLN) Simplest Fix – Replace old flange and broken (now cut) pipe at top of BOP – has
“(6) hex nuts”,– with new flange and associated pipe to surface.Unscrewing “hex nuts” and replacing with
new outer flange. This is similar proceedure to when well was first installed (2001). This should make non
leaking connection to surface collection. Once again do not use dispersant into leaking oil so can be
collected by tankers at at surface – where are they ?

This could have been done after the smoke cleared (day 2) and this disaster avoided …

p.s. It is unfathomable why this was not done.

I posted this over 6 weeks ago:

Here is what has been proposed to BP and multiple media sources for over a months. - can not sleep
watching this global disaster take place, unabated while there are solutions. It is unfathomable why this is
allowed to continue

www.infrastructuresolutionsmag.com/node/891#comment-22

three thing to ask?

1) why oil not contained and collected now and from day1 ? - no tankers at all !

2) why with relatively easy repair top flange and broken riser not replaced ? - a few days
..
3) why by using convential explosive +1000' in adjacent pipe well can be sealed ?

First and foremost is to focus on collection of prior and current oil spilled and spilling. This can be done now -

7/15/2010
Page 9 of 10

1) stop using dispersant. allowing oil to surface.

2) start using tankers/barges to collect in proximity of well – where are they?

Warning: As you may concur - We do not have time to wait for relief wells in August ( may be more like
November and may not work) , by that time the Gulf will be a dead sea, Florida beaches and Everglades will
be black (more like orange goo), oil/dispersant mix headed north to wipe out east coast killing all life in it's
path. There will be stench of rotting animal life and toxic air which will promote respiratory disease and
cancer. When there is a hurricane it will "paint" the inland with slime and goo which will then be unlivable -
We most stop those responsible for exacerbating this unmitigated global disaster NOW . God help us -
amen .

We all or shold all know that bp is liable for oil spilled in $$$ per barrel and that the amount is calculated
using the amount recovered – therefore the incentive is to recover as little as positive – this is parathenticle to
saving life of the gulf – which is priceless –
the monetary cost s/b based on estimating the total oil spilled – minus the amout which was recovered –
which would make collect and confine as much oil as possible BP’s incentive.

The information described herein is submitted for broadcast and/or publication - thank you

Sincerely,

Michael Gruters

Immediate action (fix) - The"riser pipe" or stack that fell to ocean floor is mounted with (6) hex bolts to a
mating flange at the top of the BOP, this would be replaced by a new riser and flange (see link 2) – making a
leak-less seal to the surface collection operation. This has been estimated to take only 8 hrs. with the new
parts in hand.

note: BS from BP claims no room for another collection tankers because "too crowded" ? - so they are now
going to burn it and pollute the atmosphere as well...

These suggestions are on record at EPA (see link 1) at BP engineering for over a month -

1) – Stop Leak Now (SLN) Simplest Fix – Replace old flange and broken (now cut) pipe at top of BOP
– has "(6) hex nuts",– with new flange and associated pipe to surface.Unscrewing "hex nuts" and
replacing with new outer flange. This is similar proceedure to when well was first installed (2001).
This should make non leaking connection to surface collection. Once again do not use dispersant
into leaking oil so can be collected by tankers at at surface – where are they ?

This could have been done after the smoke cleared (day 2) and this disaster avoided ...

p.s. It is unfathomable why this was not done.

2) – Oil Collection Now - using newley designed Oil Containment Rings OCR’s – Need to be installed Now

This will stop further damage and start to remove prior oil pollution. - also of course there should be a floatilla of
tankers/barges collecting surface and submerged oil - where are they ? If we collect 99% of the oil being
leaked – then bp can take time to kill the well.

Start to build a “oil collection ring” flotation miles in diameter which has large booms (100′ by 6′ diameters)
with deep aprons that zipper together as they extend deep(300′ or more) below the surface (this happens
physically as aprons on modules are zipped) and capture the rising oil leak – which is continually pumped
into tankers/barges – circumvent first ring with a second and so on as needed. Do not use any dispersant –

7/15/2010
Page 10 of 10

pump out water separation from collected oil. of all the things that BP does wrong - the use of dispersant is
the worst ! Stop it Today. Aside from the toxicity the collection and containment of oil from the surface is far
easier as to almost impossible submerged !

3) – Seal Well Now (SWN) – drill +1000' parallel proximity shaft – place proper amount of explosives – seal
new shaft – detonate !

conventional explosive are well understood and should be adequate to blow bedrock through a 21" shaft -
how about tunnels through mountains or Hover Dam !

suggested nuclear explosion is absolutely ludicrous and at least 1000 times overkill . This could fracture the
seabed floor collapsing into oil reserve and releasing 25,000 square miles of oil.
