Re: “Plugging the BP Leak: What's Your Idea?

my idea is to use the incredible pressure at 1 mile deep to compress a swage like clamp. the ocean pressure itself would keep constant clamping force on the seal.The seal would start with a water tight cylinder, inside would be a cavity and at the center a compressable rubber seal with a soft metal outer layer. at depth, and over the existing drill pipe the valve on the cylinder would open allowing seawater and pressure into the void compressing the swage clamp.
