Interesting to me is the lack of story on what is probably casing damage/failure below the BOP. I've read they've confirmed damage below the BOP, but I find a rather surprising lack of reporting about potential consequences.
If there's casing damage, with oil forcing out into the surrounding sediments I'd think total collapse of the well head a very real possibility, which of course means there's no stopping it until all the oil is released. I've read comments about people saying it looks like the BOP is leaning.
