Project Description

A generally applicable, well containment and intervention capability is a necessary component of an effective system for quickly responding to future deepwater blowouts. Reducing the time required to cap a subsea blowout has the greatest potential for reducing the environmental impact and economic costs associated with such an event. Other collection and clean up responses do not address the fundamental issue of stopping the pollution. The importance of a sealing well containment capability was demonstrated by the capping stack used on the Macondo blowout.
