Gulf of Mexico. Ku Sierra platform. Near Campeche (México)   They're trying to put a fire out in the middle of the water...with water?

Embarrassing! I would never stoop to using a cheap pun in such a serious situation. Let's just spray it works. Oil's well that ends well. (And there's probably some more like that coming down the pipe.)

Um, deep fried fish anyone ?  Octopus steak maybe.

No, they are using the pressurized water to try and push the oil back to the surface fire, so it doesn't spread out.

One thing to consider is that even if all the oil "got away" it would be like dropping ONE DROP of oil in a bathtub full of water, then dipping a sewing needle in the water, and what sticks to the needle is the REAL environmental impact.

Remember, at one time the entire Earth was covered with volcanoes, and extremely high pressure gas vents of methane and other poisons, at the same time Mars had an oxygen atmosphere, and oceans.

All things change.

Or @JW Insider's classic puns.... like..... "That's a hell of a problem there!" or something similar. LOL
