“Macondo” — from the fictitious cursed town in the novel One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.   The well was named by this winning entry in a BP employee contest. (wiki)

The hydrocarbons that were sought lay 4000-4500 m below the sea floor.
That is 2.8 miles.

It would be like starting at the Empire State Building and going south, ending around the Wall St. Stock Exchange.

They never passed 14th street when the blowout occurred.

Go see the new Deepwater Horizon movie.

    I second Christina’s suggestion to see Deepwater Horizon. Without at all being preachy it is at heart an environmental movie, that I found to be extremely well done & exciting.

    Very interesting, Christina. But confusing and intriguing. At some point, I hope to understand what this is all about. Where are we? Where do we want to be? What is the goal? Who is on the team? Steve
