The White House is totally off base expecting BP to pay the full salary losses of layed off oil industry workers in the Gulf of Mexico because of the White House's six months moratorium on deep water oil well drilling in the Gulf. Let's call a spade a spade here the White House is trying to lift their reputation, trying to pander for popular support, in this effort here to get BP to pay the salaries of these layed-off oil industry workers. The need for a moratorium here is not BP's fault it is the Federal Government's fault. The federal governemt should have anticipated blow-out preventers on deep water wells failing and they should have had a back-up system authorized by the regulations to protect the country from an economic catastrophe. The White House needs to get their "A" game up and running on getting this off-shore oil and gas well drilling indusrty back in business. Why does the moratorium have to be six months? Any person with claims of good judgment knows that ultimate solution to preventing such an out of control oil well in the future is that the blow out preventers on these wells will have to be redesigned so that the pipe potruding from the top of the preventer doesn't have to be cut if there is a leak in the pipe that connects from the preventer to the oil rig but rather this protruding pipe has a mechanical interface with the oil rig piping which can be mechanically separated and new no leak piping from the oil rig can be mechanically reattached to the preventer; and, the preventer has to be redesigned so as to be able to withstand much higher pressures than current specification so if a blow out occurrs and the preventer shearing mechanism fails feed hoses can be attached to the preventer and well mud can be pumped from a surface ship at high pressure to stop oil and natural gas flowing out the well. Common sense indicates that it will be longer than six months before such new preventers are ready to be put into service and so the only responsible course for the government is to require deep-water oil and gas drillers to drill two relief wells at the same time as they drill a deep water well so if there is an uncontrolled leak on a well it can be plugged in a timely manner using the relief well. Further, in light of the true environmental catastrophe of a deep water well leak like the deep water horizon's, in the future even with new blow-out preventers drillers by government regulation should always be required to drill at least one relief well when drilling a deep water well. The answer for the oil industry worker lay-off issue is for the White House to dramatically shorten the time-period of this moratorium and just require for all deep water wells, two relief wells have to be drilled at the same time as the original well is being drilled!
