The Corrugated Steel Pipe Institute (CSPI) is weighing in on the debate over how to cap the BP oil spill.

We can make very long lengths (100 metre), couple them into a 1500 metre long length, float it over the well head and then sink it while it hangs on vertical cables.” Similar rigs have worked for water intakes on power plants. Penny envisions lowering [...]
