Really neat pics! I wish we'd run something like that! Not! Usually they cap them, and if that doesn't work they'll use tnt and blast the well shut. I watched a documentary on the oil rig fires in Iraq during the first war and the company(s) that was hired to cap them all. Really cool stuff. Not your ordinary fire supression job!
