See original post here: *DEVELOPING* Feds admit formation may have collapsed around bottom of wellbore — This is why annulus is blocked, not cement (VIDEO)
According to National Incident Commander Thad Allen, the two possible reasons that are being discussed regarding what is blocking the annulus are:
During the cementing phase of the static kill, cement went down the length of the 13,000+ foot well, made a u-turn back up into the annulus, hardening in place.
There has been “a collapse in the formation” around the Macondo well.
