Stopping undersea oil leaks

When the deepwater horizon incident occurred I sent the following suggestion to British Petroleum and Washington:

"An explosion near the well head on the ocean floor could remove the blowout preventer and shear the pipe off at the sea bed.  A second explosion to one side but near the exposed pipe could push soil over the well and seal it.  It might also be possible to crush/crimp the pipe."
