Excellent initiative Steve. You are right. There has to be someone(s) out there with a practical solution ...
With what little I know about it, I actually liked the first concept but thought the sharp necking at the top would cause probs, which it did; high rates of compression/expansion together with the actual gases coming up with the oil … I would have thought they would have designed something that gradually restricted/guided the flow to accommodate that effect …. I also thought they would try to construct a valve on the seabed around the opening and like on land (I know. It’s 2mi deep!), gradually shut it off … they’ve prob thought that through and rejected it …

Just called BP, suggested they formulated the problem on the engineer's lists (including this one) and provided an email address to send the ideas. They promised to call back - we'll see.
Anything is poss with the will. Canada has an indiv in Toronto somewhere who has access to surface vacuum ships but the experts obviously don't need the help.
