Oil Blow Out Preventer Pressure Gauge

Florida Oil Spill Blow Out Preventer Pressure Gauge
Pressure Gauge as of July 15, 2010 at 11:00 am
Florida Oil Spill .com has been monitoring operations this morning and notes a visible pressure gauge on the new device placed atop the old Blow Out Preventer BOP. We wondered for weeks how they were monitoring the oil pressures of tens of thousands of pounds per square inch. 

This morning on the PBS Live Feed, we found what appears to be an oil  pressure measuring device. The photo is below. It appears to read between 25,000 and 30,000 pounds per square inch (psi).
