Depth is the problem. The North Sea has an average depth of around 300 feet. The lowest point is 2300 feet and they don't have wells there from what I can gather. Deepwater Horizon is over a mile down. If it were in shallower water the general consensus is they'd have had this thing capped weeks ago.
