Re: [hreg] Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill
Todays news, BP said the "spill" has been significantly reduced due to the applicationof a chemical. Does any body know what that chemical is? What will be the environmentalimpact of that chemical? What that chemical will do to the marione biology and the foodchain that ultimately gets to us? Who approved that it is safe in these regards, or, do theyneed any approval to dump any thing in the sea? To replace one devil by another is NOT asolution.

Date: Monday, May 3, 2010, 5:26 PMThan you Nancy,I rather thought it may be a long shot. I have found also what you have said is true with BP, such strange bedfellows it seems. The oil owned by BP the accident owned by Transocean and the boo boo with the concrete Halliburton. The sad state is that we still have a major oil spill/leak that is getting larger, weather permitting it will stay off the coast and the Texas coast a while longer. Thank you all for your pertinent responses. I truly hope we (collectively as a nation) learn a lot more from this and eradicate any future incidents like this one. To err is human, to not learn from our mistakes is a bitter tragedy. Thank you all for your time.
- Same problem - a disagreement on the rig about the better course of action. The "company man" I'm not sure which one vetoed the driller's recommendation (on IXTOC) to cut the string above the drill collars and let the collars fall to the bottom for recovery after the well was brought under control. At least that is what a driller told me on a rig one night in Montana.The BOP shear rams wouldn't then and won't now cut through drill collars.Human error (Major Screw-up) seems to be common to a lot of major disasters. I believe that the problems on Horizon extends through many years of government regulations, "industry recommended practices", well design, events on the rig leading up to the fatal night.There are several interviews on youtube in anyone can stand to watch.As sad as it may be - this will happen again if we don't learn from this.Ed Sarlls, Jr.----- Original Message -----From: William & Cynthia StangeSent: Saturday, June 05, 2010 2:09 PMSubject: Re: [hreg] Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill - Great BP VideoAll,I am being careful not to encite a debate but this is too good not to share.
