I want names....and country of origin.... of ALL engineers hired by BP. ALL who worked on the rig and ALL who had the authority to make any decision. TINFOIL hat/
You’re barking up the wrong tree. THIS WAS NOT A TERRORIST ACT.
This drilling was snake bit from the start. The orginal attempt to drill this test well was started back in the Oct of 09 by another drilling platform. After three weeks of drilling gas got into the well causing a kick. Then two weeks later a hurricane damaged the drilling platform and it had to be towed in for repairs.
BP started drilling again in Jan. 2010 with another rig Deepwater Horizon. On Mar. 8th they had gas seeping back in the well. A measuring device was lower into the bore to attempt to determine what was happening. That device got stuck at 13,000 ft and had to be abandoned.
They cemented 2,000 ft of the bottom of the bore hole and resumed drilling again at an angle. They then encountered brittle rock which the mud crack and they lost a lot of mud. Finally they reached the reservior and now we see the out come of trying to secure the well during the final days.
I hardly think anyone in particular was sabotaging the propect but do think ineptness and cutting corners did play into the final outcome.
