So I know the chances are slim...but I know a few of you work on the rigs down south...hope you're all ok...
My thoughts exactly, If fuck1ing pisses me off to see the stupid shit posted on this subject trying to turn it into a political matter. I work the oilfield and feel insulted everyday reading the shit the media post not knowing a dam thing there talking about. Eleven men lost there lives trying to contain the blowout and save the the other 115 men onboard, There true heroes because they knew there fate staying up there to fight the blowout. No one wants to talk about that because it can't be twisted and turned into conspiracy or bad news.It's nice to see people and friends with something nice to say:yay:
The job we do is not a easy one everyday we risk our lives to bring these resources out of the ground 24/7, I was on a yahoo msg board, and some of the stuff I was reading just made me want to ***** Slap someone to hear all the conspiracies about how this was just a stunt to raise gas prices! The only thing we need to worry with now is containing the blow out, and pray for the family and friends of the 11 Roughnecks we lost!
My thoughts and prayers are with those lost on the Deep Water Horizon!
My first vivid memory of doing something with my dad that I thought was guy stuff, was sleeping all night in the dog house next to a well being drilled. I was 3 or 4 years old. Those guys are like family with each other because they spend so much time together away from their families. They're tough SOBs and can figure out how to do anything with a few simple tools. They were also the only oilfield guys that my dad ever left me with knowing that they'd take good care of me. I have fond memories of them and their lessons. I have an attitude that I'll figure anything out, no matter what, that I learned from them.My dad worked on rigs most of his life.
I was always thankful he made it home, but to me he was Superman.

Please enlighten us with your age. It would help me deal with the retarded crap you post everyday. If your young then that would explain the lack of knowledge, If your old it could only be dementia.Blowouts are from higher hydrostatic pressure in the hole than above it. Oil, gas, drilling fluids all cause it. I watched the worst well fire in Tennessee history and the culprit was oil pressure, with no gas at all,
Your trying to hard with this and not making a bit of sense. Your entire post is utter BS contributing to the large amount of ignorant and false statements confusing people. There is no oil pressure without gas, NONE.
combined with a BOP that was too small for the job. The biggest problem is that BOPs come in different sizes.
The biggest problem is not BOP's coming in different sizes, There are only a limited number of sizes with even less options for there pressure rating, Please enlighten me where you are getting your information. BOP's are not on shelf or mass produced items, There multimillion dollar pieces of equipment that are selected by engineers for each time it is used.
If you encounter much, much greater pressures than you anticipated, then have too small a BOP, you're screwed with current technology.
Again your posting information that is complete BS, BOP's are rated for more pressure ever possible of anticipation. Current technology... You have no idea.
BOPs will fail no matter what because you can never know what is in the hole. Thus, is some rare cases, like the one I saw in TN where the well produced over 2,000 BBL per day with no pump, you cannot possibly dream of a big enough BOP to contain it. That well caught on fire and drained straight into a National Recreation Area river, on fire. It was ugly.
This here proves you have no clue to what you are posting. The BOP is not containment equipment.
The "fix" is going to require major overhauls in laws and technology. The technology has to come first.
I am an engineer and I've been in the oil and gas business my entire life. Everything you just posted is in fact wrong and obviously straight out of Google. Every single statement. You are a young, arrogant, and ignorant man.Please enlighten us with your age. It would help me deal with the retarded crap you post everyday. If your young then that would explain the lack of knowledge, If your old it could only be dementia.
