Not trying to whip a dead horse, but the arificial lift comes in as depletion drops bottomhole pressure or the well starts making water where it can no longer overcome the hydrostatic ..

For readers, I doubt that there was sabotage based upon the "field" rumors that always get out in the oilfield. Where there might be 6 stages of separation in the world there are only two in the oilfield, so what I heard is probably accurate.

I am thoroughly convinced that the current regime cannot stand the energy industry and do intend to create a crisis since they have very little control of oil, gas or coal or nuclear, the only real energy generators that exist, renewables account for less than 5%. They will use this incident causedby the incompetence by the BP idiots as part of the plan to create an energy crisis. Shutting down drilling in the gulf will accelerate the timing of the crisis after they pass Cap & Trade.

I can hardly wait for the senatorial show trials as they ask the energy industry (after showing pictures of frozen or baked grandmas )" Why weren't providing energy when we wouldn't give you a permit and you were losing your ass due to changes in tax policy?"

Billyjack, thanks for all of the inside information. From what I gather, a blow out occurred at a particular depth - so what would have caused the explosion on board the ship?

Yes, this is clear proof that Obama is trying to turn the US into a police state

Turning? I think that happened a long time ago. Although a civilian police force larger than the US military would certainly cement the plan.

All of the work to run production casing occurs inside a riser pipe that is attached to the well. and runs 5000' up to the rig. I doubt that this riser is designed to control excessive pressures. When the well kicked the oil and gas flowed up this riser to the rig floor where something sparked causing the fire & explosion. I would have thought that even this riser would have had a control mechanism that would have diverted the flow to a flare stack away from the rig, but the flow may have exceeded its capacity. When things start going to hell with a "kick"(sudden excessive pressure at the surface) there is usually alot of confusion. My experience is everyone runs like hell and the only people left on the floor is me the "toolpusher" (drilling contractor's rig supervisor) and if your lucky the driller.

I should have labeled my answer with "sarcasm".


Seriously, you believe Obama turned the US into a police state? And you believe it's worse than under Bush? You know, the guy who introduced the patriot act, wiretaps without warrants, remember the Republican National Convention during Bush's presidency? If I remember correctly he shut down an entire block...and they had "a few" SWAT members too


People have short memories! They didn't stand up when Bush trampled their freedom, but because Obama's not Republican (or white), they are easily tricked (by Palin & Co) to believe Obama's worse than Bush. Guess what, you are being manipulated by the same people who supported Bush's mess until the end! You are puppets of big business.

Do you like Glenn Beck's informative messages? Like the one where he gives you the tip to buy gold because the US $ will collapse...you know, just before his gold infomercial.
So if Beck tells you Obama turns the US into a police state, you believe that obvious conman who only cares about money? YOU'RE A PUPPET!!

Do you like Palin? You know, the woman who cut her time in office short to make more money doing other things? The woman who wrote a book so full of lies no one with a brain can take it serious? The woman who makes her living PLAYING the average hockey mom from next door just to appeal to your emotions...your emotions that make it so easy to steer you into any direction she wants? YOU'RE A PUPPET!!

Do you believe Fox News when they criticize the main stream media...all the while pretending they're not part of the main stream media? Are you gullible enough to believe them? Do you really believe their channel's a news channel instead of a propaganda tool (like MSN)? YOU ARE A PUPPET!!

If you seriously believe Obama's done anything even close as bad as what Bush did during his 8 years, you should stop and look at the facts and figures instead of repeating mindless propaganda Beck/Palin/etc shove down your throat (not really, some of you are eagerly swallowing like baby birds).

So which is worse, an Obama puppet cheering on socialism and wild big government spending us out of liberties and a future, or a Bush puppet who thinks Bush was not a liberal in conservative clothing and supports giving up liberty in exchange for safety?

I believe Obama mis-spoke. He meant to put SWAT in quotes, as in 'tiger team' of experts.

I completely agree. I went and looked up the definition of SWAT to make sure I understood what it meant:...


Yeah, but...

The term "SWAT team" has come to mean any expert emergency team sent into any situation to handle a mess.

IT Shops have "SWAT teams" to deal with problem projects, Accountancy firms have "SWAT teams" to send to clients to deal with serious problems.

It has become a generic term, like Kleenix or Aspirin. It no long means just what it did when it was coined.

So the SWAT teams are trained oil rig engineers?

I think they're there to defend them.
