I am really starting to wonder about the entire procedure over the last 2 1/2 months. As I stated in a previous post I didn't understand why they didn't unscrew the flange and make up another BOP & that there must be a problem I wasn't aware of. Now they are doing the exactly what I said. The puzzling part is why they didn't do this 2 months ago. There is no information they have now that they didn't have before.
I find it hard to believe that there isn't an engineer in BP that wasn't screaming about doing this procedure from day 1.
I agree with the "comedy of errors" though it will be a while before I can laugh at it, but I don't see what the political response motivation could possibly be.
Although, I think the blow out was caused by a comedy of errors, I now start wondering if the aftermath hasn't hasn't been orchestrated to elicit a political response.
