No shite. Don't even know what happened and someone already had the tool to prevent it. Wait that's right we have SEMS to prevent it.



well fricktard.. there is a tool to prevent what happened, they just took a shortcut. SEMS is a regulation that dates what you do in the gulf.

I posted this in another thread, but isn't the proper protocol is to bleed the line, and shut in the area if hot work was going to be occuring?

We don't have all the facts yet but according to some reports, the Platform was not flowing. My guess is that they cut into a line that wasn't flushed properly, if at all.

May I ask what type of tool are we discussing? To cut into the line like what is being described as the cause one would have to first isolate the segment, flush with a solution and most probably render inert by pumping in nitrogen or filling with seawater and leaving full during the cut. No flashpoint.

Well fricktard since you like to use that term.

Apparently you don't know shite. So you have a tool that will prevent someone from taking shortcuts.

And you are even a bigger fricktard for thinking you know what SEMS is.

A guy on 870 (a guest... not a caller) said it was producing at the time. It was down for maintenance.
