Good thing we have all these oilfield experts posting. What would we do without their knowledge and problem solving skills?

We don't have all the facts yet but according to some reports, the Platform was not flowing.




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


Wells were not producing. Everything was shut-in with downhole SCSSV's closed until construction was finished. They were about to start coming online.

re: 9 airlifted, two missing after Gulf platform explosion **UPDATED**


I was once on a platform that had a sister platform in the field catch on fire. They were completely offline and welding on a skimmer. The fire watch guy on the sump deck below the welder was sitting on a skid next to the sump. He left to take a shite over the rail and didn't tell anyone. While he was shitting slag fell down into the sump area and caught an old rag bucket on fire. The fire watch comes back from shitting and the bucket caught the sump skid on fire. The platform had been drained but they had not completely drained the sump. The entire platform was engulfed in flames in minutes.

That's why a shitty helper should never be a fire watch!

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.


You are right.. I have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about My husband does because he's been doing offshore work for 25 years. He manages workers on rigs in the gulf as well as several different countries and I'm sure he knows more about his job than you do. I was quoting him.

We have a friend who was TERRIBLY TERRIBLY burned in a rig explosion when he was like 24 ... so probably 25 or so years ago.

There was some type of explosion and all I was told is that everyone in front of him died ... not sure what they were doing but his wife who I'm friends with was 19 at the time and had to do all of the skin cleanings etc once he was discharged from the hospital.

He is such a nice guy ... half of his face is relatively disfigured ... just terrible.

Prayers for all involved ... I've been to burn units and God, it's a place that if I never go back for work purposes, it'll be fine with me.

Do you even read what you type?

ByteMe asked earlier

But you keep thinking that you have a magic tool that could have prevented this accident. Do you have magic beans that you sell too?

I don't know what happened and it appears that a human error was made. So having a tool in place to stop that human error is "SEMS" which is what I said sarcastically. Our government has mandated that everyone use this BS which is what it is. I know a few things about SEMS I was part of the committee that wrote RP75. When RP 75 was written it was only intended to be a recommended practice.

And I am sure that your husband knows more about his job than I do. Or maybe I am your husbands boss. You sound like just the dumb cunt that would be married to one of my employees.

My husbands company has a tool used to prevent this type of accident.. yes. If you would like to contact him or visit his office I'm sure he will be happy to show it to you. He has guys in Africa and in Israel as well as in the gulf. His company is world wide. All I was doing was quoting some of the things he has told me.

You are definitely not my husbands boss, he has more class. I'm sure "your" employees would be thrilled to know what you think of their wives.

I know this tool. It's called a cold cut casing saw or travel saw. Used to operate this and other tools similar when I was on the 24hr call out side of the business. It straps with chains around the diameter of the pipe and additionally it bevels the cut. Very slow, very cumbersome tool but works though not 100% guaranteed to prevent anything. We ain't gonna know till the investigation is complete. Isolation with a plumbers plug is the only other thing I can think of when you speak isolation of work area segment.

Not a cold cut casting saw. It's called a pneumatic clamshell cutter.
His company has patented technology for pipe isolation and are the only company that has it. They also have patented isolation and well test tooling.

TigerFred.. my husband will be at the game tomorrow if you would like to meet up with him.

Who cares about what it's called or who has the bigger cork stopper, people have loved ones severely hurt or lost. Have a little sympathy. Have some heart and respect for those who are suffering.

Who said I didn't have sympathy and respect for those who are suffering? I have many family members who work on platforms and I can't imagine what they are going through. I said a prayer for all involved as soon as I heard of this. BUT, if there were something out there that could help prevent this.. wouldn't you want to know?
