    Statoil Dealing With ‘Unstable Well’ at Gullfaks C

    May 21 (Bloomberg) -- Statoil ASA partially evacuated platform C at the Gullfaks field in the North Sea after pressure in a well destabilized, shutting production at the facility and the nearby Tordis field.

    “There is a stable situation at the platform,” Gisle Johanson, a company spokesman, said by phone today. “We have an unstable pressure situation in this well. There’s no leak, no blowout and no injuries.”
    Take note, BP. You could learn something from this.

    Good idea. I think the American people need to vote BP out of the Gulf.

    Was this an identical situation except for the way the two crews treated it? If not, then I don't see why it stands to reason that BP should learn anything from this.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    You are right. This is not an identical situation. Their blowout preventers worked.

    Would be the Brits, since BP is British owned

    You can however nationalize Exxon and all the other US oil companies and vote them out if you want!

    Actually, their BOP's were never activated, since there was no blowout, per the article you posted. "Unstable pressure", comes with the territory, when ****ing with an oil well. The source doesn't say if it's gradient pressure, downhole pressure, or whatever. Looks more like, "government run oil drilling can do it better", propaganda to me.

    The government running drilling operations in the GOM? That's a laugh riot!

    Sorry, but I'll take my chances with the private sector.

    Yea rather have a private company stock pile billions for its few stockholders than have a state company stock pile hundreds of billions for the future of the country. You do know that Norway has the second largest sovereign fund in the world right? Unlike private companies, they do not spend billions on bonuses for failure, or rob the country of hundreds of billions in bailouts. I did heard that they ordered pizza on the companies dime once in a while.. oh the scandal!

    We did take chances with your vaunted, so efficiently run, ever so highly skilled, "private sector." In return, your "experts" have given us the largest ecological disaster in the history of this Nation, that will destroy untold amounts of our coastline for decades, if not forever.

    Brilliant choices you make.
