    Yes we do. We knew this very early on.

    A high concentration of hydrates began flowing up the pipe. This caused alarm and the emergency BOP control was activated, but the BOP itself failed to execute, allowing the hydrates up the pipe, which then exploded at sea-level air-pressure and temperature, killing 11 instantly. Secondary fires spread rapidly, compromising the structure of the rig, causing it to sink.

    Encountering hydrates is typical, not surprising at all. What was different was how concentrated this deposit of hydrates were, which was still predicted given the depth they were drilling to. It was expected.

    Halliburton's part in this is that it was Halliburton's responsibility to maintain the BOP. It was a Halliburton BOP, it had failed inspections and was used anyway. Halliburton knew about this in advance but let it slide. Had Halliburton properly maintained the BOP then we would never have heard of the Deepwater Horizon.

    BP is also culpable because they knew the BOP failed inspection. Transocean, the owner of the rig, may not have known about the BOP because they simply build and lease rigs to companies who then go out and drill. It's like renting a truck from Enterprise and then not properly securing a load; Enterprise doesn't monitor your activities, they just lease you the truck.
    Another correction: the water from the "C-boats" caused the rig to sink. Engineers had told the Coast Gaurd to let it burn, but they wouldn't listen snd forced thr C-boats to keep spraying water, filling the hull with water.

    Halliburtons cementing was involved in a major blowout in SE Asia prior to Deepwater.

    You didn't know how the blow out happened, so I told you, and now you're mad because you thought you were an expert. What's this thread supposed to be about anyway? Halliburton bad? I ask again, why should anyone care?

    If this thread is about 'Halliburton bad' then that's on topic.

    I knew the multiple versions of the story of about what happened. You think that the BOP was built, owned and serviced by Halliburton and now you're mad because you blew it. You also think that the rig sank because of the fire, which is also wrong.

    So when the private sector does wrong one cannot criticize the private sector even if they are "pro" or "anti" private sector?
