    MY father was a Petroleum engineer or consultant, we called him a drilling engineer. BTW I can't believe I forgot about the tool pusher, anyway I am going by my fathers experience as well as my own. Most of what I say is overseas operations as well as offshore. I do know that the oil patch has changed dramatically sense I or my father has done it, but you are correct and it looks to me that you had a hand in it at one time.

    Man, I've tripped more pipe than I care to remember. I started out in worm corner roughneckin' for Marine Drilling out of Corpus Christi, on J. Storm 5. A jack-up rig. Then on Penrod 82. Another jack-up but way more modern. Then I was a completion specialist (service hand) for National Well Control for years (cushy job.)

    I was talking to my good friend the other day who is a company man for Chevron and he told me I wouldn't even recognize the drill floor anymore. No chain. No tongs. No brake handle. Everything is all computers and robotics on the modern rigs these days.

    I'm just old oil trash I suppose. I was the best at throwing chain left-handed and today's roughneck (or maybe better called powderpuff) probably hasn't ever seen connections made with a chain. I would love to go visit a modern day rig just to see how far technology has advanced.

    It's GREAT to be me. --- "45% liberal/55% conservative"

    Deep down I have a gut feeling that a drilling engineer miscalculated the cement mixture, this is usually the cause according to those in the know. Non the less I will wait and see for the final outcome. That said BP will be the one that is ultimately responsible regardless.
    Mike Williams, Chief Electronics Technician in charge of the rig's computers and electrical systems. He was one of the last people to escape off the rig. In this thread I created he says the Horizon's problems started months earlier. Watch all the videos and read the interview.

    It would be interesting to hear what you and your dad have to say about what Williams said happened.

    Meanwhile everyone in Congress is kissing BP's ass.

    I just heard that the GOP is trying to work out a way to flip the cost of the cleanup off of BP's hands and lay it in the laps of the taxpayers.

    Does BP own this country at this point?

    YouTube- Should we just call the USA...BPA?

    Man that was a really hackneyed first post. Dumb as dirt, oy vey I hope that is not emblematic of what we can expect of post # 2 onward from you. Somehow, I suspect it is.
