    It does seem that way. My back is getting pretty weary these days, and it's not solely due to age.

    Re: Halliburton Could Be at Fault for Oil Spill

    Terry Lambert, who works for ADTI, had a son who was one of the BP Company reps on the Horizon when the incident occurred. Here's what he sent me.

    TALKED TO MY SON, HE IS AT HOME NOW, AND IN GOOD SHAPE, WHAT I WAS TOLD WAS THEY HAD SET A 9-5/8 TAPERED PRODUCTION LINER, DID THEIR CEMENT JOB, HAD POSITIVE TESTED, AND ALSO NEGITIVE TESTED, THEY WERE GOING TO SET A BALANCED PLUG AROUND 3000' BELOW THE WELL HEAD WHICH WOULD BE AT ABOUT 8000', THE SENIOR COMPANY MAN WANTED TO SET THE BALANCED PLUG IN MUD, BUT THE ENGINEERS WANTED TO DISPLACE WITH WATER PRIOR TO SETTING BALANCED PLUG, SO THEY DISPLACED FROM 3000' BELOW MUD LINE, AND WERE GETTING READY TO SET PLUG. THE DERRICKMAN CALLED THE DRILLER AND SAID HE NEEDED HELP, HE HAD MUD GOING EVERYWHERE, AND ABOUT THIS TIME THE DRILL FLOOR DISAPEARED, THEN THERE WAS AN EXPLOSION, THEN A SECOND EXPLOSION.

    THE FLAMES ARE NOW GOING STRAIGHT UP ALLOWING EVACUATION OF MEN, THEN YOU KNOW THE REST.

    THE HANDS THAT ARE MISSING ARE THE ONES THAT WERE ON THE DRILL FLOOR AND PUMP ROOM. YOU KNOW THE RESULTS OF THAT. THIS ALL TOOK PLACE IN LESS THAN A MINUTE.

    RIG WAS EVACUATED IN ABOUT 25 MINUTES.

    IT IS BELIVED THAT THE SEAL ASSEMBLY AT THE WELL HEAD GAVE UP. IF THAT IS THE CASE AND THEY WOULD HAVE SET THE BALANCED PLUG IN MUD THEN DISPLACED THE RISER, IT WOULD ONLY HAVE DELAYED WHAT HAPPENED BY A COUPLE OF HOURS.

    GAS MUST HAVE CHANNELLED THROUGH THE CEMENT JOB AND UP THE BACK SIDE OF THE
    9-5/8 PRODUCTION CASING.

    The Cementing was to have been performed by Haliburton.

    Don't forget that this well was 1 mile underwater, and another 4-5 miles to the oil, from the bottom of the Gulf. Wells this deep are a somewhat new phenomenon, where the limits of how a well can be sealed are more easily approached.

    There is a multi-billion (2.7 billion I think) dollar fund set up for this type of accident to pay for cleanup, loss of income, and repair of equipment. It is paid for by a 5 cent per barrel of oil tax among other sources.

    Re: Halliburton Could Be at Fault for Oil Spill

    Jujuman13;

    Is Terry's son a step son by any chance? Because neither of the BP's representative’s last name was Lambert.... Another thing, since the author gave particular information on the well bore by displacing from 3000ft below the mud line to surface, why did he think that the blow-out accrue from the annulus side of the well and not from the well bore? That's what through me for a loop.

    There's where you're wrong. Blowouts like this cost oil companies along with the service companies that get drug into the liability, billions of dollars. I would much rather the oil companies be responsible for blowout safety; alot more than some government bureaucrat. Letting the oil companies do it is like the farmer gaurding the hen house.

    BTW, it didn't take long for a, "it's Halliburton's fault", thread to get cranked up.

    Let me clue ya'll into something: Halliburton isn't liable for anything concerning this blowout. If anyone gets drug into the fracus, it'll be FMC, because they're the ones that built the blowout preventer.

    I knew it, I knew it all along, the evil and sinister Dick Cheney and his pals over at the equally evil and sinister Halliburton are behind this deliberate oil leak that is ruining the gulf of mexico.

    And somewhere George Bush is sitting on his deck drinking a cold one while breaking out in an evil snicker.
