[quote:Anonymous Coward 1288758:MV8yMTQxMjE2XzM2MTYwOTkwXzE3QzIzMThC] Just what is the life span of these blowout preventers? Salt water is corrosive, so I can't imagine them being structurally intact for the long haul. I just wonder where we will be decades or a century or two down the road. [/quote]
A natural gas well located approximately 50 miles east of Venice in the Gulf of Mexico is releasing gas uncontrolled and has been evacuated, according to a report today in Fuel Fix, an energy news website operated in part by the Houston Chronicle. The site reports 15 workers were evacuated from the Ensco 87 rig, which sits in 218 feet of water, after tests found natural gas had migrated from the 8300-foot well to a sand formation approximately 1100 feet below the seabed. This uncontrolled flow happened after a blowout preventer had been activated.
