ROV deployed to Gulf platform where hydrocarbon sheen was reported — Relief well being planned
Apache probes sheen near platform, Oil and Gas Journal, January 18, 2011:

A hydrocarbon sheen was reported Jan. 16 during plugging and abandonment operations on East Cameron Block 278 Platform B in 168 ft of water 95 miles south of Cameron, La., Apache Corp. said.

[link to www.floridaoilspilllaw.com]

Cause and source of the release are under investigation. Remotely operated vehicles and spill response vessels were dispatched to the platform.

Apache expects information from the ROV will help determine the source.
Apache shut-in due to a possible gas leak, One India, January 19, 2011:

Apache Corporation has reported a suspected natural gas leak at one of its Gulf of Mexico platforms…

It has consequently shut-in some of its nearby pipelines. …

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE) has informed that Apache had deployed a remotely operated vehicle “to evaluate the safety issues associated with re-boarding the platform”.

It added that “planning has begun for the drilling of a relief well” in the event that the platform cannot be safely re-boarded.

It's ok the Moran is in the area.

On a side note I don't see to much else on station in the area, they must be transponders off or marine traffic is running it's public filters. :)

The day after DWH went off I went online to do some research about this field... apparently all the GOM fields are actually the top layer of a large abiotic oil precursor reserve that extends up into the New Madrid area, etc.

The people who know this for sure aren't talking.

For now, I'll file this under common GOM industrial accident... the real DOOM is still the VOC that can't be taken out of the environment that's swirling around the GOM and out into the oceans...

Of course, I'm open minded... about this Doom in particular... damned

 Quoting: Least Servant

I was reading about waterflood projects, 3 steps usually,

1. Sea Water is chlorinated.
2: Oxygen is removed.
3: Sulfate-reducting Bacteria is filtered.

All this to prevent microbes from making H2S and turning a well sour, the interesting thing is that the bugs are usually back in no time( 6 months to a year ), doing their business, even coming back stronger. Are they spreading info through underground hydrocarbon channels like they do through underground aquifers in rural areas ?

Makes one wonder a little, when you consider how microbes share information with plasmids about how to defeat antibiotics, they're probably growing just as keen to oil company practices.

This is probably just due to another slack operation in the GOM, but definitly going to follow this one...at least it's in shallow water this time.

Any industry that has been a big part of floating this world for the past 150 years is going to have it's share of dirty secrets, industry bona fides who will never talk, and a host of mercenaries who are too well paid or too broke to do anything.

INHO Abiotic oil IS biotic. Fossils it aint. But just maybe it is formed by living microbes deep in the crust much like yeast creates alcahol. Hence the pressure and refilling of old wells. And life has been found where previously not believed could exist.

The excretion of many many different creatures is burnable.

Was the Deepwater Horizon explosion simply a slack operation? I think there's more too it.

Perhaps but the hole in the helipad is a red herring.

You will notice the paint on the helipad has been burned off (should be bright green like near the bottom of the pic), that means the helipad was getting ambient heat from the fire... given the combustion point of metals potentially used on such a helipad and the construction, I am satisified that the rig fire could have burned such a hole.

On the flip side, I have not heard any convincing arguments about how such a hole could have led to the disaster... the laser argument is just silly, IMHO. hmm

If you want to look at some deliberate cause of the 4/20 blowout, you might want to consider some industrial espionage on the part of one of the BP executives there for the "party"... I am sure they had nearly unrestricted access to the computer systems of the drilling rig prior to the blowout... in combination with other factors.

If the edge of the pad nearest the fire was melted away, I would agree with you. However, this is not the case. Yes the paint is clearly burnt around the hole. Something caused it. As for the idea of beam weapons being silly, I'll just say that they certainly do exist and nothing should be ruled out until the facts are known.

I think the SWAT team story is either false or misreported... in any case, there isn't much a SWAT team could have done on the rig after the blowout. The whole thing would have become an oven by the time they got there. If they called it to the rescue boats, there's any number of reasons why they would have been on scene... the Oil and Natural Gas Industry are big players, obviously... contingency plans exists for just about everything, I don't know enough about them to sensibly comment on this.

Regarding the material construction of the helipad, not all metals melt all soupy like you think before their combustion point. ;)

Is a natural gas leak in the GOM worst than an oil spill? I mean, is it more dangerous? Gas, I know, can explode. I have no idea how it would act in water though... ? Both are bad for wildlife I would think. And how do you clean that up???

Poor animals and fish... didn't enough of them die from that big BP spill?
