Response to Re: In the last 30 yrs., there have been more air crashes than oil spills.
we did. a well head. it malfunctioned. Why? Once we know that, we can take better care NEXT time. This one, is water under the bridge - so to speak.
There is a well head that closes on loss of comms. Not used here. But then, what failed here and caused an explosion, fire, sunk rig, and 11 deaths? Don't forget them.
Can we do better? Always. At some point the costs excede the benefit. Probably not so in this case. This looks like one heck of a field they found down there. Let's go get it, once we plug this leak.
