When we last left our ongoing story of why The Brightest Minds in Govt. Science were giving BP permission to keep ****ing around playing with their broken oil well, instead of completing the Bottom Kill cementing, BP was observed to be moving Giant Tools towards the Macondo 252 Deepwater Horizon oil well again, then Adm. Allen had to give out matching narrative after a few news cycles as to what the fooking h*ll they were really doing.
We’ll do the bottom kill when we’re ready, Harry. – Adm. Thad “Patton” Allen
They wanted to look inside the old BOP, and go fishing and pull the old drill pipe out of the well bore. Bottom kill, schmottom kill, the Lawyers need evidence to sue each other for the next 2 decades.
So far, they took the very top lid off the new BOP and Stacking Ram they mounted on the old one, and peered inside, and noticed that the brand new BOP and 3 blade Stacking Ram had 1 Shear Ram that was stuck in a half open, half shut position so they couldn’t get down and look into the other parts.
Yes, their brand new BOP toy wasn’t working already.
Okay. No problemo. Just spend a week trying to jimmy the the thing open again.
