Blown gasket occurs to the Blow Out Preventer being installed on Deep Horizon platform - they did not notify MMS - against policy. No action taken when discovered.
Subcontractor on rig Halliburton notified Obama’s Mineral Management Services (MMS) that BP was using cement (mud) around the casing improperly against norm standards and below industry safety levels.. Obama’s appointed head of MMS (a Harvard community organizer attorney with no oil experience) over ruled Halliburton’s objection and granted BP a permit to continue.
Halliburton once again objects to BP using only a single lined casing. Wells at this depth and pressure require a minimum of 4 layers. All other 5,000 ft high pressure, ALL OTHER wells in gulf use this. Once again MMS over ruled Halliburton safety warning and issued a permit to use single wall casing. (The single layer is what eventually blew out)
Halliburton while conducting tests on the cement to be used on was stopped by BP. No tests were done to assure that the cement would bond correctly as time is money and money is…. well it was already spent by BP as the largest oil contributor to Obama’s 2008 campaign. Coincidence?
Well blows up
At the collapse of the rig, CNN confirms oil leaking.
Obama through spokesman at Coast Guard claims there is no leak. Nothing to see here. Just move along.
Obama soon shuts down on his claimed authority all drilling in gulf for 6 months (even though inpections show no problems) while procrastinates on damage from the leak. We are not safe. His actions and inactions will surely surpass all the open attacks by Muslims on our country. And he golfs to unwind. May Obama's rule have a similar fate to that of Deep Horizon. May it come soon.
