Dag,

Firstly I am sorry to hear about the tragic loss of the 11 souls, but we also give thanks foe the many that have been saved.

Secondly, and as a very minor passing comment, we have merged the two threads. Thank your for taking the time and trouble to upload these images.


Mark

These photos have been "doing the rounds" on the net over the last 24 hours. I got them yesterday from the UK and from Australia at the same time.

Whatever, it is scary!

A reminder to all of us who work in the offshore business.

Very sorry to hear of the losses Captain Dag, and most pleased to hear of the rescued.

There was some talk that the well was leaking 1500tons/day, a problem with the BOP stack?

When rig sank, the well stopped leaking.

Edit: NOAA Situation Update posted 0049:

NOAA Situation Update - April 24, 2010

DEEPWATER HORIZON Incident

Situation – Saturday 24 April - The situation remains highly dynamic with severe storms and high seas hampering response efforts. Winds have been 20-30 knots gusting higher, seas 7 1/2 feet, with a tornado watch for coastal waters. The Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit (MODU), or rig, has been located on the seafloor approximately 1300’ northwest of the well. The riser has also been located and traced by remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). Two leaks have been identified; preliminary estimates are that the well is leaking 1000 barrels (42,000 gallons) a day at a depth of 5000’. The estimates will be revised pending information from ROVs monitoring the seafloor and surface and overflight observations as weather conditions allow. A flotilla of response vessels and personnel are on-scene. The U.S. Coast Guard suspended its search for 11 missing crewmembers on Friday, April 23. NOAA extends its deepest sympathies to the families and friends of the missing.
