    you may get a kick out of this

    This is a platform i was helping salvage in the Gulf of Mexico.
    200 Fsw at one platform and 250 Fsw under the burned one
    most of the work is being done in Saturation diving.
    i was there for surface support
    we were also re routing a 30" pipeline from the burned one to the unburned one

    Looks like the guy on that platform didn't read the "no smoking" sign.

    Re: you may get a kick out of this

    Now a full year after the initial post I want to know is this a BP owned rig? How many men were killed here? Until the recent disaster with the deep BP platform those were just interesting pictures. Watching the news I have heard others claim there is a pattern of safety violations and big fines levied against BP. But what's a 20 million fine when you first quarter's profits were in the billions. Polluting the ocean and killing people is just part of doing 'business.' jim
    If you think you can or if you think you can't...you're probably right!
