Exxon Mobil Corporation Message Board

  • spcrash spcrash Apr 17, 2013 5:17 PM Flag

    Just wondering if Exxon CEO will want his life back after Texas Fire.....remember what he said about BP's Macondo??

     

    He said this would never happen at Exxon.....now knowing that Transocean Rig blowout preventer's battery was not charge since 2007....you just wonder why it did not prevent anything???...or what about Halliburton cementing mix with nitrogen foam cement mixture :In a letter to the commission, the investigator, Fred Bartlit, said the cement mixture used on the well did not meet industry standards, and failed three out of four laboratory tests before the Deepwater Horizon explosion on 20 April.

    Halliburton, which was hired by BP to cement the well, learned of those failures in February, and informed BP on 8 March. But both firms chose to go ahead with the nitrogen foam cement mixture, which was supposed to secure the bottom of the well.

    "Halliburton (and perhaps BP) should have considered redesigning the foam slurry," the letter said.
