Gulf of Mexico oil spill-blow out preventer

Industrial3d creates video for CNN with a video showing a typical blowout preventer working properly and showing it not working properly, for example if the pipe rams were not close the pipe might be bent or not centered and therefore could cause the shear rams not to work. or if the pipe joint was in the area of the shear rams, the shear rams would not be able to cut through the pipe joint. or if the wall thickness was to big on the drill-pipe.
Video Rating: 4 / 5

  3. I wonder if there is a shearable drill collar in the market that was designed to be easy and safe to shear.

  4. i think that you all are a bit rash for thinking that it was a problem of the president, how logical is that? a hap of nature, and you want to call retorich on those that had had no clue day before, that that well was even there? thus you speak as if you are a clarvoint, or do you make up words like palosi? so can you in theroy tell us why in fact that this is the fault of the commander and chief,]………

  11. BP was relying on a so-called fail-safe BOP when in fact it had 260 possible failure modes as the report of march 2001 stated. This report about the analysis of the BOP was in possession of BP.
    I think BP wanted to move up the deadlines for the amount of oil found has to be 1 of the largest ever. As we all know …. Time is Money..??

  12. Deregulation is the real (underlying) reason / cause behind the US oil spill by British Petroleum (BP) in 2010 off the coast of Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico. Deregulation coupled with lax government oversight (lackies appointed by Dick Cheney at the helm) lead to the omission of key safety features and protocols, a free pass for drilling licenses, emphasis on profit over safety, and absolutely NO PLAN for containment of blowouts.

  13. Oh, and thanks for the obnoxious white box in the upper right hand corner which obscures some of the words. Thanks.

  14. I had to view several parts of this video 20 times to be able to make ANY sense of just some of it. Will you PLEASE provide some audio explanation, or some written explanation. Do you think that only oil drilling engineers will see this? Good grief. I watching this animation and just getting confused because of the total lack of explanation.

  15. thats right…because there are many many several backup systems that can close the well…so if what your saying is true..then thats no big deal…they can close the annular or the pipe rams, or maybe the casing rams..oh and the shear rams…or whatever many many rams they have all set on separate backup emergency systems… blah blah blah…

  16. so when the rubber blow out preventor gasket material washed up in the dilling mud
    BP said no problem, that was 4 weeks befor the blow out.

  17. Thank you for posting this. The technical explanation concerning the operation of the BOP in other media sources doesn’t actually show the internal workings of the BOP while it’s in operation (during an emergency), so it’s difficult to understand how it works without seeing it work.
