BP Technical Briefing – June 10 2010

Posted: June 14th, 2010 by: h2

Watch this June 10 technical briefing video with Kent Wells, the BP spokesperson for the efforts now under way.

Sorry I can’t embed it, but this covers what relief efforts are now under way, including the short term Q-4000 flaring ship, and the 2 new drill/processing ships that are being set up to handle up to about 40k barrels per day oil, with 2 full tankers as well.

No matter what, I can’t say BP isn’t trying here, that’s for sure. Too bad it’s necessary, but they are doing some amazing things, with amazing quantities of oil being produced daily, unfortunately about 1/2 is currently flowing directly into the gulf.

But give the video a look, it’s about 15 minutes long, and will help you understand what’s going on with graphics and shots of the various drill ships, processing ships, tankers, and sub-sea devices being constructed to handle these flows.
