Now 3 dead, one in the rig and other 2 that were taken to the hospital. Only one is still alive in a very bad condition with 90% of the body burned.

As soon as they let us all know exactly what happened, not what the Courts outcome is, but ASAP so we we can all learn from Lessons Learned so others can take some actions to stop this type of Accidents from happening again, Correct me if I am wrong but it seems to be taking longer to learn lessons from past mistakes, every detail is analyzed like the GOM Horizon Accident when in fact most of us recognize this was a case of; how could they send off Schlumberger before doing a basic CBL / Cement Bond Log they were doing CBLs regularly when I was Offshore. These Supervisors cost sorry I shouldnt mention Costs HS says this is much more than just costs its lives. All the best and do keep safe
