Discover Enterprise Resumes Containment Ops

Deepwater Horizon Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill

At 2:15 p.m. CDT, the Discoverer Enterprise resumed containment operations following a short outage caused by a lightning strike at 9:30 this morning. The U.S. Coast Guard gave authorization for the operation to resume at 1:40 p.m. after the ship’s crew completed safety and operational assurance inspections.

The shut-down of the containment system was a precautionary move designed to protect the health and safety of the crew during the incident. There were no injuries and all safety systems operated as designed.
