Deepwater Horizon - Tour a Rig

So with the movie being premiered in Toronto and yes, I'll probably go see it just to see if they got it right because I have friends who WERE on it, who survived.

So without writing a big narrative, I'm going to take you through one of today's modern drill ships. I remember Diane Sawyer saying the rigs were so tight, for crew, work area, all spaces were dirty, and the jobs so low in pay. Well, that ain't exactly the case boys and girls, please excuse my grammar.

So lets start with ZERO discharge - nothing goes over the side, not even rain water. It all goes through an oily water separator, 15ppm alarm, clear water goes over, 15ppm alarm goes off, valve switches to dirty water tank, 1pm, dirty oil tank - then both are shipped to shore at different times. ALL garbage, plastics, cardboard - sent into town and plastic bottles and cardboard are sent to recycle facilities. We have a IOPP and IAPP Certificates - Int Oil Poll Prevention and Int Air Poll Prevention certificates. All Marine Sanitation devices are certified every year for proper PH and Chlorine discharge AND we must keep records of ALL OF IT.

I'll take you through some spaces, not in any particular order until my first morning meeting, then continue when I come back on tonight.

Navigation bridge, stability computer, Dynamic Position systems, CCTV, fire alarm control - VMS - vessel management system - we control most the ship


Chart desk, DGPS control units, documents, etc


housekeeping

Drilling office BOP controls, Emergency disconnect as well.
