This is getting downright ridiculous. Laugh or cry it is your choice. Last night the Enterprise had an alarm trigger a shutdown of operations. Then again today a suspected lightning strike is suspected of causing a small fire aboard the Enterprise, resulting in the temporary shutdown of oil collection operations. The good news is the fire was quickly extinguished and collection operations should begin again this afternoon.
The Q4000 is being retrofitted to burn 5-10,000 barrels a day from the choke line. Operational with luck today. (not the there has been any so far).
Clear leader drill ship will connect to the kill line an provide an additional 5-10K barrles a day capacity. Unlike the Q4000 the Clear Leader will collect the oil and not burn it.
Toisa Pisces (operational end of June or early July) and the Helix Producer (operational Mid July) will each hook up to a seperate new riser connected to a Manifold on the gulf floor and collect about 25000 barrels a day each if needed. This will replace the Enterprise.
