Let’s hope 4’s the charm…

The IP is really getting into BP’s live feed now that # 4 is on the scene. It’s almost whimsical how this contraption is simply hand-labeled “4.” One assumes that means fourth attempt, which is what it is. Hey, it is what it is.


Watching the skills of the robot operators is worth the slow pace. This feed is like watching the Apollo 11 mission, except it’s got a better image and it’s actually more interesting. Those blue tubes might be the anti-freeze lines…The last time The IP watched the robots in action, it looked like they were trying to move that line close to 4 away. 4 has to go onto the sheared riser pipe.
