How much gas was there in each horizon? How thick was each horizon of gas and oil? Was that oil or gas horizon filled with seawater or brine solutions? How fast were they drilling through those horizons? How was the mud being weighted up with depth? These are vital questions that the press is NOT asking. Why should they? They have never worked on a drilling rig. They do not know what the right questions are. They need help from mudlogging geologists, roughneck drilling crews, company men, mudmen, petroleum engineers and geophysicists.

3) Is the Company man alive? If he is or is not available publish his daily report that he sent to BP Head office. He is in charge on the drilling site. His word is law. Everybody falls under his command on that site. There seems to be confusion as to who is in charge in the press. There is no confusion. Work does not proceed without a company man. The buck stops here. Call to publish the Company Man report.

4) Are the two mudlogging geologists alive? These guys are independent contractors who work on multiple drilling rigs for multiple companies. They are your first line of defense against a blowout, apart from the actual blowout preventers. If these guys are geologists, they are very bright people who have studied in principals of geology, physics, math and chemistry. These sometimes quiet intellectuals are working for the money in 12 hour shifts which can go on un-interrupted for up to a month depending on the site and whether there are other geologists to relieve them. Many do this job out of choice for 20 years. Others only for a few years. If a geologist falls ill and another is not immediately available, that shift is pushed to 24, 36 and 48 hours without sleep. The drilling does not stop to wait for a replacement geologist. The geologist can not leave, until the company gives him authority. In any case, he can not hitch a ride on a passing helicopter. Call to publish the geological mudreport.
