    9. 9. “Controlling” Technology is NOT the pointThe life raft was at a 45-degree angle to the water. Theres something called a painterline that these life rafts attach to the rigs. We had pulled all that tight. And no one hadever cut it. So were tied to the rig and were dumping people out of the life raft.Transocean has a no-knife policy. No pocketknives of any kind. No one had a knife tocut this line. Mike Williams, Chief ET, DWH Slide: 9 11/8/2012 Webinar Sponsored by Computer Aid, Inc.

    12. 12. August 1628 Vasa, the most lavishly appointed and heavily armed warship of its day, but one too long and too tall for its beam and ballast-a matchless array of features on an unstable platform. The standard stability test of the day-30 sailors running from side to side trying to rock the boat-tilted the Vasa perilously, the test was canceled and the ship readied for launch. Minutes after her grand launching, with all Stockholm watching, the Vasa heeled, listed and sank, killing about 50. Slide: 12 11/8/2012 Webinar Sponsored by Computer Aid, Inc.
    13. 13. December 1903Burning of Chicagos Iroquois Theater - a supposedlyindestructible, up-to-the-minute design-in this case, a theateradvertised as "absolutely fireproof“ - killed 602 people, morethan twice the toll of "the Great Chicago Fire" 32 years earlier.The Iroquoiss owners acted with as much haste and hubris astheir Titanic counterparts, installing no firefighting equipment,forgoing fire drills and opening before the sprinkler system wasready. Instead, like so many others, they relied on a singletechnological magic bullet: an asbestos curtain that would dropdown and shield the audience in the (rather common) event of abackstage fire. An oil-painted backdrop brushed against a hotcalcium-arc spotlight and ignited. The asbestos curtain starteddropping on cue but caught on a stage light. Crew and castopened the stage door to flee, admitting a powerful gust thatsent fireballs shooting out over the unshielded audience.Fleeing patrons either found the doors barred or could not turnthe newfangled latches on them.

    15. 15. July 1979 Atlantic Empress and Aegean Captain, gigantic supertankers collide off the island of Little Tobago in the Caribbean Sea, killing 26 crew members and spilling 280,000 tons of crude oil into the sea. At the time, it was the worst oil-tanker accident in history and remains one of the very few times in history when two oil tankers have collided.

    16. 16. July 1981 On July 17, 1981, approximately 1,600 people gathered in the Hyatt Regency Kansas City atrium to participate in and watch a dance competition. The fourth floor walkway collapsed onto the second floor and both walkways then fell to the lobby floor below, resulting in 114 deaths and 216 injuries. The basic problem was a lack of proper communication, failure to review the initial design thoroughly, and failure to perform basic calculations that would have revealed its serious intrinsic flaws — in particular, the doubling of the load on the fourth-floor beams.

    17. 17. April 1986 Chernobyl was a nuclear power plant in Ukraine that suffered a catastrophic meltdown. On April 26, 1986, one of the reactors underwent rapid overheating, leading to a meltdown that released an enormous cloud of radioactive fallout, simultaneously endangering the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in surrounding areas. Since the disaster, over 4,000 people have died due to cancer from the radiation. As it stands today, Chernobyl has a 17-mile radius ―Exclusion Zone‖ which is considered too hazardous to live safely in. Scientists estimate that Chernobyl will become fully safe to inhabit – in 20,000 years.

    18. 18. August 2007The I-35W Mississippi River bridgewas an eight-lane, steel truss archbridge that carried Interstate 35Wacross the Mississippi River inMinneapolis. During the eveningrush hour on August 1, 2007, itsuddenly collapsed, killing 13people and injuring 145. NTSBfound the primary cause was theunder-sized gusset plates.Contributing to that error was thefact that 2 inches of concrete wereadded to the road surface over theyears, increasing the dead load by20%. Also contributing was theextraordinary weight of constructionequipment and material resting onthe bridge just above its weakestpoint at the time of the collapse.

    20. 20. December 2009 A control system failure occurred on a large, off-shore construction vessel. Two control units were restarted twice, unsuccessfully. A blinking red lamp on the PLC indicated that a memory reset was required, even though a memory reset had NEVER been requested by control system diagnostics during equipment operations. As soon as the hydraulic power packs started, a loud bang was heard. A quadruple joint of pipe dropped approximately one meter to the welding deck below. A second quadruple joint of pipe in the pipe elevator was released (all clamps opened and the hydraulic safety stop swung away) and fell the full length of the tower, smashing through a crowded access platform to the deck below. Result Eight personnel were injured - four fatally. All were located on the access platform and several were thrown overboard by the impact.Slide: 2011/8/2012Webinar Sponsored by Computer Aid, Inc.

    22. 22. Opportunities LOST!1. June 22, 2009 - Mark E. Hafle, a senior drilling engineer at BP, warns that the metal casing for the blowout preventer might collapse under high pressure.2. March 2010 - An accident damages a gasket on the blowout preventer on the rig.3. April 1 - Halliburton employee Marvin Volek warns that BPs use of cement "was against our best practices.―4. April 6 - MMS issues permit to BP for the well with the notation, "Exercise caution while drilling due to indications of shallow gas and possible water flow."5. April 9 - BP drills last section with the wellbore 18,360 feet below sea level but the last 1,192 feet need casing. Halliburton recommends liner/tieback casing that will provide 4 redundant barriers to flow. BP chooses to do a single liner with fewer barriers that is faster to install and cheaper ($7 to $10 million).6. April 15 - Morel informs Halliburton executive Jesse Gagliano that they plan to use 6 centralizers. Gagliano says they should use 21.7. April 15 - Gagliano also recommends to circulate the drilling mud from the bottom of the well all the way up to the surface to remove air pockets and debris which can contaminate the cement, saying in an email, at "least circulate one bottoms up on the well before doing a cement job." Despite this recommendation, BP cycles only 261 barrels (41.5 m 3) of mud, a fraction of the total mud used in the well.8. April 17 - Gagliano now reports that using only 6 centralizers "would likely produce channeling and a failure of the cement job."9. April 18 - Gaglianos report says "well is considered to have a severe gas flow problem."10. April 20 -7 am - BP cancels a recommended cement bond log test.
