It's just an example of a BOP Failure, nothing more.
Please stop comparing this with the TRP and Repsol fiasco. Its nothing like it. !! With that one of 'glowing in the dark' they even got the rock formations wrong.
RE: Its a technical problem
Agreed, not uncommon, happened to Repsol/TRP last year, see below. This particular drill was a very dusty duster, for info. Repsol has since reported a further operational delay to the drilling programme due to a fault with part of the Blow Out Preventer ("BOP") control system. Drilling has been suspended whilst Repsol and the drilling contractor, Rowan, are taking measures to rectify the fault so that they are able to recommence drilling safely. It is estimated that commissioning issues relating to the BOP control system will delay further drilling until the end of May 2014. The current status of the well is that casing has been set to a depth of 1,879 metres and we anticipate drilling into the primary target section shortly following the restart of drilling operations.
