Thunderhorse: the end of the line.

Judging by the traffic patterns this place has been seeing, it would appear that a lot of you are still clamoring for Thunderhorse news. Sadly, I really don't have much more to share. The latest I've seen is a press release from Sir John Browne saying that they cannot say what the cause was at this time. For my money that is not because they don't know, it is because lawsuits are probably pending. And that the start of production will be delayed beyond 2005. And another press release from the head honcho over at Weatherford saying he does not expect the delay to go beyond 3-6 months and that structurally the rig was in a lot better shape than was expected.

I'm really sorry to disappoint, but until the lawsuits start wending thier way through the system, I really don't expect any more news.

The traffic was fun while it lasted for me too!

Maybe we should start a new riff on the most outrageous Thunder Horse rumors.

What, like the aliens from atlantis sabotaging the rig to prevent discovery of thousands of Elvis clones at the bottom of the Green Canyon? Think we could get that rumor going? =D
