It's still sitting like this. They are getting a boat similar to a dockwise boat that will sink down and pick up the rig and take it to Turkey. I belive they are permanently pumping water from the legs that are letting in water.

Hopefully I'll be at home at the same time to catch it on camera.

You would think with the trillions of dollars the industry has made they would have already designed some kind of inflatable balloon that you can inflate within the leg, thereby occupying the space where they're taking on/in water and voila... a viable, temporary repair to at least get it even and float it back to dock for permanent repair.

But what do I know...

This is the same industry who cuts corners on maintenance and operations causing some of the worst environmental disasters in history. Basically if it's not regulated or it's not going to actively increase production they aren't too interested in doing it. Designing for something that may be of great benefit in the event of a failure of some sort requires them to consider in the first place that things might go wrong

Understandable. But I would have assumed that some inflatable balloon is relatively low-cost, and would/could save them hundreds of thousands (or millions?) to prevent a situation such as this. :lol:

I reckon you're correct. I'm just not surprised that no one in the industry has anything like that available for deployment.

The situation arose after the rig broke free from being towed.
