I wonder if the hook manufacturer didn't make an overload test? Bad calculation or casting mistake?

I was hoping Okie would chime in with a more nuanced answer, but I guess this is as good as we will get for now. It just depends on the play. The Permian Basin, The Stack and Scoop plays right off hand can be profitable at $35 bbl if they do not have a bunch of overrides. Other plays like the Missi...Jump to post
So on Saturday was the load test for a 5,000 ton capacity crane, lifting 5,500 lb in the test. Before the barge that was the test weight was lifted out of the water, it appears the massive 4 way hook fractured, causing slack in the line and a whiplash. The crane went over backwards in a total failu...Jump to post
Ok, that very clear, thanks. Btw, is it the rotating fan that is producing the so characteristic sound of the CF6-50? The LM2500 turbine which is basically a CF6 is used often in power generation. The flame front in the burners and entropy waves and vorticity waves through the turbine blades. Here ...Jump to post
The noise "growl" you hear at about the 50 sec mark is the harmonics of the flame front when the fuel is introduced. You can see the condensation from the air starter up until the turbine becomes self sufficient to accelerate rotational speed up to idle and the starter is dropped out. The ...Jump to post
Yes but in the end futures represent a delivery contract of 1000 barrels on a specific date at a specific location.So behind it there is always a physical delivery. There is always a settlement by the last day of the contract it is not always physical delivery. By the same token as I indicated up t...Jump to post
1. He's not talking about pumping oil back into empty wells. He alludes to mixing varieties by dismissing the properties of each one (oil is oil), meaning that it'll be contaminated. That's why I brought up the analogies: it's not that it can't be done; it's that it's not practical. If you were to ...Jump to post
-Why not pump the oil into oil wells? Ok, it will mix the oil varieties, but oil is oil. Would you drink salt water mixed with fresh water? Water is water.

This is just the May contract that expires tomorrow. I think Wednesday, we should see the price back in the upper $10s, lower $20s since that's the June contract.

This is clearly a humanitarian issue and it's disappointing (if not particularly surprising) that they have chosen to oppose the Iranian application.

Apparently the new electronic voting system screwed up, and the back up phone system failed.
