The US NRC states that defective breakers may keep the Standby Gas Treatment System, which “limits release to the environment of radioisotopes…under accident conditions” from doing its job.

However, there are so many of these breakers that they might also keep the routine radiation filtration from working, which while incomplete is still more protective than no filtration. And, defective breakers may create conditions leading to a nuclear disaster. With so many potentially defective breakers, almost anything could happen.
NASA lightening
Most likely these defective breakers allowed the outage during an electrical storm earlier this year, and a loss of coolant which could have led to a meltdown. “A circuit breaker is an automatically operated electrical switch designed to protect an electrical circuit from damage caused by overcurrent or overload or short circuit.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circuit_breaker In the context of a power station, however, breakers can also act as parts…

Power Outage Near Waterford Nuke Plant Area

Power back on.

Entergy has restored power to more than 7,000 residents in Kenner and Metairie Saturday (May 14) afternoon following several power outages in the area, according to the outage map provided by Entergy. A piece of equipment failed at a substation on West Esplanade Avenue that affected approximately 7,000 customers in total…”

Note: Nuke plants melt down without constant electrical power to their control room. Their “back-up” generators are worthless after an hour.

Gulf Oil Spill + News + Methane Red Alert

Shell shuts wells to Brutus platform after spill off Louisiana

A 2,100-barrel oil spill in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico forced Royal Dutch Shell on Thursday to shut in all wells that flow to its Brutus platform, federal regulators said.

The U.S. Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) said a 2 mile by 13 mile (about 3 km by 21 km) sheen was visible in the sea about 97 miles off the Louisiana coast.

The sheen is near Shell’s Glider Field, a group of four subsea wells whose production flows through a subsea manifold to the Brutus platform, which sits in water with a depth of 2,900 feet (884 m). . . . ”  (more)

(5-3) Offshore drilling regulator warns of bolt failures in Gulf of Mexico

“The federal government’s top offshore drilling regulator warned Tuesday that metal bolts used to hold together drilling equipment under the surface of the ocean were failing faster than anticipated.

Brian Salerno, director of the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, said so far the failures had not resulted in any major oil leaks or other incidents but the rapid corrosion concerned inspectors. . . “

NY TimesE.P.A. Methane Leak Rules Take Aim at Climate Change

“WASHINGTON — The Obama administration on Thursday unveiled the first federal regulations to control emissions of potent planet-warming methane gas that could leach from new oil and gas wells, the next step in President Obama’s effort to combat climate change.

The methane rules, the final version of draft regulations put forth last year by the Environmental Protection Agency, require oil and gas companies to plug and capture leaks of methane from new and modified drilling wells and storage tanks, not older, existing wells….”

Bacteria more effective on oil spills without dispersants, study finds

“EDINBURGH, UK – Heriot-Watt University claims to have cracked the genetic code of the marine bacteria that helped “eat” the oil spilled from the Deepwater Horizon.

Dr. Tony Gutierrez, Associate Professor of Microbiology at the university, was in the US at the time of the spill and shortly after was able to perform experiments with samples from the oil-contaminated waters containing species of bacteria that fed on the oil.

Analysis showed that certain bacteria had thrived on the escaped oil, devouring it as a preferred food source.

In a paper published in Nature Microbiology, Dr. Gutierrez and his colleagues from the University of Texas and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill reveal the genetic pathways these bacteria use to consume the oil; the conditions they thrive in; the type of oil hydrocarbons they can eat; and how they “co-operate” during an oil spill. . .  .”

Hey, Sandia! Supercomputer Available for Earth Sciences Studies

UW Faculty Have Until May 22 to Apply for Supercomputer Use

May 4, 2016 — University of Wyoming faculty members have the opportunity to apply for a large allocation to use computational and storage resources at the National Center for Atmospheric Science (NCAR)-Wyoming Supercomputing Center (NWSC) in Cheyenne to support their research in earth systems and atmospheric sciences. Applications are due May 22.

Any request for more than 200,000 core hours is considered a large request. UW’s current share of the NWSC resource is 75 million core hours. This share of core hours will more than double next year. One core hour is the equivalent of running one application on a single computer for one hour. Since October, UW researchers have used 30.5 million core hours and, in February, six projects were allocated 42 million core hours…..”  (more)

They could study Lake FUBAR. Or they could modernize studies on the worthiness of salt dome storage caverns.  USGS, Sandia Labs … could contact some prof. there to put together a study.
