No one is minding the store and things are falling apart!
There is a serious breakdown in management, safety, and proper maintenance at the sinkhole, and it would not surprise me at all if just one thing breaks down…that the whole shebang will grind to a halt.
The ‘Officals’ are not doing their jobs and safety is not a concern.
When workers have to find out about a ‘Code 3′ slough in on the internet, and that it did not all occur this morning but started last night, then serious problems exist when it comes to worker safety.
Vent Wells are shut in and flares are turned off. This just as Thunderstorms roll through, and a 7.2 earthquake again sets the earth and the sinkhole ringing like a bell.
Someone needs to take control of maintenance, and safety down there now!
Where the devil is OEP? Who is enforcing the Code 3 shutdowns? Shouldn’t that be John B? Think you could do a little bit more than just film the trees falling in, and do your job? Just because the level is now down to a Code 2 does not excuse your actions yesterday morning. Shame on you!
There is no over-sight, and safety is being sacrificed because the whole shebang is being run by the very criminal that perpetrated the crime. Texas Brine, LDNR, and Occidental Chemical Corporation!
