1) Kurt Russell and John Malkovich face to face having an argument over “negative pressure test”.
1) If we forget that it’s based on an actual incident, it’s a formulaic disaster film.
Vidrine: I would love to hear exactly what piece of mission-critical equipment are down.
Mike Williams: Shit, where do I start? “A” drilling chair. Process Station 18. BOP control pods. Telephone system. Pipe-racking system. GPS antenna. DirecTV system. Wireless Internet. Iron roughneck. Top drive rack back system. Auxiliary-draw works control. Salt water service pumps. Smoke alarms in the galley. And the reason why you’re sweatin’ so hard is ’cause the compressor for the AC on this deck are down, too.
Kaluza: Everything but the toilets, huh?
Mike Williams: No, no, you got problems there, too, but I don’t do shitters. That’s Engineering.
