Admiral Allen Issues Directive to BP Authorizing the BOP Fishing Procedure

WASHINGTON—(ENEWSPF)—August 21, 2010.  National Incident Commander Admiral Thad Allen late last night issued a directive to BP authorizing the BOP fishing procedure – a preparation procedure for the removal and replacement of the current BOP on the Deepwater Horizon/Macondo 252 well -provided that certain specific steps are taken to preserve forensic evidence, including the development of a timeline and plan to remove and replace the current BOP stack and full cooperation with the Joint Investigation Team and the Department of Justice. The letter directs BP to submit for review and approval a procedure for the BOP salvage operation, and it sets out a series of conditions related to execution of that procedure designed to ensure that the BOP salvage is performed in a way that doesn’t compromise the investigation.  The letter also directs BP to ensure live ROV feeds are in place prior to the removal and recovery process to document those activities. The directive can be viewed here.
