To what do I owe the extreme pleasure of this surprising visit?.

I know that your friends are my friends and, uh... I've thought about that..You can have 'em..

In 1932, APOC and Royal Dutch Shell formed the joint marketing company in the UK named Shell-Mex and BP.. In 1934, APOC and Gulf Oil founded the Kuwait Oil Company as an equally owned partnership..The oil concession rights were awarded to the company Mates on 23 December 1934 and the company started drilling operations in 1936 - Every oil resource rock requires Structural traps which are mainly salt dome, coral reefs, fault trap and fold trap.. In case of Bombay High, the structure is a "north-northwest to south-southeast trending doubly plunging Anticline with a faulted east limb", 65 km long and 23 km wide",and is the most probable reason to call it "Bombay High" - 1977 NOV 23 -Sikorsky S-61N-II Impacted the water after a blade damper fatigue failure..Pilot Manfred Germroth (34) and co-pilot Albert Buchow (30).. It is reported one survivor was visible in the water but was unable to be recovered before succumbing.. After this Incident it became mandatory in Norway for helicopters to carry an emergency beacon - 1983 July 16 - British Airways Helicopters' commercial Sikorsky S-61 Oscar November left Penzance on its scheduled 12:40 pm service to the Isles of Scilly.. It was flying at 250 feet (80 m) over the Celtic Sea, due to poor visibility..Then, at 12:58 pm, air traffic control on lost contact with the helicopter, before it had the chance to send a Mayday signal or to ditch under power.. It had crashed nose-first into the sea and sunk immediately, only 2.5 miles (4.0 km) from St Mary's Airport..The six survivors were unable to don lifejackets in time, but were able to float for 30 minutes before St Mary's lifeboat RNLB Robert Edgar (ON 1073) attended the scene..The survivors were: two children, both of whom were orphaned by the incident; the two pilots, Dominic Lawlor & Neil Charleton; and the only two Scillonians on board, Lucille Langley-Williams & Megan Smith..There were 20 fatalities..The MV Seaforth Clansman, along with Penlee lifeboat RNLB Mabel Alice (ON 1085), had the duty of returning 17 bodies to shore..There was speculation that the helicopter could have flown into a flock of seagulls after mutilated bird corpses were found near the scene...Islanders found more dead seabirds on the shore, without mutilations..Passengers 23..

For Allied Forces in the Golf the preparation is over..

A blowout is the uncontrolled release of crude oil and/or gas from an oil well or gas well after pressure control systems have failed..One of the most troublesome gushers happened on June 23, 1985 at well #37 at the Tengiz field in Atyrau, Kazakh SSR, Soviet Union, where the 4209-metre deep well blew out and the 200-metre high gusher self-ignited two days later.. Oil pressure up to 800 atm and high hydrogen sulfide content had led to the gusher being capped only on 27 July 1986 - Sleipner A is a combined accommodations, production and processing offshore platform at the Sleipner East gas field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.. It is a Condeep-type oil platform, built in Norway by the company Norwegian Contractors for Statoil..It is known for its catastrophic failure on 23 August 1991, due to a design flaw, that resulted from an error caused by unconservative concrete codes and inaccurate Finite element analysis modelling of the tricell, which formed part of the ballasting/flotation system..As the structure sank deeper into the 210-meter (690 ft) fjord, the buoyancy chambers imploded and the rubble struck the floor of the fjord, creating a Richter magnitude scale 3 earthquake..Later analysis showed that the failure would occur at 62 meters (203 feet)..

A ditched British Airways Sikorsky S-61N helicopter similar to the aircraft involved in the Incident..

Thunder Horse PDQ 15,813 nautical miles (29,286 km; 18,197 mi) journey around the Cape of Good Hope took 8 weeks (63 days), from 23 July to 23 September 2004..During repairs, it was discovered that the underwater manifold was severely cracked due to poorly welded pipes - On 23 July 2005, M squadron, supported by troops from the SAS and US forces carried out Operation Marlborough, killing 3 members of AQI - In 2009, BP obtained a production contract during the Iraqi oil services contracts tender to develop the Rumaila field with joint venture partner CNPC, which contain an estimated 17 billion barrels (2.7×109 m3) of oil, accounting for 12% of Iraq's oil reserves estimated at 143.1 billion barrels (22.75×109 m3).. In June 2010, the BP/CNPC consortium took over development of the field, which was the epicentre of the 1990 Golf war - Montara oil spill - On 23 August 2009, a Hercules aircraft sprayed 10,000 litres of chemical dispersant onto parts of the slick, with ongoing aerial sprayingwith dispersants being the primary early response to the spill - Deepwater Horizon - On April 23 a ROV reportedly found no oil leaking from the sunken rig and no oil flowing from the well...Coast Guard Rear Admiral Mary Landry expressed cautious optimism of zero environmental impact, stating that no oil was emanating from either the wellhead or the broken pipes and that oil spilled from the explosion & sinking was being contained - June 23Oil appeared on Pensacola Beach & in Golf Islands National Seashore, and officials warned against swimming for 33 miles (53 km) east of the Alabama line - December 17 – Unified Area Command releases the report from the Operational Science Advisory Team regarding results of sampling and analyses of thousands of water column and sediment samples from the shoreline through deepwater areas... created the Event Horizon to reach the stars, but she's gone much, much farther than that..She tore A hole in our universe, a gateway to another dimension..Would you like to hear today's specials?..Tell them, I'm stuck in a bunker near 223 North, outside Kabala, okay?..with this Sicilian thing that's been going on for 2-000 years...
