A Travellerspoint blog

June is almost over

We arrived at our work site last night about 1 AM.

Stopped the ship and pushed down the thrusters to hold us in position. Apparently there is a thruster next to my cabin. Sounded like pushing a heavy metal barrel down a gravel road.

Main engine on the derrick has been running all night. Thankfully, I am far enough away, and the water sounds are loud enough, to cover that noise. Lowering a cementing assembly down to the sea floor, about 2800 meters.

As soon as they manage to push the assembly into the hole, then they will begin pouring down cement. We are supposed to do this twice in this area if possible.

Seas are calmer, so there is a good chance of success. Weather was getting cloudier and they are expecting another storm, so they are trying to hurry.

Expecting a long day today. We will start performance testing tonight and continue until we can't do it any longer or find the problem with our services. We have a limited window to work in while everyone else is asleep.
