    •  I never did see where the saw was positioned... (1+ / 0-)

      so I don't know if it was changed.

      Because there are two LMRP Caps on site with different attachment configurations, it is possible they have two choices on where to cut.

      So, cutting between the flanges may already be one of their options. I sure hope so because I'd much prefer the cut there instead of leaving a stub.

      It's all educated guessing on my part...

      Now, there's the problem of what happens when the drill string gets cut through - will it drop down or will it get pushed up or will it just remain in position.

        which on three hours sleep is always up for question, they positioned the saw where you think it should go.

        Not on top of the BOP where all the pipes are sticking out and kinked over, but lower on the BOP, either just above or below the flanges. That is if what I think are flanges happen to be what you're talking about.

        We need a diagram.
