    Subsea operational update:

    • For the last 12 hours on June 18th (noon to midnight), approximately 6,100 barrels of oil were collected and approximately 5,150 barrels of oil and 21.4 million cubic feet of natural gas were flared.

    • On June 18th, total oil recovered was approx. 24,500 barrels:

    approx. 10,100 barrels of oil were flared,
    and approx. 47.4 million cubic feet of natural gas were flared.

    • Total oil recovered from both the LMRP Cap and Q4000 systems since they were implemented is approx. 228,500 barrels.

    The Enterprise shutdown at 20:23 on June 18th due to a blocked flame arrestor; restart is expected today after a lightening storm leaves the area.

    • The next update will be provided at 6:00pm CDT on June 19, 2010.

    Updated June 18 at 9:00am CDT / 3:00pm BST

    Only 11,250 barrels in the last 12 hours because of the shutdown. Todays numbers will probably be less than 20,000.

    Not good.
