  •  6 to 7 days (3+ / 0-)

    We have had reports of 2.5 or 5 days.   The article which says 6 to 7 days seems to get various other things wrong.

    It is rather unlikely that the boat needs 6 to 7 days to head to shore as the article implies.   What is likely, which is closer to the wording in the status report, is that it needs 6 to 7 days to dismantle the drill pipe and riser one section at a time since they aren't using the floating riser, yet.   The floating riser is supposed to be ready in about a week.

    The 2.5 days figure may be for after the floating riser.
