INVENTION FOR SALE

Deep Sea Blowout Preventer

My theory would see a b.o.p. use sea water as a cutting agent to cut through stuck, jammed and bent drill pipes, connections and odd shaped items such as tri cone heads. Since sea water is already under intense pressure, my idea is to channel it to cut through drill pipes. Welding and fabrication shops use water jets for precision cutting, so the same theory could apply here.

By Jorge Barba

Innovators are looking for a challenge, not a job. Getting the most out of themselves is what drives them. They’re naturally attracted by any challenge that doesn’t have a clear path forward. So rather than evaluate them on predictable results, evaluate them for predictable attitude and flexible approach to overcoming challenges.
