"This file" is for Macondo, which they abandoned, I believe. That event should have been a wake-up call. I do not know if the two wells are in the same formation.

I do not know if the two wells are in the same formation.
 

Yes, they are.  

And, yes, it should have been (a wake-up call, that is).  

But the failure of the first well put them behind schedule, which is why they rushed the second well and cut so many corners drilling it.  MBA management is idiot management.  They are like our incompetent winter drivers who drive faster on snow and ice--and leave less margin for errors--because, !of course! the bad weather has made them late.  

The Fates are kind.
