After AMACO BP in Texas City blew up Tuesday night, it was a unit I worked on first part of the year and they were bringing it back up. May be headed back down there again in the near future for awhile. I spent yesterday preparing for two more jobs. One in Freeport a place that makes Hydgrogen and CO2 they call it the hyco plant and said there are no air lines in the plant all piping/non product lines are either water or nitrogen. That job is only 110 miles away from the house each way. The other job is a Syngas unit about 35 miles away. I worked on it about 10 years ago and was almost toasted there one night right after the flood of 93 when a 9000lb methanol line blew out. It was on the ground and I was on the 8th floor with two coworkers. We were lucky the wind was blowing in the right directiion and took the product out into an open field and not back into the unit. Had this not happened Maggie would be wealthy and probably have a new husband that does everything he was told to do but God thought she need me to keep her inline I guess. At any rate looks like next week will be busy so I am going to try and plant the most of the garden today and finish fixing my lean mean cutting machine. Splain that later but for you folks with tractors and brush piles that a bush hog can't quite get through you may want to build you one.
