#2099: Marine Links Serco Time-On-Tag Frauds to Lloyd’s Register of Alibis, Deepwater's Helideck IED

Plum City - ( United States Marine Field McConnell has linked Serco time-on-tag offender frauds to alibis allegedly developed by Lloyd's Register for the arsonists who appear to have placed improvised explosive devices on Transocean's Deepwater Horizon drilling rig and burned a rectangular hole in the helideck with the help of gas accumulations from a sabotaged cement bond job.
The global expertise of Lloyd's Register

McConnell claims that Serco time-on-tag operatives transferred offenders' tags to stay-at-home doppelgangers and sent an alibied team in the Lloyd's Register crew to survey the rig on March 12-16 2010 when they allegedly hired disgruntled workers to sabotage the abandonment cement job and place IEDs under the helideck for remote ignition through Serco's C4ISR Segment 2 / Spiral 2 hardware on the National Security Cutter class ship, USCGC WAESCHE (WMSL 751).

McConnell claims that Serco used patented Onion Router technology (Serco runs the U.S. Patent Office!) to relay ignition signals to the pre-positioned helideck IEDs via the 26-foot catamaran, the Endorfin, whose unwitting skipper, a marine biology student by the name of Albert Andry III, had been catching blackfins around BP’s "Amberjack Rig 109" and had apparently been unlawfully authorized by Serco's alibied time-on-tag offenders in the U.S. Coast Guard to spend the night of April 20 2010 under the protective shelter of the Deepwater Horizon rig!

"Study: Deepwater Horizon workers were afraid to report safety issues
By Allan Chernoff, CNN

Transocean commissioned the survey of about half its staff aboard the Deepwater Horizon.
Report: Deepwater Horizon workers feared reprisal for reporting safety-related actions
The study was conducted by an outside consultant in March
The oil rig exploded the night of April 20
(CNN) -- A confidential report on safety conditions aboard the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, conducted about one month before the rig's explosion, points to widespread fear of reprisal for reporting employee mistakes that could undermine safety aboard the rig.
"There was a stated fear of reprisal related specifically to the reporting of dropped objects," states an executive summary of the report obtained by CNN.
"Only 46.3 percent of participants felt that, if their actions led to a potentially risky situation (e.g., forgetting to do something, damaging equipment, dropping an object from height), they could report it without any fear of reprisal," the report states.
Transocean, the rig operator, commissioned the survey of about 40 employees, about half its staff aboard the Deepwater Horizon.
The report concluded, "Deepwater Horizon was relatively strong in many of the core aspects of safety management." But it also uncovered fear among workers of suffering reprisal for reporting conditions that could lead to a "risky" situation onboard the rig.
The study also found some Transocean employees entered fake data to try to circumvent a safety system, according to a person familiar with the full report.
The study was based on surveys conducted March 12-16 by Lloyd's Register Group, a consultant that analyzes the safety of business processes and products. The Deepwater Horizon rig exploded the night of April 20 while drilling BP's Macondo oil well. Two days later it sank. The Lloyd's report was completed afterwards; it is dated May 11.
Lloyd's said it was retained by Transocean to "proactively understand their safety culture and assess the equipment on the Deepwater Horizon." Transocean has commissioned safety surveys of its staff aboard 20 other drilling rigs.
A spokesperson for Transocean insisted the study of employees aboard Deepwater Horizon reflected the company's commitment to safety.
"This rig did go seven years without a lost-time incident or any major environmental accidents," said spokesman Lou Colasuonno. "This rig was exhibit-A for a well-run rig."
In assessing the safety culture onboard the rig, the consultants gave ratings of between 2.9 to 3.5 on a scale of 1 to 5 for policies such as leadership, communication, training and monitoring.
A separate report by a different Transocean consultant on the Deepwater Horizon's equipment cited at least 26 components and systems out of 129 categories on the rig that were in "bad" or "poor" condition, according to a report in Thursday's New York Times.
Transocean's spokesman told CNN all equipment on the Deepwater Horizon was in line with government guidelines. "Every device met regulatory standards," Colasuonno said."
"At Inland Revenue a formal assessment lasting one week was carried out by two assessors from Lloyds Register, assisted by two usability specialists from Serco Usability Services who identified opportunities for process improvement [Serco and Lloyd's Register time-on-tag offenders are allegedly engaged in citizen surveillance and forfeiture fund frauds through the UK's  Inland Revenue and U.S. IRS]. A total of 13 stakeholders associated with the trial project at different levels in Inland Revenue and EDS were interviewed in twelve 3-hour sessions. A conventional software process assessment procedure based on SPICE (ISO 15504) was used. This produced a detailed profile and rich information about where improvements would be beneficial. At a feedback meeting on the last day, it provided the basis for an agreed set of improvement activities."
Deepwater Horizon was an ultra-deepwater, dynamically positionedsemi-submersible offshore oil drilling rig[6] owned by Transocean. Built in 2001 in South Korea by Hyundai Heavy Industries,[3] the rig was commissioned by R&B Falcon, which later became part of Transocean,[8] registered in MajuroMarshall Islands, and leased to BP from 2001 until September 2013.[9] In September 2009, the rig drilled the deepest oil well in history at a vertical depth of 35,050 ft (10,683 m) and measured depth of 35,055 ft (10,685 m)[10] in the Tiber Oil Field at Keathley Canyon block 102, approximately 250 miles (400 km) southeast of Houston, in 4,132 feet (1,259 m) of water.[11] On 20 April 2010, while drilling at the Macondo Prospect, an explosion on the rigcaused by a blowout killed 11 crewmen and ignited a fireball visible from 40 miles (64 km) away.[12] The resulting fire could not be extinguished and, on 22 April 2010, Deepwater Horizon sank, leaving the well gushing at the seabed and causing the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history.[13]"
"TransoceanBetween March 22nd and 24th of 2010, the Department of Homeland Security and the US Coast Guard conducted drills that they called “Oil Spills of National Significance”. What an amazing stroke of luck that DHS and our Coast Guard was so well prepared in proximity to the April 20, 2010 BP oil spill event. It kind of reminds one of the drill simulating  9/11 when we prepared for terrorists who might fly planes into tall buildings while effecting a communications blackout during the drill which prevented a shoot down of the four planes hijacked on 9/11. This oil spill drill also reminds one of the London subway bombers drill scheduled for the same day as the alleged “terrorist event."
Also, do you remember when it was revealed that Goldman Sachs shorted Transocean stock immediately before the explosions sank the rig? This clearly meant that the preferred Transocean insiders had their stock values insured against the impending collapse of their stock’s value. This is a blatant example of foreknowledge plain and simple!

Readers might recall that in Part Five that it was revealed that Transocean insured the Deepwater Horizon oil rig with Lloyds of London shortly before the “accident?” Transocean did not just insure their oil rig, they double insured the rig and Transocean unashamedly walked away with a 
$270 million dollar profit immediately following the explosion. I think even the MSM would have a hard time spinning these facts. Instead, the MSM just fails to report the facts as they occurred."

"Schlumberger says its crew left Horizon day of fire
SAN FRANCISCO Thu May 20, 2010 3:30pm EDT
(Reuters) - Schlumberger Ltd, the world's largest oilfield services company, said on Wednesday it had a crew on the Deepwater Horizon that departed only hours before the explosion and fire that engulfed the rig.
The company, which had not previously revealed its work on the Horizon, said in an emailed statement that it performed wireline services for BP Plc on the rig in March and April, completing the last services on April 15 and leaving a crew on standby in case any more were needed.
"On the morning of April 20, 2010, BP notified the Schlumberger crew that it could return to its home base in Louisiana," Schlumberger said in a statement, which a company spokesman confirmed by phone. He declined to comment further.
Wireline services relate to any aspect of well measurement logging that employs an electrical cable to lower tools into the borehole and to transmit data.
The wireline standby crew departed the Horizon at about 11 a.m. on one of BP's regularly scheduled helicopter flights, Schlumberger said. The explosion occurred at about 10 p.m. that night, and the rig sank into the Gulf of Mexico two days later as a massive leak from the well started.
Other oilfield services companies whose names were attached to the Horizon have seen their share prices battered due to fears about liability over the loss of the rig and 11 workers, and the resulting environmental damage of the oil spill.
Shares of Halliburton Co, which did various services on the Transocean-owned rig including well cementing, are down 22 percent since it sank. Shares of Cameron International Corp, maker of the rig's blowout preventer, are down 23 percent.
Schlumberger shares have fallen about 8 percent over the same period.

"Marine biology student Albert Andry III and his three high school buddies Ryan Chaisson, Wes Bourg, and Dustin King were fishing in Andry's 26-foot catamaran, the Endorfin, the afternoon and evening of April 20, 2010. They had experienced a great afternoon catching blackfins around BP’s "Amberjack Rig 109" –and had decided to spend the night 50 miles offshore under the protective shelter of the Deepwater Horizon rig, fishing for baitfish to be used the next day.

They were about 100 yards from the Deepwater Horizon when the massive rig'slights suddenly went out, and then the first of a series of massive booms shook the rig. Immediately, Andry began videotaping the sequence of events. His amazing tape can be viewed on YouTube -"

"Admiral Thad W. Allen assumed the duties of the 23rd Commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard on May 25th, 2006.  During his tenure as the top officer of the nation's oldest continuous sea service he led the effort to reform and modernize all aspects of the Coast Guard, thereby "improving and sustaining Mission Execution."  As Admiral Allen continually stated his ultimate aim was to make the Coast Guard a "change-centric" organization capable of quickly and efficiently adapting to meet the growing and ever-changing demands of the future.  Additionally he was the first high ranking member of the Federal government to embrace social media, pioneering the effort to connect to his audience through all manners of digital technology.
Although his Modernization program was an important aspect of what Admiral Allen accomplished during his tenure, he also led the service during a time when it responded to a number of significant national and international incidents, including hurricanes, floods, search-and-rescue cases, oil spills and other environmental incidents.  He led the effort to explore the changing Arctic, solidified the Coast Guard's relationships with the nation's other armed services and Federal partners, and reached out to the private sector to gain their input and trust.  During his final months in office he led the Coast Guard's exemplary response to the earthquake in Haiti and then, first as Commandant and concurrently as the National Incident Commander, he led the nation's response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill [and, allegedly, the spoliation of evidence of Serco's of deployment time-on-tag offenders with Lloyd's Register alibis and the use  of Coast Guard’s C4ISR systems for remote ignition of a helideck IED], holding the latter post well after his tenure as Commandant had come to a close.
Admiral Allen completed his four-year term as Commandant on 25 May 2010 and he officially retired from the Coast Guard on 30 June 2010."

Martha Stewart calls lockdown ‘hideous’: Martha Stewart was in an interview with Vanity Fair when she made this remark. By merely saying this, I bet she violated some intellectual property law somewhere.
Asked about the electronic monitoring device she must wear on her ankle — she has complained repeatedly that it irritates her skin — Stewart says she knows how to remove it.
"I watched them put it on. You can figure out how to get it off,” she is quoted as saying. “It’s on the Internet. I looked it up."
Her publicist’s eyes “widened with alarm” when Stewart made the remark. The article didn’t say whether Stewart claimed ever to have taken off the device.
Her lawyer is likely dead from a heart attack by now. 
 ….. I have read Martha's statement and through research of my own I can confirm the possibilities of these actions. I have yet to find anything online that has provided a step by step instruction like she has hinted towards; however, there are a few sites that provide enough information to be of use to anyone desperate enough. Though I do not condone the following actions, I will relay the information that can be found online. You can put 2 and 2 together yourself. The ankle unit sends an in-range signal every 38 seconds. This is the window for those who didn't catch that. If someone were to try and tamper with the unit you have to bypass 1 or all of 3 fields. The first is optical sensor that prevents a cutting of the band itself. Next, is a metal contact if the band is forced open with the screws taken out. Finally, there is an encryption method of the RF signal to prevent duplication. All three methods are good except for one overlooked flaw. One in theory could remove the pins, and using the window of 38 seconds, step outside of the signals range to remove the unit then reassemble the unit stepping back into the signal's range. If done correctly, the receiving unit will never receive the tamper signal and the wearer in theory would then be allowed to roam without worry of authority presence. NOTE1: I do not condone anyone trying this method or any other for it is unlawful to break any of the rules set in place while under house arrest and the participating party will therefore be sent back to jail subject to the PO's request. NOTE2: This 38 second window can only be confirmed with the DigitalTecnologies-2000 HMU4 Solution. Other HMU's will no doubt have a different timing sequence. NOTE3: Though this method can be misused, I have no doubt that future models will render this method useless. For example, in theory the ankle unit could send the tamper signal until the receiver responds leaving a window pointless. Other useful information can be found throughout the internet on how the units work and their relationship with each other; however, I only listed the most pertinent for this method. - See more at:"
"Serco loses Docklands Light Railway contract to the French
The new DLR contract will start on December 7, 2014
Published: 04 July 2014
Serco has lost a £125 million-a year contract to run the Docklands Light Railway to a joint venture partly controlled by the French government. 
The outsourcing giant had been operating the DLR since 1997 but was beaten by Keolis and Amey Rail in the tendering process. Keolis’ major shareholder is France’s state rail operator, SNCF.
The news is a huge blow to Serco’s new boss Rupert Soames, who yesterday admitted he expected to write down the value of some of Serco’s largest contracts.
The company, which operates the Boris bike scheme, has been under intense pressure since last year when it was found to have overcharged the Government on contracts to tag offenders.
It has already downgraded its 2014 profit forecasts three times and launched a share placing to raise cash.
 David Stretch, managing director of Serco’s transport business, said: "We are obviously disappointed that we have not been selected to continue to manage and operate the DLR.
“We will continue to provide DLR passengers with the best possible service until the new operator starts later this year and we will work closely with them to ensure a seamless handover."
Serco said the DLR contract had generated about £90 million, or 2%, of its annual revenues at a margin “significantly below the average level the group achieves on its contracts”. The seven-year Keolis contract is worth £700 million.
TfL’s managing director of London Underground and Rail, Mike Brown, said: "The DLR is a rail network that continues to support regeneration across a huge area of London and the economic growth of the city as a whole.

"The decision to appoint Keolis Amey Docklands was reached after a thorough and competitive procurement process, which will ensure the DLR continues to deliver an ever-improving high-quality, value-for-money service."
