How was there air in the flooded pipeline?
"He said: "In hindsight, if I was instructed or had known that the pipeline was not straight but undulating, then I would have included that in the method statement, a step for measuring of the pressure at both risers, and if the pressure was not equal, then I would have equalised the pressure before removing the plugs."
He said on a level pipeline the pressure would be equal. "An inspection of the line by a diving team would not have revealed if the line was straight... From my experience working in Petrotrin and Paria and having installed some lines myself, I assumed that the information that the lines were straight was correct because in my experience, measures are put in place to ensure that the lines remain level. One of the reason for this is to avoid air pockets."
