    Blue Marlin bill stuck in Crude oil Loading Hose off coast of Angola.

    Imagine the speed this fish was moving at to get its bill through this pipe!

    These are pictures of the floating load hose on the FPSO Girassol in Angola, Africa that was pierced by a blue marlin. Load operations were shut down for a few days while they replaced the hose.

    For reference, this terminal produces about 250k barrels of oil a day and this loading hose is approx 24in in diameter.

    Talk about sticking your nose in somebody else’s business.
