I hear you. To some extent, there really is "nothing new under the sun." Improvements do tend to be incremental, and I think it is important to remind people of what's gone on before. Buzzi and Scioli and others contributed a lot on the diesel side of offshore performance. Credit does need to go where it's due.
You and others have piqued my interest enough to follow up with more detail from Mike Fiore at Outerlimits. Look for another piece to post (if I can catch him) later today.
And thanks for the encouragement.
