I don't want to die! I don't want to die.
Mike Williams: You're not going to die. Trust me.
When the Emergency Disconnect Sequence is attempted from the bridge, closing the BOP shear rams to cut the drill pipe and disconnecting the Riser from the BOP, the crew check the blown out well for any change in the fire or flow intensity for an indication of positive outcome of the BOP closure and successful disconnect. Given that the BOP is at the seabed, and the Riser and the drill pipe above the cut and disconnection are full of hydrocarbons up to the surface, it would have taken hours for the blow-out and fire to subside. Therefore, in such a situation, you activate your emergency shut down, and you leave the vessel as fast as possible, hoping for the best.
During the opening logos and first few opening credits, you can hear a real life audio clip from the trial that ensued following the disaster.
