Another Oil Rig Blows Up In Gulf!

Recommended Posts


An explosion has torn through an offshore oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, west of the site of the blast in April that caused a huge oil spill.

The blast, which threw 13 people into the water, was reported by a commercial helicopter company about 0930 local time (1330 GMT), Coast Guard Petty Officer Casey Ranel said.

It is unclear if the structure is a production platform or a drilling rig.

Seven helicopters, two airplanes and four boats are en route to the site.

The blast occurred around 130km (80 miles) south of Vermilion Bay along the central Louisiana coast.

Mr Ranel said smoke was reported but it is unclear whether the rig is still burning.

All 13 workers who fell into the Gulf are accounted for, the Coastguard said. On person is reportedly injured

Hard to say if this as bad as it sounds or just the media playing it up.

Of course, if it's a BP owned rig ...... sell sell sell.
