Well, at least it's not a drilling platform.

Gautier says the platform was not in active production

Whether that means it's connected to the reservoir or not is another story, but hopefully that means it isn't, and that everybody aboard is OK.

Well, they had to do something to stop these falling gas prices.

Smoke...it looks very black,

Production rig in shallow water.

I know they're not involved, but is the ink even dry on BP's first check for their fine?

And I just got gas.
 
2012-11-16 12:07:00 PM
This couldn't possibly true, because I saw a BP commercial on tv that said everything was just fine now and that the beaches are more beautiful than ever!

Oil rig explosion != failed blow out preventer and uncontained spill

That means that they haven't yet decided on a new Pope.

Now 2 dead, 2 missing. Not drilling at a deep water site like the BP rig.

We should have switched to gravel technology.

Company was probably just annoyed at lower gas prices :P

Clearly this will be bad. For Bush.

Don't worry. Sarah Palin will save us!
 
2012-11-16 12:18:33 PM
RIGHT ON!

This is just the cost of doing business..you wanna make an omelette of fail, you need to break a few eggs...

hilarious.

I'm going to pour some paint in the river to celebrate...

Have any legislators yet apologized to the responsible company of companies?
 
2012-11-16 12:20:33 PM
My previous comment should read "company or companies". I apologize for any confusion.

Will somebody think of the fish.
 
2012-11-16 12:21:43 PM
Non-event (my condolences to the families of those hurt or killed). Wake me up when the oil hits the oceanus.
 
2012-11-16 12:24:19 PM
Meh. What's the worst that could happen?
 
2012-11-16 12:27:14 PM
Apparently the fire is out or at least contained now. The platform is non-productive, i.e. not drilling anything. They were apparently preparing it to go back into production. There is no leaking well or anything else like that.
 
2012-11-16 12:27:22 PM
At least there's a plan to save the walruses.

Just in case anybody's inclined the panic, the datestamp on the .gif is 26/05/10, i.e. May 26, 2010.

Update: Coast Guard says fire is out. Two workers dead, according to platform owner. Two may still be missing. At least four transported in critical condition. 20-25 miles southwest of Grand Isle. Production platform, not in active production. 28 people aboard at the time of explosion.

Mine too.

Thank goodness we refine the oil out at see where the waste doesn't contaminate anything.
I mean anything important or tracable.
