    Exclamation Another Gulf oil rig explodes off La. coast

    GRAND ISLE, La. – An offshore oil rig has exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, west of the site of the April blast that caused the massive oil spill.


    Coast Guard Petty Officer Casey Ranel says the blast was reported by a commercial helicopter company about 9:30 a.m. CDT Thursday. Seven helicopters, two airplanes and four boats are en route to the site, about 80 miles south of Vermilion Bay along the central Louisiana coast.

    The Coast Guard said initial reports indicated all 13 crew members from the rig were in the water. One was injured, but there were no deaths.


    The platform owned by Mariner Energy is in about 2,500 feet of water, the Coast Guard said, and was not currently producing.

    The report saying the rig was "not producing oil or gas" doesn't help. WTH does that mean? Not producing? Was the well capped? Shut off? If so, why were there 13 employees on the rig? Would it matter if the well was "closed'?

    This is outrageous. We need - no - WE DEMAND answers. I have yet to find anyone covering this yet.

    Praying for all those affected - INCLUDING ALL THE BIRDS AND SEA LIFE!!!! So unfair to them.

    I read on an AP report that they were doing some sort of routine maintenance on the rig.

    snip

    The platform is a fixed petroleum platform that was in production at the time of the fire.

    It was producing about 58,800 gallons of oil and 900,000 cubic feet of gas per day. The platform can store 4,200 gallons of oil.

    BBM. Much more at link:
