Seriously, wtf. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_gulf_rig_explosion

GRAND ISLE, La. – An offshore petroleum platform exploded and was burning Thursday in the Gulf of Mexico about 80 miles off the Louisiana coast, west of the site where BP's undersea well spilled after a rig explosion.
The Coast Guard says no one was killed in the blast, which was reported by a commercial helicopter flying over the area Thursday morning. All 13 people aboard the rig have been accounted for, with one injury. The extent of the injury was not known.

This explosive story is sure to spark more heated debate about the merits of off shore drilling.

Appears a bit of oil leaked, but the platform is only in 340ft of water.

NEW ORLEANS, La. – A mile-long oil sheen spread Thursday from an offshore petroleum platform burning in the Gulf of Mexico off Lousiana, west of the site of BP's massive spill.
Coast Guard Petty Officer Bill Coklough said the sheen, about 100 feet wide, was spotted near the platform owned by Houston-based Mariner Energy Inc.

Haven't oil companies learned from BP's blunder?

Seriously, wtf is going on, or have things just been more apparent due to media attention since then?

No oil leak.

The BP disaster is what you get when nearly EVERY safety net is mismanaged and not enforced, and the federal government is literally smoking meth with the rig managers.

A ban on drilling is not needed and it needs to be lifted ASAP to help the economy recover in that region.

This particular incident isnt an environment issue and is more of a work safety issue.

I didnt suggest it was anything to do with environment issues.

We depend too much on oil to keep our cars going, our electricity pumping, our tanks rolling, and this is just one of many examples of the price we must pay.

And yes its a Health And Safety issue. *Sigh* Anyone remember the days when it wasnt called H&S and just called, you know, ***king ''Common Sense''?

That's a cover up operation. To show people that B.P.'s case is not unusual after I revealed the real purpose to create B.P. oil spill. Here is my article:


The purpose is to push Great Britain to support US in coming war on Iran.

BP originates from “The National Iranian Oil Company” in 1953, and was ousted from Iran in 1979. When US wants to start a war in Iran, they need again the ally of the Great Britain like what they had when Bush started Iraq invasion. But the puddle Tony Blair is not at the seat. To extort Britain to join the coming Iran war, the Gulf oil spill was created to shake the foundation of the BP. To save BP from the financial trouble – joining the Iran war.

Iran Accountable for BP Oil Spill

In order to pay for the damages it caused to U.S. businesses and to itself, BP will likely resort to its historic strategy of how it became an oil giant in the first place. And the U.S. will once again help the corporation as we did in 1953 when a covert CIA plot overthrew Iran’s democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh and instated an authoritarian regime in order to acquire that country’s oil.
The coup proved to be a successful covert experiment for the U.S. when The National Iranian Oil Company was transformed into British Petroleum in 1954…..

In 1979, Iran’s Islamic Revolution ousted BP from the country and attained back its resources; but for the past few years U.S. officials have again been looking toward Iran, which still has the world’s third largest oil reserves.

I know right. Idiots can't even operate and maintain a simple oil rig without "guidelines" and "procedure." Morons.

I think most production plants have safety issues and precautions. Even nuclear, coal, solar, etc. You ever take a tour of a manufacturing or production plant of any kind and you'll see "No Lost Time Accidents Since _____"


The amount of time is not always a long time :eek:

It was sabotage.
Somebody knew in advance. It was meant to happen. That’s why Goldman Sachs, Halliburton and BP’s Chief, all could make money on it.

'And The Sea Shall Turn To Blood'...

Mother Jones magazine reported:

'Tony Buzbee, a lawyer representing 15 rig workers and dozens of shrimpers, seafood restaurants, and dock workers, says he has obtained a three-page signed statement from a crew member on the boat that rescued the burning rig's workers.

The sailor, who Buzbee refuses to name for fear of costing him his job, was on the ship's bridge when Deepwater Horizon installation manager Jimmy Harrell, a top employee of rig owner Transocean, was speaking with someone in Houston via satellite phone.

Buzbee told Mother Jones that, according to this witness account, Harrell was screaming, "Are you @#$%&! happy? Are you @#$%&! happy? The rig's on fire! I told you this was gonna happen.'

Yes, and nothing was done because it was meant to happen.

U.K. kneeling down (10/4/2010)
BP oil rig in Gulf was damaged in April 20, 2010. I alleged it was sabotage because big heads all knew in advance. Goldman Sachs, BP’s Chief all sold their BP stocks days before the case broken. Halliburton also bought an oil clean-up company just a week before the rig collapsing. Everything follows the steps of 911 sabotage when there was a “Bin Laden trading” of stock which made money on the coming 911 attack. The insiders are experts to take advantage on their plot.

BP was not able to stop the oil leaking in following month. The pressure increased on U.K.. Watch the time table:

“ U.K. - U.S. relationship thaws
By Helene Cooper
New York Times

Washington - It was not quite the Tony Blair-Bill Clinton love fest of 1997, but President Barack Obama and the newly minted British prime minister, David Cameron, appeared game to do everything they could Tuesday to take some of the recent chill out of the relationship between their countries. “
Cameron will follow its predecessor to help the U.S. to continue its “war on terror” in Mid-east. Interesting thing is the media even dare not to say Tony Blair- George Bush love fest but replaced it with Bill Clinton because that would otherwise reveal its attention - Cameron would join Obama in War on Iran, just like Blair joined Bush in War on Iraq.

Goldman Sachs knew Gulf oil leak in advance.

Quote, "No joke: Goldman Sachs shorted Gulf of Mexico

It turns out that Goldman Sachs really did place shorts on TransOcean stock days before the explosions rocked the rig in the Gulf of Mexico sending stocks plunging while GS profits soared -- benefitting once again from a huge disaster, having done the same with airline stocks prior to 911 then again with the housing bubble.
by Sterling D. Allan
Pure Energy Systems News

On Apr. 30, the Huffington Post published a story stating:
In what is looming as another public relations predicament for Goldman Sachs, the banking giant admitted today that it made "a substantial financial bet against the Gulf of Mexico" one day before the sinking of an oil rig in that body of water.

The new revelations came to light after government investigators turned up new emails from Goldman employee Fabrice "Fabulous Fab" Tourre in which he bragged to a girlfriend that the firm was taking a "big short" position on the Gulf.

Goldman Sachs sold $250 million of BP stock before spill - Firm's stock sale nearly twice as large as any other institution; Represented 44 percent of total BP investment (RawStory; June 2, 2010)

Halliburton knew Gulf oil spill in advance too.

Disaster capitalists: Halliburton to make money off oil spill
By Daniel Tencer
Friday, June 18th, 2010 -- 3:10 pm

Does a company that both builds oil rigs and cleans up oil spills have any motivation to prevent oil rig disasters?
That's the question some people in business and politics are asking themselves after Halliburton's purchase of an oil clean-up company 10 days before the Deepwater Horizon explosion that killed 11 workers and launched the worst oil spill in US history.
Some observers see a conspiracy in the actions of the company once headed by Dick Cheney. Halliburton, which built the cement casing for the Deepwater Horizon's drill, announced its purchase of Houston-based oilfield services company Boots and Coots for $240 million on April 9, just 11 days before the Deepwater Horizon explosion.
