Gulf Oil Rig (http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2010/09/02/rescue-efforts-underway-after-oil-rig-accident-in-gulf/?hpt=T1&iref=BN1)

Unsure if it's a production rig or a drilling rig. So far no reports of oil spilling. :duh:

13 on rig have been accounted for.

:eek: Hopefully since it wasn't actively producing there won't be another massive spill.

Deepwater Horizon wasn't producing yet either, though.

:shuffle: I forgot about that. I guess the way I read the blog on CNN I took it to mean it was a rig that was no longer actively producing, so perhaps the well below was already capped off.... Or at least that was my hope.

As if Deepwater Horizon wasn't enough for a sign for rig contractors to be hard-asses regarding safety checks....:rolleyes:

At least there's been no reports of anyone dying, and hopefully it wasn't that far out into the Gulf that it would make it difficult to fix.

Yahoo is reporting there is already a mile long oil slick. :wall:
