    Gulf Oil Rig

    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.
