This is a pretty big production rig and if the reports coming in are that is exploded without warning are true this could be very bad news.


It's a Platform, not a Rig. This won't be another BP Spill...Too many safety devices in place.

Just got word that 4 more were transported to the hospital with very serious injuries.

Black Elk Energy Company out of Houston owned the platform.
