A parish officials says the rig is not drilling at a deepwater site like the Macondo well that blew out in 2010. That blowout led to an explosion that killed 11 workers and led to the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history

OFF THE GULF COAST - KHOU-TV says that two people are dead and two people are missing after an explosion at a platform in the Gulf of Mexico.

In addition, four people have been airlifted to West Jefferson Hospital, two of them who are said to be in critical condition.

The platform is believed to belong to Black Elk Energry out of Houston. It produces both oil and natural gas.

“We cannot confirm or deny anything at this time, but we are assembling an incident command team right now,” said Black Elk Energy asset manager Kirk Trascher
He said several boats are responding to the fire, both Coast Guard and Good Samritans.

20 miles south of Grand Isle

Buddy of mine on Facebook just posted that he's on that platform.

Correction. He was on his way to the platform. Got bumped off the first flight and was going to take the 2nd.

Looks like at least an 8 pile platform or a 4 pile with a satellite structure but it's hard to tell from that far. Doesn't look like a jack-up rig is next to the platform from the picture.

Tell him that his platform has sustained an explosion and he needs to get the F off of facebook.
