You can’t tell me this isn’t deliberate.. I’m beginning to wonder if these oil rig explosions and oil spills are reflective of something larger other than corporations cutting corners? Almost overnight the stories of what was going on in Michigan with their oil spill disappeared. BP has done a great PR job in removing a villanous face for their fiasco. Wonder how this latest thing will play out. I think its some sort of terrorism going on.. The question is whether its foreign or domestic..
GRAND ISLE, La. – An offshore oil rig has exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, west of the site of the April blast that caused the massive oil spill.
Coast Guard Petty Officer Casey Ranel says the blast was reported by a commercial helicopter company about 9:30 a.m. CDT Thursday. Seven helicopters, two airplanes and four boats are en route to the site, about 80 miles south of Vermilion Bay along the central Louisiana coast.
Ranel says it hasn’t been determined whether the structure is a production platform or a drilling rig or whether workers were aboard. Ranel says smoke was reported but it is unclear whether the rig is still burning.
