    Another Oil Rig Explosion.

    CNN and FOX news reporting that an Oil rig exploded 80 miles off Louisiana coast; 12 people reported overboard and one missing, the Coast Guard says.

    UPDATE: http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2010/09/02...ident-in-gulf/


    Posted at 11:43 a.m.] U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Bill Colclough tells CNN that all 13 workers involved in the rig explosion are accounted for, but one person is injured.

    That no off shore drilling moratorium will stick out like a sore thumb now.

    Second Gulf spill puts moratorium back in question

    Just when America's ban on offshore exploration seemed like it might end, another disaster in the Gulf of Mexico put Big Oil back on the defensive.

    An offshore production platform owned by Mariner Energy Inc. caught fire Thursday morning about 200 miles west of BP's blown-out well. The incident raised more doubts in Congress about the risks of offshore drilling.

    "This explosion highlights the significant risks associated with offshore drilling, and that much is left to be done to keep America's workers and waters safe from those risks," U.S. Rep. Edward J. Markey, D-Mass., said in a statement.

    The Obama administration had been mulling a quick end to its drilling moratorium, now that BP has brought its leaking well under control. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said the Mariner explosion shouldn't affect a decision on the ban, and he would not link it with BP's well.

    "At this point based on what we know I don't want to marry those two up," Gibbs said.

    Everyone else will, however, said Fadel Gheit, an analyst with Oppenheimer & Co.

    As usual, the media gets it wrong - - - AGAIN.

    Latest reports from the Coast Guard were that there was NO explosion, only a fire of as yet undetermined origin. The fire was quickly brought under control.

    There is NO oil spill as this is not a working drilling rig, but a workover rig that is just maintaining two pipelines bringing oil to refineries on shore.

    There were NO missing workers (as originally reported), and of the thirteen men on the rig, one had minor injuries. All 13 were rescued, transported to a hospital and have since all been released.

    However, Lew's post is absolutely correct. Here we go with the moratorium - - - again.
