Some neat U.S. Coast Guard pictures here, here and here of BP Plc’s Thunder Horse oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico, which took on a list of 20 to 30 degrees after Hurricane Dennis passed through. (Latest status update here.) BP has said there’s been no indication of any leakage of fuel or other hazardous substances and is working to rebalance the platform.
A Pic in happier times.
Climbing that rig probably gives new meaning to “Peak Oil”. I’ll bet the crew that was manning it during the hurricane had to change their shorts after the big tilt happened.
I’m pretty sure I read it was evacuated (abandoned) during the hurricane. They better hurry up and get it level, another storm is heading their way.
