Rig Explosion Kills At Least 32 [Video]
This one won't spill millions of gallons of crude into the gulf, but it's tragedy on an even bigger scale than the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Oilandgaspeople.com reports at least 32 people were killed when a gas line apparently ruptured, triggering an explosion on Platform 10 on the Guneshi Field in the Caspian Sea. The incident happened on Friday, in heavy seas. Details are sketchy, due to restrictions on media in the region. Lifeboats were reportedly blown against the platform by 26 foot seas, hampering rescue efforts. Gulf coast residents know the horror. Please keep these people in your prayers.
