Here is an excerpt from an article about the oil spill in the Gulf. Notice the part I highlighted....



So far only sheens have reached some coastal waters. The oil has lingered in the Gulf for two weeks, despite an uncapped seafloor gusher. The slow movement has given crews and volunteers time to lay boom in front of shorelines, an effort stymied by choppy seas over the weekend.

Rig operator BP PLC continued to try to cap one of the smaller of three leaks, which if successful, could make it easier to install a containment system over the well.

BP's chief executive said a containment dome designed to cover the principal leak will be on the seabed Thursday, and will be hooked up to a drill ship over the weekend.

That wasn't a stationary rig set out in the ocean... it was a rig that was being logistically moved via truck to a scrap salvage yeard. the rig was trash, being scrapped at a salvage yard on land... nothing there to see...

With regards three leaks... um, one drill platform, three drilling locations?

I'll have to look into that to understand that...
