Quote from : Drill Rig Sinks Offshore of Venezuela (BP, RIG, STO, E)

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez posted a message on Twitter this morning that a natural gas explosion in the Caribbean sank a semi-submersible drilling rig.
The rig, called the Aban Pearl, was owned by India's Aban Offshore Ltd. and all 95 crew on board were safely evacuated according to Chavez.
No cause was given for the explosion and Venezuelan officials say that the rig explosion poses no environmental risk.
But the blast comes a little more than three weeks after a rig owned by Transocean Ltd. (RIG) and operated for BP plc (BP) exploded in the Gulf of Mexico leaving 11 workers missing and presumed dead, and leaking an estimated 5,000 b/d of crude oil into the Gulf.

Internationally a Alaskan Pipeline Spill not too long after that. Not to mention the Venezuela sinking as you've mentioned, and a Oil Tanker sinking in Malaysia at the same time as the Venezuelan incident.
