I have been listening to 5320Khz all morning for USCG oil spill traffic and they JUST announced "Oil Rig fire IVO 28-44.12N 088-23.14W". UMIB Urgent Marine Information Broadcast (informs of Search and Rescue SAR event)

That is roughly 22 miles from the original Deepwater Horizon incident.

THERE IS ANOTHER OIL RIG ON FIRE!

Update: Just got live reports over shortwave that the fire was extinguished but they're still going to check it out because it might not be extinguished fully yet.

Will keep you guys updated.

More info, more info.....

It would be pretty suspicious if an other oil rig caught on fire so close to the deep water rig. (by the way, on average, how may oil rigs catch fire every year??)

Will follow your thread with much interest....

Peace

It's like this fire was intentional, and the crew put it out before anything could happen. I think this is going to go on A LOT MORE OFTEN!

And I highly suggest anyone in the gulf get a shortwave radio or a general scanner with a Yagi up high to scan USCG VHF marine bands.

They are now talking about Oil locations.

Here is a live feed: www.abovetopsecret.com...

BP supposedly is in the process of drilling two relief wells, roughly at odd angles to the DeepWater site. I wouldn't be suprised if in their haste incidents occur of this nature.

These kinds of incidents are not uncommon. We just don't hear about them because they don't amount to much.

Now, folks have their ears glued to their radios and naturally they're going to hear it all.

I'm not saying that there's nothing suspicious about this one, but oil drilling is pretty dangerous work and a lot of things can go wrong.

Thank God, most are not as catastrophic as this last spill.

Agreed. Coast Guard hadn't arrived on scene prior to me posting it, so they didn't know what was going on. They got a report that a rig was on fire.

Could it be from the same chemicals which killed the 11 people at the second site? Are the oceans now dispersing the deadly chemicals which will eventually destroy all of the drilling platforms?

How long until all the piers and vessels are affected?

Why call in the Military if this is a regular occurance?

Fire isn't an uncommon occurrence in drilling operations. That's a floating city that is powered by several diesel generators (I don't know how many, land rigs use anywhere from 2 to 4 and they are tiny in comparison). Miles of very high voltage cabling, kitchens, radio rooms, hundreds of electric motors doing jobs from moving drillpipe to powering pumps to running elevators...all on a floating platform that constantly sways (any unsecured wiring could be rubbing) and of course wear and tear due to vibrations from the drilling operations. All this while many of the components are exposed to the elements.

A fire could be from a thousand different causes, but most people automatically assume rig fire is related to the wellbore. Not true.

At least I hope it's not true in this case
