Lens flare that's all.
Although it could be "Spock and Bones" beaming down for a sandwich in the crew mess of a support boat" - I think my scenario is equally as plausible as the original claim.

Ya the blue light is reflecting off the ocean water.
It cannot be an artifact than.
It looks just like those huge spotlights that are used often for many decades.
I really am thinking it may be a few large spot lights that are pointed upwards perhaps to aid in locating the rig at night.
Here is a pic of what I am talking about.
The light beams are almost always BLUE hued as well.

Weaponized lasers are pulsed. They are not fired in continuous beams.
The destructive effect of a weaponized laser is not directly from burning or melting. It is from mechanical shear, caused by the spontaneous vaporization of the target material- that is to say, an explosion. To an observer, the effect of a high-energy laser strike would look much like a conventional explosive detonation.

Sounds like another thread I saw on ATS where someone was speculating that the Boeing airplane with the massive laser on board had shot the oil rig which caused the hole in the helipad. Do some satellites even have a flouride laser on them because that sounds extremely expensive and kind of out there although im sure there is one on a drawing board at DARPA or something?
