1 mile long, 100 foot wide Oil sheen from Mariner energy rig explosion spotted in water: Oil sheen seen near burning platform -Coast Guard

Oh no, not another one. Could this mean that the Gulf is that unstable right now


Also could this be the scape goat BP would be looking for to get out of accepting the blame/responsiblity for future polution levels within the Gulf.

A Little too convenient for my liking.

I was about to post this good news bad news article from Scientific American when I heard there is another, non-producing rig in the Gulf that exploded. People on other threads are already blaming Obama. What a waste of time that is given no American prez in at least 50 yrs has done anything other then photo ops. We aren't in control of our own space any more. Corporations have taken over.

The Gulf is unstable. Common sense would say, back off, evaluate the situation, sit down with a bunch of people who do know what is going on, come up with a viable plan, implement said plan & pray to what ever makes us feel better.

Common sense. The one thing we need that isn't leaking all over the Gulf.

I wasn't sure how to add the article from SA so, if you can't get to it let me know. I'll try again.

Coast Guard confirms burning oil platform was in production; unclear where sheen comes from

The Mariner Energy platform burning off Vermilion Bay was in fact producing oil and gas when it caught fire Thursday morning, the company and Coast Guard have confirmed.

maybe the pressure increase was not just a local event. did pressures triple at the new exploding rig? we will never know

Someone here did say that a pressure gauge did jump from like 2,000 to 3,000 and that was not long before the explosion. Not sure if these wells are connected through pipes at all either. Not even sure what the gauge is for though.

Your 1st report re 1mile x 100 ft sheen was around 1pm, your last one was at `3-3:30 pm est...that one saying the rig was producing
oil & gas... Check out this report total contradictory...

NEW ORLEANS | Thu Sep 2, 2010 5:44pm EDT

NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - An oil and gas platform operated by Mariner Energy burst into flames in the Gulf of Mexico on Thursday, but the U.S. Coast Guard said the crew of 13 escaped and there were no signs of an oil spill.

Snippet
["The boats and the aircraft on scene cannot see a sheen," U.S. Coast Guard Captain Peter Troedsson told a news conference in New Orleans.
Initially, Mariner reported there was a mile-long oily sheen on the water around the platform, according to the government.]

BP says the capping stack has been "detached." So I guess this is where it gets uglier.

Again, let me say, these people, BP, Thad Allen, the coast guard & darn near everyone else involved in this mess shouldn't be trusted alone with a can opener...I'm not even talking about the electric kind of can opener. I'm not sure they can operate their own TV remote controls or their the microwave. That would cause the need of checking on Omaha regularly.
( Sorry...a FAIL SAFE reference for those who haven't read the book. )

I'm OK with them running with sharp knives or scissors as long as they are the only people in the area.

Give them a nuke?? Oh, hell no.

Wonder how they are going to straighten the
well head?

Here's some photos...

I heard on NPR on my home this afternoon ~3pm EST that
the new blow in the gulf was in much shallower water &
not deep well. Wonder if they will be running all test for PAH's
Corexit, & everything else at least 2 + more times now...to get the oil finger prints from from all the rigs in order to separate
everyone's Bill of Damages!

Real quick thing to ask here. Would anybody know what well they are actually showing us? Is this well A or well B? I wish I was able to get back to watching and reporting more but laptop hdd went south and I am on a different computer that making it hard to keep up on the situation but will check in as much as I can. This sucks because things are going to be picking up real quick hear I have a gut feeling that something is not what is should be. Also where has all that pressure gone it does not stop on its own. Keep up the good work everybody.

I'm re-posting this in case you missed it...I was hoping DragonFire
would comment on it as well...

I thought this was a great read...A 3rd Well?

Houston, We Have A HUGE Problem ! ! ! (BP America is headquartered in Houston, TX)

Snippet
[The label “Well Location” intentionally left out the alphabet “A” as it was intended to be the well that was actually drilled which forensic analyses of the seabed debris determined to be 720 ft NNW of Well A. This mysterious “well that never was” (referred to as “S20BC”) is still being ignored publicly by the Authorities, BP and all those involved in the cover-up to continue duping the American public and world at large. This damaged S20BC well is the real gusher and the vertical conduit draining oil and gas out of the giant reservoir at 18,300 ft below mud line; not the bogus capped Well A.

Well A was drilled down to 5000 ft or thereof. It had to be abandoned on 13 Feb 2010 due to a broken drilling rod string which was jammed in the well. One must ask why a drill string of steel pipes could be jammed inside the well bore. Recently we hear BP admitting the possibility of formation collapse. And how could the formation collapse into the well bore without pressurized fluid forcing debris and jamming the drilling rods in the open section of the well?

So my independent geological model was right. Dr Bea was right. Matt Simmons was right. So did millions all over the world who did not fall for the Bogus Press releases and the blatant acts of Mass Deception.]

The reports that have been shown on here and elsewhere have to much evidence on them about the other wells they have drilled for anything that they say can not be taken to seriously any more. Hard to refute the other wells out there when the paperworks speaks for itself. As much info that has gotten out they can't hide it anymore, but they are doing their best to try.

I did a quick Google search on the well the article mentions...nothing came up in 4 pages...other than this. Doubt they are the least bit connected, but that is all that stood out.

Anyone here know where the lay lines run in the Gulf? I know what they are, I just don't know where they are. Is there any way of determining if todays blown up well & the Deep Horizon are any where near the same lay line?
