I checked the news and the first thing I saw was "Oil rig in Gulf of Mexico explodes". I honestly thought I was reliving April again.
Conflicting reports on if it was producing or not?
During the last week of August 2010, production from this facility averaged approximately 9.2 million cubic feet of natural gas per day and 1,400
barrels of oil and condensate.
I really don't believe in manipulating numbers to draw parallels but someone's bound to do it anyway, so here's mine.
The platform that exploded was called the Vermilion Oil production platform 380, 3+8+0=11, the number of workers killed in the Deepwater Horizon
Disaster. 11+2 (with 2 representing today, the second day of the month)=13, the number of survivors today.
The first word of British Petroleum and Mariner Energy both have 7 letters in it. The Vermilion explosion occurred in 340' of water, 3+4+0=7 and
Macondo, where Deepwater was drilling, has 7 letters.
Deepwater and Vermilion both have 9 letters
The Deepwater Horizon was 9 years old and The Vermilion exploded during September which has 9 letters and is the 9th month of the year.
The Deepwater Horizon was 9 years old and built in 2001. 9+2+0+0+1=12, the number of people initially accounted for in the Vermilion explosion.
The Deepwater Horizon exploded on April 20, 2010. 4+2+0+2+0+1+0=9, the month of the Vermilion explosion.
The Deepwater Horizon sank on April 22, 2010. 4+2+2+2+0+1+0=11 which I can interpret as 1+1=2, the day of the Vermilion explosion.
The Deepwater Horizon was owned by Transocean, which has 10 letters and represents the year of the Vermilion explosion. It happened on September 2,
2010. 9-2=7, 7+2+0+1+0=10.
