The HITs just keep coming.

Check this out:

A fuel tanker carrying nine million litres of diesel has run aground in the far north of Canada and is at risk of spilling its cargo into the Arctic

Bob Cavnar reports that this was an active platform and producing about 1700 barrels a day. Please guys/gals, try to post accurate info and look up your sources before posting. Thanks

Looking for a link, but according to the AP on twitter, there was never a sheen, no leak.

"Initial report of an oil sheen in the water came from the oil platform owner's on-scene vessel, in production when blast occurred. AP reports that the Coast Guard now says there was no oil sheen; currently no kind of leaks or spill; all workers safe & rescued." USA Breaking News

The source from CNN by the Op reported that there were reports the rig was inactive.

The conspiracy nuts are going to love this one.


and on that note... My instinct says that this is about the geopolitical significance of Louisiana & the Mississippi River more than any other thing (even environmental terrorism- which is a very distinct possibility. Remember that Big Energy gains from cap & tax, etc). Somebody wants La cleared out.
Of all the rigs in the GOM, why only these? Is this the third incident this year? Fourth?

(just sayin)

this is getting out of hand....accidents happen all the time like this...its just now because of the previous one we are all tuned in to what is going on with oill drilling...we can't run our vehicles and everything else associated with crude oil if we don't have any....what happens when nobody is allowed to drill for oil anymore and we run out...then gas prices go to ten or fifteen dollars a gallon how are you environmentalist going to feel about it then...

So exactly hows 14,951,295 liters of oil supposed to "Walk up and get a cheeseburger"? (for those who want to know how i got the numbers: 5280*100*1 (1 foot for least damage) which is 528,000 cubic feet. Then multiply by 28.3168466 (the official cubic feet in a liter.) and you get 14,951,295L)

Don't mean to be rude or anything, but why would you participate in ATS if you have such a disparaging opinion of people who don't believe the government party line?

Its all very contradictive;

It was initially believed that a blast ripped through one of the wells on the Mariner Energy platform, west of the site where BP's Deepwater Horizon rig exploded in April.

But it has since been claimed that there was no explosion and the fire in fact broke out near staff living quarters on the upper deck.

and

"The issue is whether there is potential of any pollution, any leak. What we are hearing from Mariner Energy, the owner of the platform, is it's a producing platform not a rig.

"Therefore from what we understand at the moment it wouldn't be drilling for oil, although the company has many hundreds of platforms in that region that do drill for oil.


and

It could be that as a producing platform it might be storing some oil that has been brought up to the surface, but generally those platforms are used as staging points for other parts of the operation

this is the best bit:

The platform had not recently been in active production and was undergoing maintenance, the US Interior Department said.

BUT ????

However, Governor Jindal said there seven wells were believed to have been active at the time of the blast.

Guess the plan is just to confuse everybody.

I found a similar report and posted it earlier but it hasn't entered the discussion.

Beats me. I do know that describing a mile long 100 foot wide sheen is pretty significant. The Coast Guard went with it at first too and "confirmed" the sheen. Now suddenly its gone? Where did this sheen go? I mean seriously this entire story makes no sense and they have done nothing but backtrack on this whole thing. Don't be shocked if we have another "accident" before the winter arrives.

The point about corexit is that it harms more than it helps...and there are much safer alternatives to corexit which have been used effectively and safely in other parts of the world.

Another point about corexit is that Cheney has huge shares in the company and is making millions from it, which to a certain criminal group is much more important than any concern for the wonderful natural life in the Gulf and the vital health of the residents. In a certain criminal group these are of no consequence as long as the mllions keep rolling in.

Oil spills mean big money for certain criminal groups.

Well remember all that oil that wasn't collected from the Deepwater disaster "dissolved or evaporated." At least that's what the NOAA says. LMAO.

What if we are seeing a battle going on here that is between very powerful and influential new age thinkers, who are calling for free energy and the like, and their are targeting the oil industry to gain the influence of the people, who will eventually become fed up with oil companies and their influence of everybodys lives.

A diferent take on terrorism, but the same kind of terrorism in the eyes of TPTB.
