Re: Transocean Deepwater Horizon is on fire
Those photos came from the Max Chouest, more than likely - the ones that I took can be used by anyone that is interested. I have been contacted by several news organizations. The rig, even though it has been moving, is still connected to the riser. We're in 7,000 of water.....so that is expected...to have an appreciable watch circle. One of our vessels is sending down an ROV to see if they can kill the well. Earlier, there was fear that the rig would capsize and the fire boats moved out and then rig fire just exploded higher. The boats are back in fighting the fire, but it's not much use without killing the source.
