Oil Rig DisatersWe covered this link in our post “Piper Alpha Disaster – 19 Year Anniversary of Tragedy” but I think the site is good enough to warrant its own post. Here’s the site description:

A listing of major offshore oil and gas drilling-related incidents, with details and photographs of the drilling rigs involved. The Rig Incident List is an on-going project listing all major rig incidents and accidents researched so far. As time allows, a description of each incident will be put online with photos, where available.

Here are the top links from the site:
