The explosion on an oil platform in Louisiana (USA)


Noise from the explosion was heard and a few km from the platform. Locals report that the flames erupted on the rig, could be seen from an impressive distance. It literally illuminates the surface of the salt lake. In extinguishing the fire and evacuating the wounded involved not only boats, but also helicopters.

In the state of Louisiana and the company that owns the platform, establish the causes of the explosion. In this case, as stated, is "the consideration of all possible versions." About what version of the incident is considered a specially formed commission, to this minute is not reported.

    The missing person most likely died .. Condolences to relatives ..... But what about shale gas and oil? Well them, these dangerous platforms? Or is it still more PR and politics?

      Glory to GOD that it was not in the Gulf of Mexico that exploded ...
      Americans least of all think about the planetary health of our mother EARTH ... because of them, life on EARTH can be brought to the brink of survival and existence.

        It’s just in the Gulf of Mexico that it’s profitable for us, it’s getting colder in Europe.

          Everything is so ... but as a consequence, intensive permafrost thawing will begin in the northern latitudes of RUSSIA or glaciers in mountain ranges ... the consequences are unpredictable ... a chain of climate disturbances on the EARTH
          no one knows where it will end.

            it will end where it should, everything has been calculated for a long time, and even publicly discussed. but it’s not much advertised since it is already the future that comes today.
            the northern sea route is liberated, and those times come that were once happy, when western Europe lay under a glacier, and eastern Europe to the Urals and the Arctic Ocean was almost subtropics, these are exactly the times that were described as a golden age (from the point view of morality and biological, not technological civilization). and therefore, it is not without reason that many have already claimed that the time is coming for Russia.
            but part of the land in Siberia will be flooded, so there is a ban on construction in some riverine cities.

              Let me tell you how it was. About 10 thousand years ago, mammoths became extinct beyond the Arctic Circle, and food remained in their stomachs and their meat did not go bad and turned out to be in permafrost. Somehow suddenly by accident - this coincided with the breakthrough of the Bering Isthmus, which connected Eurasia with America exactly 10 thousand years ago. So, the Gulf Stream met a counter current and
              in the Iceland region, where he was already divided into two streams, the oncoming slowed down, stopped, turned around ... When there was no oncoming, the whole arctic warmed up, there were no Arctic ice winds. You can return everything, just block the Bering Strait dam, but after the destruction of the United States for the ice is our advantage ...

                To fill a dam of 83 kilometers is a megaproject ... We have been building a bridge to the Crimea for 14 years for 4 years .... and that’s to say, to put up supports is one thing, and to make a dam is another ... Even if you make a temporary coefficient. x3 on the embankment, then (83/14) * 3 = 17 times more labor-intensive than the Crimean bridge .... And the bridge is going to be commissioned at the end of 2018. That means 6 years * 17 = 102 years ... nobody will build a dam for 100 years. ... Although stop .... - the Kerch Strait - The greatest depth, 18 m, berengov - the greatest depth 91m .... In my opinion this closes the topic radically .... Thank you for your attention ...

                  Our goal is not shipping. There is more to it, terrorizing. Therefore, the project is extraordinary. Recovery Hyperborea. The current level of civilization is within reach. The winnings are colossal, elephants and bananas in the middle lane, agriculture beyond the Arctic Circle, etc. Alaska and northern Canada will also flourish. The project is not centuries, not millennia, but even more.

                  American civilization will die unambiguously, either from our thermo-nuclear technologies, or from a supervolcano, or from the La Palma landslide. Or from all three factors at the same time. Magma boils under the Yellowstone cork, the La Palma ditch has already reached several meters. For starters, I would help La Palma, there is only a push.

                  First: you still need to get to Alaska, between you Canada is 800 kilometers along the shortest path, and 65 kilometers of the Bering Strait separates us laughing
                  Secondly: in order to settle down in Alaska, you must at least have infrastructure there. It turns out that due to the lack of marching McDonald's, it will be uninteresting for exceptional warriors to wait laughing
                  Thirdly: the indigenous population of Alaska, the Eskimos, direct "relatives" of the Russian Chukchi, can even expel uninvited waiters laughing
                  Fourth, ask about religion in Alaska. You will be surprised - the vast majority of residents profess Orthodoxy laughing
                  Fifth: there are the graves of our ancestors, suddenly the thought comes to visit them laughing
                  PS In Russia, there are sayings: "The one who laughs last is laughing" and "Do not say" Hop ", until he jumped" ...

                      This is not true. 79% of the total population are Christians. Of these, 47% are Protestants. 14% are Catholics. Orthodoxy is not as widespread as you think. Data from statistics or Wiki

      It’s not us who’s not ours, ours walk there but don’t touch potential enemies, peaceful people. But now we’ll take the samples, last time, before the price of oil rose to a hundred bucks per barrel, the platforma took off in the Gulf of Mexico. And ours there a little shuffled and the price of oil flew up for a hundred bucks. God grant that now also happened. We then solidly bought BP shares at a cheap price and much more on the little things .... in securities. laughing Well, we are not elected, we are just normal Slavs building capitalism.

We live on a planet - a moment, in planetary terms, probably not a single civilization has lived a full cycle. No, everything needs to be fixed, on your neck. On one side is the day, on the other night is the day. A century-old cycles are unknown to us.
