But Chuai wasn't exploding, it was being torn down by MGP. Maybe MGP is trying a new game and will trash NOLA next?

The latest explosion occurred on the Deepwater Horizon, a massive oil rig owned by Transocean Ltd., in Houston and leased to BP PLC as the rig was drilling about 52 miles southeast of Venice, La., in 5,000 feet of water. Most of the 126-member crew escaped from the burning oil rig but at least seven suffered critical injuries and early reports indicated 11 crew members were missing.

Unfortunately, the fire on the drilling rig Deepwater Horizon is only the latest example of the perils that oil rig workers in the Gulf of Mexico face. Other recent oil rig explosions include:

* March 2001—A blowout and fire in the Gulf of Mexico off Louisiana caused the collapse of the Ensco 51’s derrick, resulting in extensive damage to the platform.

* November 1989—An explosion on a Penrod Drilling Co. oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico injured 12 workers.

* February 1984—One man was killed and two others injured in an oil rig explosion off Texas in the Gulf of Mexico.

* June 1964—The C.P. Baker drilling barge, operating about 80 miles off the coast of Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico, burned and sank after a shallow gas blowout, killing 21 crew members and injuring 22 others.
