Gulf Oil Rigs and Hurricanes
Published Wednesday, September 21, 2005 by CCAer | E-mail this post
We have all experienced the effects of a hurricane tearing through the gulf, if only by a subsequent rise in oil prices. Now you can see part of the reasons why a hurricane affects the production of oil so much. RigLogix
have a couple of interactive maps
showing the location of oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico and hurricane tracks. Click on the Hurricane Katrina button
and see a map of damaged oil rigs. Identify an oil rig and get an update on the repair time. The Hurricane Rita map
doesn’t list damaged rigs but shows a more complete list of the rigs in the Gulf. Something to watch over the next few days as Hurricane Rita passes through.
