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 and RigZone 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.
