This happened to a BP platform off the coast of India. BPN platform wellheads were hit by one of the large work boats in Mumbai High North around 4pm Friday. BPN platform is gone. You can see part of it falling in the water in the last few pictures. Over 300 people were on board, so far only 2 confirmed dead. There are 3 choppers and Coast guard picking up people from the water. A lot of people jumped, apparently. Kind of scary...

You're right ToyotaPilot, these pictures are over a year old. Have already made their rounds thru the O & G community. Guess RealDealFountain could be correct since it did happen on a Friday.

I remember it being last year, I just hadn't seen these upclose pictures until someone forwarded an email to me and I copied the text off the email. I can add a date to the text if that would satisify some of you. ;)

We'll have to compare people we know and find the common link. :rotfl:

I wonder how the fishing was affected. Also, imagine jumping from that rig onto one of the barnacle encrusted pylons...
