Burning Continues, Chevron Seeks Drill Relief Well

By now, many have heard of the oil rig disaster that struck offshore Nigeria on January 16, 2012. Since Chevron's KS Endeavor jack-up rig catching fire on Monday, the entire operation has been abandoned - the emergency called for complete evacuation. Unfortunately, two rig workers remain missing.

Now, as the rig continues to burn it has partially collapsed and the Chevron company is being called upon to take action. As such, they have contracted Transocean to drill a relief well; the hope being that it will account for the natural gas condensate (wet gas) that is currently oozing into Nigeria's ocean.

The inherent dangers of jack-up rigs cannot be denied, and the current fiasco that Chevron is facing is evidence to this fact. It is still too early to tell how much damage the Chevron incident will ultimately inflict on the environment; however, it is safe to assume that its effects will be felt, even if only in minor ways.

An oil rig explosion attorney from Arnold & Itkin LLP is on hand to address the legal matters of offshore explosions such as Chevron's KS Endeavor. It may take a great deal of time to see the environmental effects of the oil rig explosion in Nigeria, but other effects have already been seen.
