Mariner Energy Shares Plunge On Reports Of Explosion At A Company-Owned Platform

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Update: the explosion is on a Mariner operating platform in the Vermillion 380 field. This is not a rig.

From CNN:

An oil rig has exploded 80 miles off the coast of Louisiana, with 12 people overboard and one missing, the Coast Guard said Thursday morning.

Rescue attempts are underway for at least 12 people, Coast Guard spokesman John Edwards told CNN. 13 people were on board the rig total, Edwards said, noting 12 have been accounted for, but one person was missing.

The accident took place 80 miles off the coast of Louisiana on the Vermilion Oil rig 380, which is owned by Houston-based Mariner Energy.

The Coast Guard has multiple helicopters, an airplane and several Coast Guard cutters en route. It's unknown if there are any injuries.

The description of the Vermillion 380 field from the company's 10-K

At year-end 2009 estimated proved reserves attributed to our
Vermillion 380 field were 33.2 Bcfe, consisting of
approximately 47% oil and NGLs and 53% natural gas. During 2008
and 2009, we drilled five wells and added additional production
capacity on the “A” platform. Hurricane Ike damaged
the structure with the rig on the platform, causing us to
suspend drilling while underwater structural repairs were made.
We brought the platform back on production at reduced rates
until the facilities upgrade was finished. The platform is
currently producing approximately 28 MMcfe per day. Our
working interest in this block is 100%. Production at Vermillion
380 was approximately 1.1 Bcfe in 2009.

Completely off topic but always in topic as it speaks to nonsense in our markets.  "I want my Salesforce.com" video (2 minutes) 

aka why buying high beta stocks is always good since they always go up, in "I want my MTV" style spoof.  I can't do it justice.. laugh out loud stuff.

I worked my way through college working in the GoM (and Alaska amoungst other places). 

It's a dangerous place and a dangerous business.  Always has been.

I saw more than my share of rig fires back in the '70's but no Walter Cronkite (although I did see a NBC correspondent once - in bar in Fairbanks, but that's another story for another time).

This is not a well being drilled.

And yes, I work in healthcare finance and I worked in the oil field to finance my college.  GoM and Alaska (amoung other locations).

There will be some 'spill' simply due to the way production equipment shuts down but as far as another 'BP Deepwater Horizon' ... not likely.

If it was sabotage, it's hard to say who.

Probably not environmental extremists.  They don't really have the capability to hit targets a mile underwater.

Possibly insiders on the rigs, but it would be extremely coincidental to have it happen on two rigs from two companies like this.

International covert ops?  The US sabotaged that Russian oil facility during the cold war.  I think some of the work on the BP blowout preventer was contracted out to China.  No info yet on if something similar on this rig, but it seems far fetched.

Unless there's more evidence, I'd have to go with the most likely culprit- extremely lax safety standards and corner cutting.

Bob Doll (MS) used that "it can't get much worse" logic a bit ago to defend his perma-bullish stance. 

In 2008 we were clearly hours from a collapse of the banking system. Since then nothing has been fixed, just papered over with even more debt. Cracks are showing everywhere. The shills suggest there is zero probability for another decline, much less a crisis? Whistling past the graveyard with the hard earned savings of sheeple everywhere.

NEW ORLEANS -- One person is missing after a rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico, about 80 miles south of Vermilion Bay, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

 

It happened around 9 a.m., and as of 10:15 a.m., the rig was still burning, the Coast Guard said. Rescue crews from New Orleans and Houston are responding.

 

Officials said there were 13 people aboard the rig, and all but one are accounted for.

Or in any number of other locations.  Those of us who actually have to, you know, do real work, out in the real world, can't get any of it done with a bike, scooter, transit bus, etc.

Internal combustion is not the only option.  A team of horses will work, too.  Electric or other alternative will be an option some day.   But right now, anyone relying on their own two feet and a bike or scooter is fooling themselves, and living off work done by other people's transportation.  It's downright silly when they start getting smug about it.

Good Lord, too true!  Full disclosure - I own/drive not one but two Prius' (Prii?).  Bought the first in FEB 05 and the second in AUG 06.  Love them both, have over 100k miles on both, zero problems (knocks on wood).  Bought them because, well, I'm a geek and they're a geek car - they're also a legit mid-size interior so the kids have their space in the back on the way to Grandma's.

I occasionally get fellow Prius owners who, usually at a stop light or at a gas station, want to engage me on how it is we are the sole enlightened among the knuckledragers who are "saving the planet".

You should see the looks on their faces when I flip them off and floor the 78-hp engine pulling away.

And Coop (below)?  Awesome rant, sir!

Thanks, Doc.  I think Prii are probably great cars, I have nothing against them, or the people who drive them.  (well people who don't think they're saving the world by driving one anyway) They simply do not suit the purpose of working construction, therefore I have never even looked at one.

For the record, while the rant was facetious, I have belched out people on bikes with the pickup a few times.  It's actually pretty damn funny.  Redneck maybe, but funny.

Apache Corp., the second-largest independent U.S. oil producer, agreed to buy Mariner Energy Inc. for $2.7 billion in cash and stock to boost production and reserves in deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Mariner owners will get 0.17043 a share of Apache and $7.80 in cash for each of their shares, or $26.22 at yesterday’s closing price, the Houston-based companies said today in a statement. The value is 45 percent higher than Mariner’s closing price yesterday. Apache will assume $1.2 billion of debt.

What have I done for the planet, lol.  I bought a new suv, that put people to work, the profits were used by the corporation to increase their efficiency.  Now they use energy and inputs more efficiently to produce and better your luddite existence.  I will use that SUV to drive to several business appointments today to make more money to improve economic conditions for all..

So, this is gonna be used to justify increased taxes and "regulations" right? Isn't this the catalyst for the OBomber to get his agenda running? Can't be wasting 2 oil rig crises now can we?

 

How long are we gonna let this complete regulatory caputure go unhearalded and unresolved?

Every day I look forward to the complete systemic collapse a little more.

Hmm, 2nd explosion.  Must be pesky eco-terrorists. 

Can't be another sign of corporate fuedalism.

So where is the live footage, or any footage really?

 

The media doesn't seem to be making much effort on this story. Makes me wonder if they are being told to back off...

I've started a holiday, similar to Festivus.  It's called Punch a Pretentious "Environmentalist" in the Face Day.  It will coincide with Earth Day so they will be easier to identify.
