EXCERPT
LAGOS, Nigeria (AP)— Chevron Corp. says it is still trying to extinguish a five-day old fire on its rig off Nigeria's coast after presuming two foreign workers dead.

Chevron said Friday it is preparing to drill a relief well to fight the fire.
Ian Laidlaw, an official from FODE Drilling Ltd., which was operating the rig on Chevron's behalf and employed the two foreign workers, declined to give their nationalities.

Chevron announced Thursday that a search for the missing workers had been called off.

The San Ramon, California-based energy company says 152 other workers were rescued from the rig and a nearby barge after the fire broke out early Monday. Nigeria's state-run oil company blamed it on a buildup of gas pressure.
A coastal community says the fire is killing the fish and tinting the sky "orange-red."

MY TAKE

After the BP blow out Exxon Mobil took the lead to create a way for them and others to go back drilling. The creation of the MWCC was their way. I say their way all of the BIG GIANTS IN OIL AND GAS were a part of the group. They reported that MWCC was going to be a not for profit organization funded with one billion to make our waters safe. Chevron ranked at the top of that list.

So what is the problem Chevron, why don’t you use your cure?
