7. So what about the rigs that are already pumping?
There should be feds crawling all over the current rigs inspoecting them down to the last screw.

Here's a stupid science question... If there is a rig that is pumping oil and found to be a hazard/safety violator...how do they shut it down? isn't it one of those things that once the hole is drilled they HAVE to keep pumping the oil or it will back up and blow?


just wondering how this works
