    there are currently 60 rigs operating in the gulf. The info you posted shows production platforms. Big difference between a drilling rig and a production platform.

    one of the biggest misconceptions about nuclear power at the moment is this: It will end our energy dependence foreigners. The truth is it will not. That's the dirty little secret most people don't know about nuclear power in the United States these days.

    Trends I'm Watching: U.S. Imports 92% of Uranium for Nuclear Power
    Uranium give you a lot more bang for your buck -- that's probably a huge understatement.

    It's not about nuclear energy ending foreign dependence -- the two aren't even really related in that sense. Our cars don't run on nuclear energy... Yet...



    The point is, getting more nuclear plants up and running is about diversification, cost efficiency, cleaner energy. Our electric bills may go up for a time (depending on you state) but over the long haul, energy will become cheaper to produce and bills will go down.

    Actually you are still wrong.
    "An offshore platform, often referred to as an oil platform or an oil rig, is a large structure used to house workers and machinery needed to drill wells in the ocean bed, extract oil and/or natural gas, process the produced fluids, and ship or pipe them to shore."

    I never said rotary rig. I said "rigs" and that covers all.

    Your definition describes a drilling rig. Newsflash: all drilling rigs are, "rotary", rigs. They don't hammer drill pipe in the ground anymore.

    By your definition of what a, "rig", is, there are only 60 rigs operating in the GOM and only 3,200 operating world wide.

    Not in the industry it isn't. You can source whichever non-industry definition you want and you're still going to be wrong.

    This is your comment:

    We have been drilling our own oil for the last hundred years. There are over a thousand rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. US oil companies have cut back drilling since demand has dropped.
    You claimed that there are thousands of drilling rigs operating in the GOM and that's simply not true.

    Big difference, wouldn't you say?

    I said there are thousands of rigs in the Gulf and that is absolutely true. Platforms are rigs by everyone's definition. The term "rig" covers it all.
    I never said drilling rig.
    You have been proven wrong. Be a man and admit it.
