Photograph of Offshore Drilling Rig on Fire (Unknown) 1980’s, 8x10 in Excellent Condition

This 8” x 10” photograph was taken in 1980's by a Navy Chief Photographers Mate. It came from his estate. I could not identify the oil rig that is on fire. The photo is in excellent condition, see photo for more detail.

Drilling for oil is inherently dangerous. Whether offshore in the Gulf or in the oilfields of West Texas and the Northeastern United States, oil rig workers are among the most skilled and most at-risk workers in the nation.
Oil companies and rig workers must take extreme precaution during all parts of the drilling process to avoid disaster. Even one mistake or missed safety procedure can lead to a catastrophic blowout. Unfortunately, oil companies often cut corners to save time and money. In doing so, they put the lives of the workers at risk. Fires and explosions that occur on oil rigs are devastating offshore accidents. The injuries workers sustain from oil rig accidents result in long-term consequences for themselves and their families.
