Thanks Curtis for putting this interview on. I hope this answers a lot of questions that people have about this incident. My familys thought and prayers are with each of these men and women and there familys. I know it was a bad fire that mourning when we saw the glow. We were about 33 miles away when it happened. The night crew sad that they could see the flames shooting above the horizon that night, when it happened. Thank God for those that were able to get off. This will be a incident that will be talked about for years to come. Thanks again .

Thanks, Curtis. So great to hear an authenticate, informed account. Someone needs to speak up in the press for both TransOcean and BP and for the people that work in the Oil Industry...they are working in challenging and dangerous environments so all those critics can drive their cars. I have nothing but awe and respect for the guys that work the rigs, and the engineers that do nothing but their best to design systems that are as secure as possible. I am so, so sad that this has happened, but it's amazing that it happens so seldom considering the power of nature, that systems can fail even when constantly tested, and our being just simply only human.

Very brave individual to give a survivors account of this catastrophe. It's a sad state of affairs that we have to be muzzled because of litigation issues when all we wish for is a safe environment to work in. Condolences to the families of the deceased, hopefully giving your life will not be in vain.

I am so sorry for the families of the men lost in this tragedy. The tragedy now will be the MSM trashing of the event. Politics are now envolved, and the beating of gums will go on by every politcian who needs a boost in their ratings. I sure that the obamanation will have field day, and punish the industry, resulting in further weakening of USA as a whole. May God bless and comfort the people who lost their loved ones.
