Alaska oil rig stranded in high seas

By Accidents

Bad weather did not allow crews from going to an oil drilling ship to see if there is any damage after the big ship went aground off an island in the Gulf of Alaska.
Plane and helicopter owned by a Coast Guard went to Kulluk (the name of the islands) to gather information but the bad weather did not allow the crews to board the drilling rig.
It is known the the Royal Dutch Shell drilling rig has 143,000 gallons (541,300 liters) of diesel and about 12,000 gallons (45,425 liters) of lube oil and hydraulic fluid that are stable. No spill is detected for the moment. People are ready to act if there is a danger. Rare species and seals, salmon, sea lions are in danger.
The waves were up to (10 metres) high and there are predictions fore more bad weather.
It is known that the drilling rig is built with a double-sided hull and secured by 7.6 centimeters steel.
Oil firms continue to explore the Arctic for oil, but the nature do not agree with their intentions.
Storms and high waves are a great menace for all of the oil drilling rigs. The rig is stranded about 60 miles (97 kilometers) southwest of the town of Kodiak.
