Plan to free the rig Kulluk

By Accidents

US Coast Guard authorities and Shell informed that a plan had been made to tow the grounded Kulluk rig. The idea is to move it about 30 miles to Kiluida Bay for investigation.
The oil rig had to be deemed and ready to be towed, more information is not available for the moment. When the operation will take place that depends on weather, tides and readiness.
The Unified Command, which also refused give information of the towing plan to the press was still waiting on equipment to arrive to start the operation. A salvage team is onboard the rig and will be there during the operation.
Fuel tanks will not be removed at the moment (150, 000 tons of oil products).
