Fox News broadcasted live from this platform just this morning (10/14/08). What a very interesting story. I would like to know more about this platform if that is possible. Great job on the 150k barrels a day production!! How will the new moratorium changes effect the drilling on the coast?

I worked here for a year and a half with Kenai Drilling. Mixed feelings about it. Loved my paycheck. Work was either super hard or super boring. 12 hour shifts with a 15 minute lunch break. They later got sued over this. I think the company has made changes so I would like to go back.
