British Petroleum's Thunderhorse oil platform, damaged by Hurricane Dennis on Monday, has not yet been undone
British Petroleum?s Thunderhorse oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico, being damaged by Hurricane Dennis on Monday, has not yet been undone.
The platform is still lurching heavily with the lower deck to the sea surface. However, platform engineers are confident it is just a ballast problem that won't jeopardize the $1 billion platform.
BP says the platform has been stable for two days with the list consistent at 20 degrees.
