State Oil Company Blames Wind and Waves
|They all start to look alike after a while|
At least thirty oil workers were killed and dozens more were evacuated from an offshore oil platform owned by Azerbaijan’s state oil company SOCAR.*
In SOCAR’s first reports, the fact that 30 or so workers were missing was not mentioned. Then in the next reports, the fact that the odds of the missing ever being found alive were hovering around 0, what with the wind, waves, fire and all.
In the meantime, SOCAR was engaged in trying to prevent the fire from spreading to other rigs.
The state oil company is actually called the State Oil Company, but in Azerbaijani.
