The damage wrought be Hurricane Dennis on BP’s massive Thunder Horse platform has not yet been undone. Lying 150 miles southeast of New Orleans, Thunder Horse is still listing heavily with the lower deck reaching the sea surface. However reports suggest 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. Pictures by the U.S. Coast Guard
