Unified Command Mum About Kulluk's Future
Thursday, January 17 2013
The Unified Command still isn’t releasing any details about future plans for Shell’s Kulluk drill rig, which ran aground near Kodiak on New Year’s Eve. Dive teams and ROVs completed an assessment of the rig’s hull over the weekend, but the results of that inspection are still under wraps. In statement Thursday, the Unified Command said multiple organizations, including Smit Salvage and Det Norske Veritas were participating in analysis of the data, and that they wouldn’t comment until the full report is received. The rig is reported to be in stable condition in the sheltered waters of Kiliuda Bay.
