    Insider News on Katrina far Worse

    The oil companies have conspired to not release these specific facts though they are known to be true,in order to prevent panic.

    The source is:>

    90% of the rigs are out for at leat three months. Gas shortages will be a fact for a long time.

    Shafts have all been bent. These have to be replaced.

    100% of the collection buoys are gone!
    A collection buoy is a connection buoy the
    tankers hook up to located between rigs that maintains a safe distance from the rigs but close enough to take on the production with
    submursed hoses fastened to the buoys from several rigs.

    It will be months before ANY GOM rig is ready
    to resume operations.

    On land, five refineries are almost demolished - not simply flooded as the oil companies said. Those refineries have very
    complex boilers, crackers and miles of bent
    pipes cause by debris hitting them at 160 MPH.
    They will quite simply have to be totally rebuilt - not simply drained and dried out!
