CNN says is a production rig not a drilling rig. There's no raw petroleum leaking into the ocean like the BP spill, it was 28 gallons of diesel fuel that spilled into the ocean

sounds like a major difference between Deepwater Horizon and this. The explosion here was above sea level right? very big difference between that and the DH situation.
