View Full Version : Dalian Port Explosion

Remember the Dalian Plant Map from BF2?
In the real world there was a recent oil pipeline accident at that location. Check out this photoblog:
Geez, another environmental mess :blink:
Nothing like the 16 hour inferno that raged near a port that contained a VLCC Ship in China that involved TWO pipelines some days ago. Something like 350 engines from 14 cities were dispatch to fight that one.
Makes me wonder what it will take to make our gas prices go up? We splash the stuff everywhere and the pump prices are steady /sarcasm.
I hope that they are able to clean those two fellas up and get that stuff off of them.

Ha, no kidding. Yep, I remember that map quite well.

What the price issue shows you is that actual OIL PRODUCTION seems to have very little to do with the pump price. My guess is that oil investments (speculators) do more to bounce the price around than anything else. 6 month from now they'll tell us that the recent issues have finally caught up with the refineries production and THEN they'll start recouping the 'spill money' from us.
