… Coast Guard officials say an oil rig has exploded off the coast of Louisiana.

The rig, a production platform owned by Black Elk Energy, is about 25 miles southeast of Grand Isle, La.

The platform is a production platform, unlike the Deepwater Horizon rig, which was drilling an exploratory well in mile-deep water well to the east of Friday’s reported explosion.
