Very bad. There's really no place to go when a rig like that blows. While I hope the missing crew are all right, odds are against them.

Hope they all made it to a survival chamber, or lifeboat... because cbelt is right; there's darn little place to escape a rig fire. And the platforms are an awful long way off the water to jump over the side!

I heard a report that said a lifeboat was spotted, but I didn't hear any follow-up about it, so it may have turned out to be an error.

The rig may need to sink to extinguish the blaze. I added some more photos.
