Another oil well accident has happened. This time it is an exploratory well in Assumption Parish, Louisiana.

Mantle Oil and Gas LLC is the owner of an exploratory well that blew out on 8/11/10. The well is 7,200 feet and they were drilling for oil and gas. The location of the well is near LA 70, in Assumption Parish. The well blew out at about 3:30 in the morning and was spewing a brown mist of oil, up to 200 feet into the air. Locals say that it is literally raining oil, up to a mile away.

At this point, there is speculation that the Blowout Preventer (BOP) failed. This is the type of failure that is being associated with the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster, in the Gulf of Mexico. Other than general speculation about a BOP failure, details about this accident are not currently being released.

A half mile security perimeter has been established around the well.
