"Colclough told CNN there are reports the production platform is still on fire. 'We don't know what caused the rig to catch on fire,' he told CNN, noting the incident is under investigation. Asked about concerns regarding oil leaks or pollution, Colclough said 'there are reports the rig was not actively producing any product, so we don't know if there's any risk of pollution.'"
