That is one heck of an article, and one long read too... Definitely worth reading though. Thanks for sharing.

My guess would be for relaxed environmental reasons. If they were anchored in the US or Britain for example, I think they would have to be maintained, surveyed, oil boomed, unions, etc.cost would be astronomical.

Good read, and we wonder why our government alone can't fix things in 6 months?
