Looks like it blew the derrick right off the foundation. I had a small leak at an oil well once and it's a real pain to clean up crude. I had a neighbors well blow a line as I was driving past so I grabbed a wrench out of my truck and went running to the well to shut the line down and by the time I got it shut down I was covered in a thick coating of crude, called the fellow who owned the well and he rushed over with a clean up crew. Then gave me a ride home in the back of his truck so I could get cleaned up. Burnt the clothes, boots, and took quite a bit of scrubbing with diesel and kerosene to get me cleaned up enough to go take a shower.
Can we say EPA boys and girls.

So that is the timber containment box pulled over with heavy cables that was soon destroyed by the pressure of the oil ....
