BR could build a world-class oil rig

Baton Rouge could cooperate to form a corporation to design and build a land-based oil drilling rig capable of reaching world record depths.

Built American. Right here in Baton Rouge.

Our city is blessed with excellent truck, rail and sea transportation and extensive heavy equipment availability.

The engineering schools and the skilled-labor forces are here, and dare I say a customer is right here, too?

I am a self-employed blacksmith who works alone. There is no way for me working alone to do this, but this great city could.

I would be proud to forge the hook for this drilling rig.
