Excerpts from the article

Nearly two hundred oil and gas platforms rise from Texas bays and state waters in the Gulf of Mexico. Most are decades old and decades past their prime. Some have been abandoned by owners who long ago gave up trying to squeeze a few more barrels out of them. These abandoned platforms can turn into expensive headaches. And while Texas approved their installation, the state government says it’s not obligated to tear them down after their owners have stopped taking care of them.
