    I'm not going to go into a technical explanation, mort, but "sleeving the pipe" is NOT an option.

    That rig was a semi-submersible drilling ship - legally speaking it is a vessel, which maintained position above the drilling string by station keeping thrusters. It did not stand on legs, nor was it anchored by multiple tethers. As such, it was in effect the "buoy" for the entire drilling string. The explosion, fire, and sinking of the rig means that the entire mass of the system went down in a huge jumble of bent, split, and shattered wreckage.
