The 266-feet-wide Kulluk oil rig, seen here as it sat aground last Thursday, is being towed 30 miles to the north.
January 7, 2013 The Kulluk, the Shell oil-drilling rig that washed aground last weekend, is afloat and being towed to shelter on Kodiak Island in the Gulf of Alaska. The craft began its 30-mile trip late Sunday night. Examinations of the vessel have not found any signs of a leak.
January 2, 2013 Salvage crews are waiting for better weather to closely inspect the grounded Kullak oil drilling rig, stuck onshore near Kodiak Island, Alaska.
